Poker training online

Recommended Posts

I decided to compile a list of learning/help/training that is available at various sites.  The help available is generally designed for new players but some sites do offer advanced poker play help.

 

This will be an ongoing thread and sites will be added continuously.

 

I'm going to start this thread off with:

 

Blackchip Poker (USA OK).  This site offers training videos and you will find the link to these videos at the bottom of their poker home page.  Some of the subjects covered are

 

Stretch Your Poker Dollar

Fold Equity

Low Stakes SitnGos Part 1

Multitabling

 

888 Poker (NO USA) offer some very basic instructions on the following:

 

Ring Games

Texas Holdem

Seven Card Stud

Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo

Omaha Hi

Omaha Hi/Lo

No Limit & Pot Limit Games

Face2Face

 

In each section they explain the rules of each type of game, how to join them and how to play in each game.  It is quite a useful tool if you are looking to learn the rules of poker, the betting, showdown etc.  

 

Underneath the list of games, you can find the heading "Poker Tips".  Click on that and you will find some fantastic tips including:

 

Mental Preparation & Hand Selection

The Art of Bluffing

The Dos and Don'ts

Sizing up the opposition

Knowing When to Fold and When To Hold

Location, Location, Location

 

These are just a few of the 44 available tips. 

 

Of course, I can't bypass the fact that this site is offering £5/$8 absolutely FREE when you sign up.

All In Poker (USA OK) offer assistance by "finding your leak".  Basically this means their built in system (Excel boy) will find the errors in your play. 

 

The only let down with this is that you have to play 1000 hands before it will kick in.  Ideal for seasoned players, Excel boy will send you an email after you have played those 1000 required hands and tell you your biggest error in your play, how much it cost you, the pertinent hands and so on.  For beginners, there are likely to be more mistakes and therefore, the advice will not be as "targeted" as it would be for a seasoned player.  Nonetheless, this is a fantastic tool and could prove extremely useful.

 

Again, it would be remiss of me not to tell you that you can receive 5 free gold chips as a new player.

    Poker Stud Caribbean

    Poker 2-7 – three exchanges

Bluffing

 

The final area of help is tracks. This gives specific help to:

Betsson Poker offer an amazing poker academy. (Click on Poker Academy down the left hand side of the page).

 

There are 4 main headings:

 

How to Play Betsson Poker

Fundamentals of Hold'em

Hold'em Strategies

Test your knowledge

 

Don't be fooled by the lack of headings.  This is quite hefty reading and the final section, "test your knowledge", is an interactive Q & A session with 16 questions designed to test your hand, odds and outs and strategy knowledge.  At the end of the test, there is a summary of how many you got right out of 16 and an explanation for each scenario.

 

This is a really useful training section and definitely worth a visit.  You don't need to be logged in to take part or view any of this information.
