Live training sessions allow you to interact with our instructors while they play and analyze hands in real time. Follow the instructions below to register and take part in a session.

Step 1: Join PokerStars School

In order to benefit fully from the services of PokerStars School, you have to join.

Step 2: Registering for a session

In order to register for a session you must first select the desired session in the schedule.

Now you should see detailed information about the session.

In addition to a short description about session content and information about how much time is left before a session starts, you can find information about available places, the trainer, and duration of the session.

Once you have decided what session you would like to attend you must 'Add' them to your personal schedule. (No. 1 in photo) Once you do this the session will appear in your personal scheduler at the top of the page (No. 2 in photo) and you are now registered for that session. Live training sessions can be 'Opened' 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.

If you have added more than one session that you wish to attend you can get a complete overview by selecting 'Full Schedule' (No. 3 in photo).



You are registered!

Step 3: Opening the session

At the beginning of each session, the session information has to be accessed again. Approximately 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time you will see a new button: "Open". You must click on it to go to the training session. Participation seats (allowing you to use the chat box) will fill up first. Once the participant seats are full members attending will be allowed to view only (no chat option).

The training player will appear and the session starts.

You can't see a table? You can't hear the trainer? Post your issues in the special our Live Training Forum and the trainer will assist you.

Step 4: During the session

Now it is up to you to take full advantage of the training session. The trainers play live and in real time at the PokerStars tables. There will be easy and difficult situations. As a participant you should pay close attention to how the trainer handles them in order to fully benefit from the learning experience.

If something is not clear to you or you think it was not explained in sufficient detail, you can use the chat function as a full participant. Here you can ask questions. Please make sure that your question is as specific as possible so the trainer knows what it is about.

The more specific the question, the better the trainer's answers.

During a session, the Live Training Rules of Participation apply.
