re: Poker & Where can you learn for free?
First, you should read some literature to start playing well, I recommend you to learn the strategies first and then test them in real games as you should understand what of them are working and what are not suitable for you.
The first is The Full Tilt Poker Strategy
Guide by Michael Craig and it`s the most appropriate for a newbie as for you, this author is a professional player and he knows what he`s saying.
The second book is Every Hand Revealed wrote by Gus Hansen, also is an modern and available explanation of the major attractive methods of playing poker.
Also, don`t forget to find some psychology books about the lie mimicry, there are a lot of authoritative authors and psychologists which lucidly explain how to detect lie and how to prevent the detecting.
That`s how I learned to play poker the last time. Also, when you`ll understand how to do it, try to play some championship, but first do not spend any money, you should not be worry and so on. Remember hoe did you act while there was no any responsibilities for losing money or something like that..I started to train with the site devoted to free http://www.slotozilla.com/free-slots/reely-poker , if you don`t like it - just find anything in internet or use the games that was offered in this thread. Hope, this may help you to win anything))
