Going Back to School

April 9th, 2018

Even at the highest levels of sports, with the top players in the world, you’ll still find a whole team of coaches and personal trainers waiting in the wings. That’s because no matter good you are at what you do, you can always get better. There are always new skills you can learn and existing skills that you can sharpen up to improve your game. And the same is true of poker.

At the PokerStars School, you’ll get the chance to become the best player you can be, whether you are already a leading, big tournament winner or you are just getting to grips with the game for the first time.

The school covers everything you ever need to know about poker, from the basics of each game, including Five Card Stud, Omaha and the ever-popular Texas Hold ‘Em, to advanced poker strategies and skills. They will cover the rules as well as the etiquette; what to do and what not to do to get the best out of any game, whether you are playing for fun online or live for real money at a tournament or casino.

You can learn in whatever way suits you best, with a choice of written articles, online videos or live lessons. You can even join a community of fellow players to learn together and share your experiences along the way.

The PokerStars School will teach you how to evaluate your hands quickly and accurately, using strategies such as the Chen Formula or David Sklansky’s hand ranking tables. They’ll show you the best strategies before and after the flop, and how best to play the river.

The school also teaches some of the subtler skills of poker such as the mental game, showing you how to bluff successfully and how to assess what your opponents may have by their body language.

Of course, no matter good we are and whatever level we play at, we all make mistakes. But with the PokerStars School, you can learn from the mistakes of others, rather than your costly errors. The “Poker Pitfalls” series covers everything from common mistakes on the turn to raising for no reason just to stay in the game. Check these out and you could avoid making the same mistake.

The school boasts the world’s biggest poker training archive, so whatever you need to know, whatever the weaknesses in your game, you can find solid advice, handy tutorials and straightforward videos to help you fix the problem and become a better player.
