Hi Adrienne,

it is a fun game, you should try it.

There are quite a few free sites where you can learn & practice the game. Check out this post.

Thanks,

Peg

The only problem with the free sites is they don't necessarily encourage a style of poker that consistently wins money, although it certainly beats learning by losing lots of money. I just won a month's membership in a poker school that allegedly has competition comparable to competitive real money tables, and it's a whole other game. I'm struggling so far.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress at the school.

I will post about it something like every other day, but it'll be on my external poker blog that's at the top of my blogroll.
