If you havent seen ads around where you live you can check out their website at nationalpubpokerleague.com. Normally done at clubs, or sports bars this outlet is a great way to learn poker. It is totally free and you are just playing for points and meeting others who like to play poker. Supposedly you can trade in points for t-shirts caps, and some big ticket items. In my area they have two sessions a night wherever they are playing one at 7pm and one at 10pm. In Knoxville if you win a nightly tourney you get a seat at a regional, win regional and you go to an online tourney 10 man table, win that and youve gotten yourself into the wsop for absolutely nothing except time. Ive been four times and have had a great time. There are plenty of new players each night so beginners dont feel nervous about showing up. There are people there who can help explain the game and how its played. Hope this helps anyone out there looking for some fun poker action.
