The most comprehensive training school in poker, Learn how to play poker with the Full Tilt Poker Academy and enroll for free.
I have an account with FullTilt and I have signed up for the academy. You can enroll for free, but … you cannot play for free. However, I think that this is yet another way for a person wanting to become more professional in their play to take advantage of the experience of other pros online. I have been working on the course entitled “Sit & Go By The Numbers” and only need to win one more “Sit N Go” in first place to complete my assignments. Just this one module has helped to improve my thinking about tourney play, position play, and cards playable at different positions and times in a tourney. There are also some great training videos and pop quizzes to test your skills and knowledge. Check out the FullTiltPoker Site for more details.
