Best poker training sites?

I made a thread earlier about being on a downswing but someone told me that I may just be losing player. This has got me thinking I should invest more into my poker education so I would appreciate it if anybody could tell me what the best poker training sites are? Also is there anyway of obtaining free membership for these sites?

Re: Best poker training sites?

I think most sites have free trials where you can test it for some weeks?
I just know Cardrunners, deucescracked and dragthebar but there're tons of sites out there and you should be a bit more specific about what you need education on, some sites have less/worse content for SNG/cash than others I think

Think deucescracked was free to join, well just the monthly subscription cost obv

Think only cardrunners wanted you to pay 100$ or so to sign up, though I think there was a free trial so try it out

It depends how serious you are at getting better and if your willing to put the work. The sites have a ton of content. At the very least, I would recommend taking a free trial.

The major training sites all have free trials. I suggest taking advantage of these offers and then watching some videos by a variety of pros and find the one's whose style and teaching methods fit best with your learning.

Re: Best poker training sites?

Actually, are there any interactive places you can go to work on things such as pot odds etc.. and not just videos?

I think www.Pokervt.com had some sort of game or quiz where you could work on your poker knowledge, like pot odds etc. I've never actually used it so I don't know what its like.

pokervt does have interactive stuff... but yes.. any site will be a VERY good investment... if ur serious about studying/becoming a good player... watch a video on one screen.. pay a few tables on other even to multitask

ive only ever heard great things about Deuces Cracked! they have a very wide variety of coaching staff from micro stakes and affordable to high stakes pros who charge $600+/hour. plus their video content is seemingly endless. I gave been seriously considering taking coaching from their cash game specialist inavaccum...insane hand reader!! good luck

Re: Best poker training sites?

Hi,

I would suggest pokerstrategy. I've tired it and it's great. I manage to build my roll form 0$. They offerred me starting money and lots of stuff to learn. I've learned how to play and now I'm a winning player.

Re: Best poker training sites?

Depends on the stakes you play. At 2NL and 5NL you would probably get better bang for your buck buying a good book or two and spending a few months studying them. Once you hit 10NL and play seriously then the subscriptions become a much smaller % of your monthly poker income so become better value for what you are trying to achieve.

Nice necro. As someone who's seen a lot of training sites, once it's worth using them (i.e. 10NL-25NL), start with Cardrunners then use Run It Once and Ivey League once you get to SSNL.

I have tried deucescracked for a month and ended up downloading everything for NLHE microstakes to small stakes 6-max from 2011 to 2014, that way $29.90 is deff worth it. I downloaded 400 vids this way.

I might try cardrunners but it's so expensive for a low microstakes player like me and as a 18-year-old unemployed student... I don't think I am stuck to books and my downloaded vids until then, since im saving for some coaching lessons.

Well I just signed up to Deuces Cracked for my free 7 day trial. If I go from been a ****ty reg to a crusher I'll let you all know, lol.

Looks like there's a couple of good videos about balancing which I have no idea about right now anyway.

For $75 a month I'd hope that Ivey League site has some good stuff. Seems a bit steep really.
