You love playing poker. PokerStars School loves helping players like you get more out of the game. Here’s a look at how our friends at PS School are engaging with you this week.

Turbo Series reflections from the Winners Wall

The 2019 Turbo Series wrapped up recently and PS School members were in the thick of the action for the entire two-week schedule. Two of them shared their experiences on the Winners Wall this week.

Mar Eclarino, a pastry chef from New Zealand who plays online as “Shamarec,” talked about his experience satelliting into a $215 Turbo Series event and then going on to cash in it.

Sylvie “muckit222” Lamoureux, who cashed in three Turbo Series events for almost $5,700, has been playing poker on and off since the early 2000s and once reached Supernova status on PokerStars. She covered a wide range of topics in her chat with PS School beyond just the Turbo Series, including how the atmosphere in poker has changed for women since she first got involved.

Strategy: Winning on the river, high-stakes Spin & Go game play

The PS School strategy archives are already deep. This week they got a little deeper with five new articles and videos.

Pete Clarke looked at five virtues of successful poker players and how to spot underbluffing and take advantage of it. Meanwhile, Dave Roemer shared four specific tips for winning more money on the river.
