This Real Poker Training review focuses on a relatively new online poker training site which provides poker lessons through the use of video and audio feeds of pro players literally ‘doing their thing’. Relying heavily on the allure and credentials of pro players David Williams and Todd Arnold, the site boasts a revolutionary way to improve our game at break-neck speeds. Real Poker Training sounds good so far right? Is it the best poker training site?
Before we take a look in more detail, I just want to let you know that at the end of this review I’ll be providing you with the links to some sample video’s provided by Real Poker Training. I strongly recommend checking these out. Whilst this review will give you more insight into the services offered by RPT, watching the actual video’s is one of the best ways to decide whether you like the ‘feel’ of the coaching that the site provides.
What’s It All About?
Most of us understand the premise of online poker training sites like Real Poker Training, but for those new to the concept, RPT provides new to advanced players alike the unique opportunity to literally watch over the shoulder of profitable poker players as they guide us through not only each stage of play, but explanations of why they act the way they do in each hand. It’s not just the instructional element of this type of poker training that is attractive, it’s the prospect of being exposed to and coming to understand the very thought processes of winning players. At the end of this review you’ll find some poker training videos and I encourage you to take a look at them to get a real glimpse of how powerful this type of poker training can be.
Look at it this way. Remember learning to tie your shoe as a kid? Our parents did it for us two or twelve times (depending on how slow we were on the uptake), then encouraged us to do it ourselves. Not only can we now all tie our shoes, the process barely requires any thought processing at all. Amazingly, poker can be the same way. That’s not to say it won’t require thought, obviously it will. But there’s a vast benefit to be had in developing our knowledge of correct situational plays to the point that what we had previously thought of as advanced poker theory becomes more instinctive.
I bit the bullet on this one and have been immediately impressed by the content available to members on the Real Poker Training Site. A word to the wise…or should I say newbies. Right from the get go, it’s clear Real Poker Training delves into intermediate to advanced theory and is specifically designed to lift average players to advanced levels, with a view to attaining a corresponding increase in player stakes. New players can still vastly increase the speed at which they can progress their game by becoming a member, but will benefit from taking the time to check out the Texas Holdem 101 section and partaking in some low stakes playing time at any of the popular online poker rooms to find their feet. I’d encourage those players to get some practical experience to really get the most out of an investment into such a dynamic poker training site as this.
