FoldorRaise.com presents users with a starting-hand and post-flop scenario and allows the users to decide whether they would fold, call, raise or make a big raise.

After “playing” a hand, users can then see what other players selected. The site also reveals the probability of that hand winning against other hands and offers advice on how experts would play each scenario. Users can also post and read comments about playing the hand.    

“We see consistent trends among all players where they fail to understand how their position and the previous betting at the table changes how a hand should be played. Using FoldorRaise.com is a much cheaper way to learn how to play (it’s free) than losing money at the tables,” said Tyson Lowery one of the site’s founders.

“If you’re wondering what the holes in your game are, FoldorRaise.com will tell you,” says Rusty Szurek, another founder. “Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned veteran, you’ll benefit from knowing which hands you might be misplaying.”

“More and more people are playing Texas Hold-‘em because of the popularity of the World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker, but many players still don’t realize that good Texas Hold-‘em is a game of folding and raising — not calling.” says Szurek. “Our goal is to help players understand how certain hands should be played to maximize their chances of winning.”

The site is a free alternative to poker boot camps like those just announced by the World Poker Tour (NASDAQ:WPTE) which cost $1,495.
