PSO becomes PokerStars School
Countless poker journeys have begun on PokerStars, specifically what was formerly known as PokerSchool Online, where amateurs and professionals alike learned about the game and refined their skills.
Last week PSO become PokerStars School with a new look, some new features, and what we think is a more interactive and user friendly website. Check out the PokerStars School homepage here.
