Are you in the USA? It would help to know what sites you have access to? Also describe the term rookie? Are you like just starting poker ever? Or are you just new to online? The more details the better the advice will be.help us help you!

If you are a true newbie I would suggest playing freerolls to start. CardsChat offers some for everybody and most sites have some. pokerstars has ongoing freerolls the last several days, not sure how much longer they will last.

Don’t act like most people in the freerolls and go all in every hand. Learn the basics and apply that during the freerolls. You may not cash but you can freely practice playing good solid poker.

Read up on poker as well. Many books and sites around, as well as YouTube video and twitch streams. Also, since you are on here, check out the strategy articles under the menu section in the upper left corner.

Best of luck and have fun.

ACR has some on-demand $10 freerolls which run throughout the day, its a good place to get some poker experience in, you will have a lot of people just going all-in a bunch though

The $10 freerolls on ACR run nonstop all day. Easy to pound out quite a few of them in one sitting.

It depends on how much of a bankroll you can start with. If you have nothing then freerolls are your only choice but you will not learn very quickly playing these. I think you are better off playing $1.50 SNGs on $5.00 nl cash - you will play with people with a little skill and you will learn more.

I like micros for start, freerolls aren't real poker because most of players play it too loose so not good way to learn...

I don't agree with this... free rolls IMO opinion would be your next step up from PM. you get the experience of playing for real money without the risk. It's all a step process for learning and that would be the least risk for the most return. I'd rather start someone learning at free rolls than put them at 2NL and figure out they can't beat it... free rolls and studying for beginners would be optimal. I am up for other opinions though this is just my opinion.

Play freerolls and accumulate your bankroll. This will give you the opportunity then to go to microstoles and gain experience of the game. Since freerolls are not exactly suitable for accumulating experience.

start playing the freerolls that you have access to, that will help you to adapt to the different styles of play, although the freerolls are sometimes crazy, but I think it can help a bit.

The more you play the better. You will get comfortable playing deep into a tournament where play really is important. Freerolls offer experience with no risk. Nothing wrong with running it up from zero. Some of the legends started from freerolls. Sit and goes are also good at gaining experience.

I might suggest you try some pot limit games, one of the difficult things about no limit is the betting.

For beginners, it's better to choose tournaments based on classic Texas Hold'em with small buy-ins. You can consider the option of Sit & Go with buy-ins 0.10 $ and 0.25 $. In Sit & Go tournaments, you need to be patient and try to stick to a tight-aggressive style.

If you have a bankroll to start with, I'd recommend skipping Freerolls. I'd still play the good Freerolls like Cardschat & Jackpot, but Freerolls such as the 10$ on Demands on ACR build so many bad habits due to the way people play them.

I'd hit up micro stakes MTT's.. .10-.50. I'd also test out micro stakes SnG's so you can get a feel for which games you prefer.

Freerolls are a great way to start out in poker. Pokerstars are currently running $100, $200 and $300 tourneys every day. One day it will be $100, the next $200, the next $300, then back to $100 and so on. The structures are a little weird, because the payouts regardless of the prize pool are exactly the same up to 27th. Then they all pay $0.10 up to 800 places, the $200 one then pays $0.10 to 1,800 and the $300 one pays up to 2,800. So the $300 one is much easier to cash in than the $200 one and much, much easier to cash in that the $100 one.

You can essentially limp your way to a cash in the $300 tourneys but this is not going to teach you an awful lot or give you much of a chance getting to the bigger money and the final table. To cash in the $100 ones you've got to play some half decent TAG poker and dodge the lucky donkeys.

Once you've built your bank roll to a couple of $'s I would move on to the multi-table SnG's I like the 45 seaters, but I also play the 90 and 180 games as well. $0.25 buy-ins means your not risking loads of money, but you will start to play against better players that aren't going to look to shove pre-flop every hand.

Apart from freerolls, typical (mathimatically sound) advice is to start playing single table SNG's, not MTT's.

It is better for a beginner to choose tournaments on classical Texas Hold'em, with small buy-ins of a few cents. And even at all with qualifying satellites, which not only will make participation free, but also will give the chance to receive additional game experience. In such tournaments there will be a lot of weak and novice players, which is good for you.
