ClubWPT is unusual poker room because of subscription system. When you create new account it has basic status and you need to upgrade it to a VIP in order to take part in serious games. You need to purchase subscription. What does it mean? Let me explain:
If you are familiar with other poker rooms you know that they require every player to make deposit. Otherwise a player can't play in tournaments with real money prizes. If you don't deposit you have to play for "play money" or "play chips". Thus you have to make deposit in order to participate in serious games.
Poker rooms require players to deposit their money. But they don't care that poker is a risky game and only 10 out of 100 new players will make profits. A new player has no chances to win if he plays against serious guys.
A lot of new players who have just started their poker career have no strategy and knowledge. They deposit their money and most likely loose the entire deposit because of their weakness. How can a newbie win a game against pro players?
The good news is that all pro players did not know a lot about poker at the beginning. All of current pros were newbie.
Now you know all the truth about poker world. It's impossible to survive in a traditional poker room if you are not familiar with the game. That means the general task is to survive and learn how to play poker smart. But how can you learn if you have already lost all the money on your account? In traditional poker rooms you have to make another deposit. And nobody can guarantee that it will help you to succeed. That means you can not progress until you put another portion of your money on the table.
WPT club has other system! A player needs to purchase subscription in order to start playing. The fee is always the same but every player has chances to win very good prizes here. You do not risk your own money; you do not need to deposit again and again. You just purchase a subscription and play. ClubWPT gives you an opportunity to understand rules of poker, to create your own strategy and to learn basic poker techniques. You will understand when to call and when to fold.
You may ask: “Why should I purchase subscription if I can learn all this in “play money” games?” The answer is you can not master all these things playing on “fun money” tables. Fun money games can help you to learn hand rankings, but nothing more. People who play fun money poker do not bother about their stakes. Many of them know only one button: all-in. It is not interesting to play such games, and the worst thing is that such games will not teach you. You will not be able to understand psychology of poker because your opponents do not care about winning the game. The only way to become a good player is to play tournaments where prizes are real. This stimulates every player to show the best game and you will have to play against such opponents. This will stimulate you to grow.
The best way to learn is to participate in tournaments with good and real prizes. ClubWPT is a place where you can participate in such games without risking your capital. Many players started their career playing at WPT club. It is a good place for developing your own unique style. Just try and you will understand whether poker game is for you or not.
