Pokerstrategy is the only site i have found that offers you an easy way to get staked for $50 on a site to get your poker career started, $50 is enough to use good bankroll management and build a decent bankroll to get your poker career started.
All you have to do is sign up to the site and pass one of 3 quiz's, each have help so that you are able to pass it, e.g. the hand rankings chart.
I claimed the $50 on Full Tilt Poker and had hours and hours of fun playing, really helped me to learn and start off my career.
Not only do they have video's for you guys to watch on the site, they also have live sessions available on the site as to where experienced poker players review a tournament or cash game from another player and talk you through each hand. I find this really helps me to learn and improve my game. The sessions are available daily for all Pokerstrategy.com members however like on the video's some of the sessions require a high status.
They also have a very popular forum where players post about their sessions or anything that has happened to them whilst playing poker and generally get replies from experienced poker players to help them improve. The forum is very popular and there is always someone on there to reply to your posts :)
If you do end up busting your free bankroll on the site then there is also an option as to where if you sign up through pokerstrategy you are able to play their $100 freerolls, here is the schedule -
PartyPoker 18:00 GMT and 22:00 GMT 17:00 GMT and 21:00 GMT

Overall this is a very good site for all kinds of poker players :)
Pokerstrategy.com is a website / forum that offers members the chance to improve their poker skills. The main idea that draws users in is the fact that when you sign up they ask you to take a quiz and if you pass it they give you $50 into a poker account of your choice. There aren't any deposits to make so it really is simply free money for you to play poker with. There is a system on the website where your poker account is tracked and the points you earn on the poker website are transferred to points in your pokerstrategy account. Building up these points allows you the chance to unlock new articles to read depending on your status. These articles are very well written and thought out and teach you valuable poker theory for you to implement whilst you're playing. You can also watch videos on people playing poker and teaching you whilst you watch.
The forum part of the website offers various sub-forums where you can talk about poker, or non-poker related topics. There are areas where you can start a poker blog, or where you can ask for help about software or poker sites. The only problem is that the forum isn't as active as I would like it to be.
Overall it's a fantastic site with offers to draw a user in and a friendly, helpful community. In the month or so i've been signed up for i've learned loads about poker and improved my game a lot. The fact that they give you money to play poker with is a massive bonus as well. There are also areas of the site where you can post hands that you have played and get them evaluation by professional poker players so you can find and repair your weaknesses. There are loads of success stories if you look around the forum a bit, with many members earning a living playing poker and a lot of them started off with the deposit from this site.
I would highly recommend joining this site if you're interested in either making money playing poker or improving your game. Read the articles, watch the videos and participate in the forum. You won't regret it.
