Training Sites for Online Poker

Did you know that less than 10% of online poker players make money!

One of reasons why poker players never make money is because they don't take the time to properly learn the game.  They assume that they are an expert because they won a home game with friends once, that they will probably be able to make a killing playing online.  This belief couldn't be more wrong.

Any poker player that is serious about trying to make money playing poker online, needs to invest some of their time and money into understanding the game properly.  Up until about 1 year ago, the only way to do this was to buy books like Doyle Brunsons' Super System.  Don't get me wrong, this is a great book, and it definitely can't hurt to read this plus some of the other great poker books out there, but this is the 21st century and there are even better ways to learn the game: Poker Training Sites.

Poker Training sites allow their subscribers to watch videos online posted by players that ARE winning LOTS of money playing poker online.  These videos are used to tutor the subscribers so that they can understand what the best players do when tricky situations arise.  Their main goal is to teach you to THINK like a winning poker player.

Are Poker Training Sites Worth The Money?

This probably depends on what stakes you are playing for.  If you are grinding away at the $0.10/$0.25 tables and not getting anywhere, it probably won't provide you a huge return on investment unless you put in a lot of hands every month because the stakes are too low.  Though, if you are playing at any level above this, an investment of around $20 every month is nothing compared to the average pot size.  If you are having trouble and aren't winning, then this small investment is a no brainer.

Best Training Site Offer

If you are a beginner to online poker and not from the USA, one of the best poker training sites you can use is PokerRoomSchool.  Not only do they provide you with a free basic poker education, they also give you some money to get going.
