Whether you’re looking to qualify for a big tournament like the Sunday Million or tackling small-stakes cash games, there’s no better place to refine your poker strategies than PokerStars School. Have a look at what’s in store for you at PS School this week.
Poker Satellite Strategy
With the Sunday Million 13th Anniversary coming up this weekend, EPT Monte Carlo coming up later this month, and SCOOP lurking right around the corner, mid-April is a great time to focus on winning your way into a tournament with major money up for grabs. Good thing that Barry Carter is on the scene to help you brush up on your satellite strategy!
This week Carter offers some tips on the nightly $15 buy-in, 100-seat Mega Satellites to the Sunday Million. Given that this tournament sports a $10 million guaranteed prize pool, this could be some of the most profitable advice you’ll read this month:
The closer these mega satellites are to the day of the tournament, the softer they will be. You can safely assume that the last chance satellite on April 14 will be way softer than the satellite on April 4. Not only do the last chance satellites attract more “weekend warriors” but the better players in these $15 satellites will have already qualified so won’t be in the field when you play the last chance.
Winners Wall: Working in the poker gold mine
After being introduced to poker a year ago, Chris “Mr.Balzter” Baltzer transitioned from play money to real money last September, rushing through the PokerStars School Beginners Bankroll Challenge to earn freeroll tickets.
“At the end of December after three months and 100,000 hands I had blown through my 50 buy-in bankroll at $2 NL,” he says. “This is when I decided to create (or copy) a more focused study plan.”
Enter PokerStars School. Between hundreds of hours of free content in the video archives and Pete Clarke’s Twitch streams, Baltzer says he’d found a “gold mine.”
“It’s been three months and 150,000 hands,” says Baltzer, “and I’m happy to say I’ve recouped my initial bankroll twice over and I’m winning at 6bb/100.”
