888 or pokerstars have good small level games and their software is user friendly for beginners to play on.

partypoker on a PC - they have freerolls every hour with lots of payouts of tickets for other games, they have just introduced ‘wiz’ their poker trainer who - If you want him to will assess your play hand by hand and advise on whether you did the right thing. After you’ve played so many hands you’ll get a full report identifying any leaks (but also celebrating strengths) and then it tailors ‘missions’ for you to work on your leaks. It’s pretty good. You have to have a clue because it will sometimes be upset that you didn’t fold K9 to an all in that meant you calling 100 more chips into a 5k pot even though you hadn’t hit it just because you are priced in, and it’s not looking at the whole picture just the basic facts. It doesn’t keep tabs on the other players you know have nothing. But it does give you some ideas on what you need to work on.

The games are a lot smaller fields lots of sit n gos, lot softer field. Lots of cheap satellites and chances to enter bigger but ins cheap - and lots of ways to build confidence and experience.

888 is another place for newbies - players lot softer and lots of freerolls.

I would advice you to stay away from GG - fields are HUGE and the site is very geared towards pressure, making decisions quickly, a lot of games that are just all in shootouts or start out with skill but end up with you going out even if you were the better player because the others guy dragged his timebank so it went into all in mode. Even the dramatic music puts you under pressure and then you don’t make good decisions. It’s not the place to learn poker.

Good luck

if you are a complete beginner, then 888 will be a good option. I would also recommend red star and pokerking, and I left pokerstars for later))

my opinion is that after all, start where there will be more freerolls, so as not to spend your funds on the game at the beginning, you can also improve your game on them, if he is a complete beginner. What are these rooms? I think 888poker and pokerstars
888poker definitely because the field is small and you also have many freerolls

888 is for sure, but I'm not sure about PokerStars. PokerStars has severely limited freerolls, so this is not an option for a beginner. 888, without question, there are always a lot of freerolls and any beginner can use these freerolls to learn the basics of the game without risking their own money.

I'm not sure it's really about the poker room that would be best for a beginner but looking for tournaments or games that allow you to have fun and learn the game. Free rolls of the great for a person who is not played at all to learn the basics and get used to the software but even they don't play as real of a game there. I think the best thing for a person to do is look for a site that's safe and allowable where they live but also has small buy INS and if they like tournaments smaller fields. Winning 300 buy INS is great, starting off in a tournaments where you're playing 4000 people to get that big win a new player is more likly to go broke and give up playing the game

For beginners, PokerStars is an excellent choice due to its extensive range of tutorials, free play options, and user-friendly interface. 888poker is another good option, offering a beginner-friendly platform with frequent freeroll tournaments. Finally, PartyPoker provides a solid balance of ease of use and helpful resources for new players.

Always used to play the freerolls on Poker Stars...well, I still do, BUT I'm enjoying the freerolls on Party poker because they're so deep stacked.
Where Poker Stars almost always start you with 12.5BB, you can start 100BB deep on Party Poker.
So it gives you a chance to play to your strengths rather than finding that ace in the first hand and joining the shove fest.
You still get shovey players, but now you've got a stack to sit on while you wait for the monster and a snap call.

I think there are some different points. I actually live in germany and so there are some political restrictions. I play on 888 and there are some nice freerolls. So you could build your bankroll without your own money. Another site is gg Poker, there you get a daily gift so this is another chance to create you bankroll for free,
