This article belongs to the Poker Tools series and is about the best poker school online today. Poker schools are a great way of gaining the knowledge needed to take your game to the next level. However many of the available online poker schools are more or less affiliate sites in disguise.

Gus Hansen and Daniel Cates high stake poker action 2011

Thursday, March 24th, 2011 | Poker Articles, Poker News, Poker Pro | No Comments

High stake poker action during the third week of March Gus Hansen’s losing days are now a distant memory both for him and for the railbirds who follow his every move at Full Tilt Poker. Lately, it seems that whenever he logs in, he walks away from the table with a huge chunk of his opponent’s money. That trend continued over the last few days, as Hansen locked horns with Daniel Cates repeatedly and generated profits in excess of $750k. With all that, Cates didn’t do too bad himself: he ended Read more [...]

During the 3 years I've been running the Poker Bankroll Blog I've come across multiple get-rich-fast websites promising a sure way to earn heaps of money. Let me make one thing clear right from the start - when websites promise you a fool proof way of getting rich, in most cases they are the ones getting rich; not you. In order to make money you need to invest time and effort, get lucky or be brilliant. The Read more [...]

High stake poker action during the second week of March These past few days the overall online poker action may have been going through a lull, but if that was indeed the case, someone forgot to tell NoPasaran and XWINK about it. The two players locked horns at the $300/$600 PLO tables at Full Tilt, with XWINK obviously looking to ride his winning streak. It all blew up in his face this time though, and since his return, he appears to be riding a rollercoaster rather than anything else. NoPasaran Read more [...]

High stake poker action during the 1st week of March Last week (the first week of March) was an extremely happening one in terms of high stakes online poker action. Several ‘name’ pros saw action at both top online poker rooms (Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars), but quite probably the biggest story of the week was the re-emergence of XWINK at Full Tilt Poker. Provided he is indeed the same 20-something old Canadian who played at UB under the moniker XBLINK, XWINK’s story is a truly impressive Read more [...]
