  • Our Poker Course

Our poker course is designed to be straight forward. We have spent time and effort to develope graphics and animated poker tutorials to make it easier for you to understand the rules of poker. It is normal that some students will need to go back and repeat some of the lessons. As you advance we provide you with a framework on which to build on. Once you have an understanding of the rules you will have to practise and at first this will be with play money.

Practise is very important but unfortunately play money will lead you bad habits!

So the next step after you feel comfortable with playing poker online is to play with real money. We will guide you how to start to play poker with real money in our poker course. Other poker academies just teach you the rules and lead you to sign up to a poker site, but WellShuffled.com is here with you all the way.

Some students without pacients will stop studying after they know the basics and have played a little. However those students who wish to make money will continue to learn and develop at the academy. By the time you have finished the course and have had the necessay practice you will be at an advantage to the majority of poker players you will play against.

Once you know the basics you will learn about strategy and long term winning techniques. You’ll find that 60 to 80% of your time will not be dedicated sitting and playing poker but, looking for the best tables to play at, keeping notes on other players and yourself, managing your money and your mood.
