PokerVT Full Review
PokerVT is arguably the most well designed poker training site on the internet today. It easily presents topics about poker to train members to become more proficient at game play strategy and mathematics. The site’s main spokesperson and lead instructor is one of the biggest names in poker history, Team PokerStars Pro front man Daniel Negreanu. Its registration fee is frequently reduced, allowing poker hopefuls to get in on the action relatively cheaply:
The site’s videos are structured a lot differently than its competition. The main navigation at the top shows your progress, videos watched, and scores for some of the interactive quizzes that are set up. The quizzes will ask you about certain game play scenarios and are an important learning tool. There are also some games to put your theories to the test. The “What’s New” section is probably the best place to find videos to watch. Finally, there’s a forum that seems pretty active with students and instructors alike:
Finding a specific video isn’t a very easy task. For smaller topics, specifically involving the math tutorials (two courses), Negreanu’s Custom Course on Hold’em (five courses), and Negreanu’s Hand Analysis (three courses), clicking on the “Box” and “Select Category” will get you to each video.
The other section is “Online Poker Instruction from Winning Online Pros,” which features 28 courses from all of the other coaches in the stable. If you click on “Select Category,” you’ll see a list of topics that are broken out into boxes and feature a thumbnail, headline, and a quick description. Unfortunately, there is no standard way to find out whether a video is about a particular game.
There’s often no telling whether a given video is about tournament or cash play, although some say text like “MTT Secrets” in the description. Once you’ve clicked on one of these boxes, there is a list of videos. Clicking on the title of one of these courses, the video series is broken out across various segments that range between five and 15 minutes.
The video quality is excellent and the videos come in faster than most sites, while preserving quality. There is a “Full Screen” option, but no way to download the video to watch it locally on your computer or mobile device, unlike other poker training sites.
In the end, PokerVT has the glitz and glamour of some of the world’s biggest names in poker, but its directory isn’t quite up to par with other training sites. Since the site is relatively new and more videos are coming out, it might be one to watch for in the future.
