    Full Tilt Poker Academy

    I received an email from Full Tilt a couple weeks ago touting their Poker Academy. I was a little bit skeptical and put off reading the email until just now.

    I just hit the URL and the first thing that struck me is the site looks good. The design is aesthetically pleasing. Videos are integrated into the pages. It's just pretty slick. I logged on with my Full Tilt account and it turns out I am a "Gold Member" which means I get unlimited featured content. You can become a Gold Member by gaining Full Tilt points by playing real money on the site or by finishing challenges in the Academy.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't as good of a learning community as some other pay sites offer (, for example), but it seems pretty slick. I'm sure the main goal is to make a nifty-looking community that gets more people to log on and play on their real money application, but it seems like there are some good lessons to be had, also.

    If you have time, check it out and post your comments below. I probably won't get around to logging in to it for another couple weeks, so it'd be nice to see what other people think. Thanks!
