Because this thread does not have the right answer and I was looking for the "play session" button, too, i would like to answer it for future questions.

To play the tutorials/sessions it is necessary to open CFX Pre NOT over Workbench. Just search in your menu CFX and choose there CFX Pre.
At the menu tab "Session" - > "Play Session" you can choose your .pre file!
Then save it as .cfx. Afterwards you can select the Case in CFX through Workbench and start the simulation!

Have a nice day!
