Get Your Start at Pacific Poker School

Before you could learn to walk, you had to learn to stand. Before you could learn to stand, you had to learn to crawl.  And before you can learn to be a good poker player, you need to learn as much about the game as you can. Today’s new players have an endless array of poker teaching tools to choose from. There are countless books and many websites that provide information on the poker basics—check out PokerWorks Strategy Section and Poker Book Reviews.  Out of all the choices available, there’s one site that actually brings the concepts of good poker play to life—the Pacific Poker School.

The virtual classroom that is the Pacific Poker School is an artful blend of words and animation. When first arriving, you’ll be greeted by a colorful Toucan reciting Robert De Niro’s famous line “Are you talking to me?” from the movie “Taxi Driver.”  A click on the ‘Start Learning’ link will take you to the first lesson: How to Play Texas Holdem, which covers everything from the table layout to the flop, turn, river, and showdown.

The next lesson explains hands rankings from the strongest to the weakest. Then it’s on to learning about the three different variations of Holdem—Limit, No Limit (NL) and Pot Limit (PL). You’ll learn about strategy for starters, bluffing, managing your bankroll, and the particulars about tournaments, including how much it costs to enter, the prize pool, and the difference between Sit n Go’s and Multi-Table tourneys.

And in addition to a user-friendly comprehensive guide to the popular game of Texas Holdem, there are also step-by-step tutorials for Omaha Hi, Omaha Hi-Lo and Seven-Card Stud.

The Pacific Poker School presents the tips in a manner that is easily understood and entertaining. There is also an occasional pop quiz to see whether you understood everything well or need to read the theoretical part once again. And when beginning players are ready to take their game to the next level, there is a tutorial to help them take that leap.

But the Pacific Poker School isn’t just for the person who is starting from zero in terms of poker knowledge; they also remembered to include experienced players who want to continue their poker education. These instructions have the same quality in presentation that was built into the tutorials geared toward beginning players. And now, the lessons are available in French, German, and Spanish in addition to English.

Don’t forget; when you take off running without learning to crawl first, you fall. And once you’ve fallen, you are exactly where you were before you started. In other words, the Pacific Poker School is a valuable tool for all players regardless of skill level. Beginners can build their skill base and experienced players can expand theirs.

You don’t have to be a member in order to take advantage of the school, but you will need to open an account when you’re ready to join the action. Registration is simple and easy and when you register through PokerWorks, you’ll enjoy an exclusive 25% Instant Welcome Bonus when you make your first deposit and you receive 100% up to $400.
