Full Tilt Poker opens new online poker training site

Poker school is in session over at the Full Tilt Poker Academy. Building on its theme of “Play and Learn with the Pros,” Full Tilt has created its own interactive Poker Academy. The academy offers training materials for players of all skill levels and all disciplines. Full Tilt pros have come out in force to serve as instructors for this new project. Howard Lederer is serving as the “Dean,” with instructors including Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Andy Bloch, Allen Cunningham, and Phil Gordon.

Whether you are a cash game player or a tournament specialist, there are lessons at the Full Tilt Poker Academy that will improve your game. In the lessons section, you can find lessons on cash games, multi table tournaments, sit-n-go tournaments, and even full courses designed to cover specific subjects. Course offering are not just limited to Holdem. You can find material on Omaha, Omaha 8 or Better, and even H.O.R.S.E.

A feature that should prove to be popular are video sessions of various Full Tilt Pros playing live cash games online. In these sessions, you get the opportunity to watch pros play everything from NL Holdem to H.O.R.S.E. You will see how they play and get to hear why they make particular moves.
Once you have worked through various poker lessons and sharpened your game, you can take things to the next level and test yourself in a couple of different ways. First, you can take part in interactive Sit-N-Learn quizzes that test your knowledge on the material covered. You also have the option of taking part in Pro Challenges. Pro Challenges are sets of skill objectives that one must meet either in a cash game or in a tournament setting. Upon completion of challenges, members will receive Academy Points that can be used to purchase items from the Full Tilt Poker Academy store. At the store, members can purchase various items, including Full Tilt gear, tournament buy-ins, cash, and books.

Members will be able to use the My Academy feature of the site to track their progress through the lessons on the site. They can review which lessons they have completed, which Sit-N-Learn quizzes they have taken, and even their ranking among other quiz takers. Each month, the top scorers in the Sit-N-Learn quizzes will have the opportunity to play each other in a free roll setup for academy members.
There are two ways that one may signup for the Full Tilt Poker Academy. There is a free signup form at the site that new users may use. If you are already a member of Full Tilt Poker, then there is nothing you need to do to signup. You can use your login name and password for Full Tilt at the Full Tilt Poker Academy.
With the wide array of knowledge and experience brought to the table by the Full Tilt pros, the Full Tilt Poker Academy should prove a smashing success with poker players across the world. If you want to learn how to play poker, then signup or login to the Full Tilt Poker Academy.
