An introduction to play money: the best way to practice poker. Here's how you set up your account and how you get involved for the first time, all without investing a penny.
The list of available tables will update when you click on one of the different options, and the poker tables can be opened by clicking on their names. If there is a seat available, you take it by clicking "Seat Open".
If you lose all your play money chips, you can reload 1,000 more chips up to three times every hour.
One important thing to remember about play money tables is that some players can play very recklessly because no money is at stake. They might enter pots with any two cards.
Many of the strategy considerations we teach at PokerSchoolOnline may not be as effective at a play money table. Therefore, if you have been reading our articles and already have a fairly good grasp of how to play, you will probably benefit more from playing at PokerStars micro-stakes tables.
Play money tables are however ideal for absolute beginners to get familiar with the mechanics of poker: when to act, how to bet, call or fold, etc.
