Want to improve your poker skills to become a better player?
Want to understand the game a little better?
There are online poker academies that are there to help you to play your best game.
From one of the biggest online poker rooms out there comes an academy that will make the best of your game. The Full Tilt Poker Academy is a unique and interactive experience in which players can learn for free. That's right, enrolment won’t cost you a thing. If you already have an account at Full Tilt Poker, you can use your existing player ID and password.
Materials include a vast library of multimedia content including podcasts, quizzes and tests, hand replay and videos suitable for players of all skill levels. You can also be assured that the materials provided are worth their salt because they are presented by the Full Tilt Poker Pros themselves, all of whom boast a staggering collection of WSOP bracelets and WPT titles. Become the best by learning from the best.
ProPlayLive is another poker school that provides training videos from well known instructors that have impressive credentials including Greg Raymer, Annie Duke, Tom McEvoy, Erik Seidel, Alex Outhred, Bill Chen and more.
Unlike the Full Tilt Poker Academy, the videos at ProPlayLive are catered more towards advanced players only so if you are new to poker, we suggest you tackle the basics of the game first. How it works is that the instructors at ProPlayLive play in real online money situations from tournaments to sit'n'go's cash games and every move they make is recorded while the instructor shares his/her way of thinking. This gives you a really interesting insight into how the pros think and how they assess every situation they come across.
Membership at ProPlayLive costs $19.95 a month with an initial one time setup fee of $49.95. Samples of what you can expect from their library can be seen below
