FullTilt Poker School
Similar to many other pokerrooms, FullTilt Poker too offer their customers a section on the site, which is comparable to a poker school. Here everyone who is interested can find information on online poker 24/7.
By clicking on the tab called ‘How to Play’ you can find a comprehensive collection of useful articles on poker. Anything from the explanations of all poker variants offered – the articles are offered in a summarized and an extensive version – to a guide through the poker software and a huge glossary is offered here, to make you the best poker player you can be. Even if you majorly improve your poker skills though, you will still need some kind of external player aid to maximize your winnings. The different poker variants' explanations - these are the games covered:
- Texas Hold’em
- Omaha Hi/Lo
- Seven Card Stud
- Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo
- and those of the different game types (e.g. Turbo Games or Double Stack Games) are – as I have already mentioned before – available as summarized versions too. These short explanations are concise and well written, and they include explanations of the different limits which even include screenshots and graphics for better understanding. The long versions thoroughly analyze and explain all elements of the different poker variations, such as what blinds exactly are or how the different limit options and the showdown actually work.
A special part of the pokerschool are the in-depth descriptions of the different hands and their value – first high and low hands are defined and then a list of low hands describes why a certain hand is stronger than another. This part of the page sure is capable of even surprising the one or the other poker pro. Another part of the ‘How to Play’ section of the site is the one called ‘Game types’ – here things like Speed Tables or Capped Games are explained. Right below this point, the different tournament variants are described – so one can already decide on the best type of tournament before even going to the lobby of the poker software. The tournament lobby is described here too, to avoid you having to search long for you preferred type of tournament.
