I would choose a site that offers plenty of free-rolls they are a long slog but it gives you plenty of practice without costing you a fortune.
Poker King does a free-roll every 3 hours and change formats from NLHE and PLO depending on the day so you get practice in both games. PokerStars are perhaps the biggest online poker site and the free-rolls are limited to areas and depends on Passwords and tickets so you are lucky if you can play more than 2 or 3 a day.
Also being the Biggest means there are more players, I have seen 10,000 in some.
I think more important than the "room" or site you pick is the fact you signed up on CC. This forum offers all kinds of resources to help you with your poker skills. Look through the forums, ask questions, take advantage of "free" resources and soon you will be a member of freeroll club. Then you will be able to play for hours without investing much money.
On the other hand, if money is no object, find the site that you like the most, whether it is because of the software or game selection, or whatever. I do not think you can have someone else tell you what YOU like best. Good Luck and remember if you cannot enjoy your time spent playing poker maybe it is just not worth it.
If you’re planning to not invest any money, I would choose 888poker because they have a lot of daily freerolls. If you are going to deposit, I would choose Black Chip Poker (because of their rakeback) or PokerStars (best tournaments for me and fast cashouts).
I would say 888 is a great place to start. They have 5 free-rolls throughout the day. They also have a daily spin that pretty much every time you will get a ticket to play yet another choice of 3 free-rolls. The have one .10 cent tourney a day, lots of .50 cent tourneys and $1. So 888 is a good place if you don't want to put much money in.
Poker Stars would be my next choice. They don't have as many free-rolls but they do have a lot of choice for micro games.
Those are both my favorites Hope you find a room you enjoy!! Have fun.

for a beginner, 888 poker and americas cardroom are the best options. both have a lot of freerolls and bad players at micro stakes. well bad players you will probably find on any site on micros. just play freerolls and then with your winnings register for some tournaments. good luck.
