Word of the Day: Community

com·mu·ni·ty noun /kəˈmyo͞onədē/


  1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
  2. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

Each of us is part of a particular community, and the importance of belonging to a community of people who share your interests can’t be measured. Every person longs for belonging. We all want to feel that we belong and have a sense of identity with our community, whether it be large or small.

A community can mean so many things depending on how each individual experiences it. People often feel a sense of togetherness and belonging when they are around peers who share similar interests. This feeling often leads to a deeper connection between community members and greater enjoyment of their common interests - in this case, the love of poker!


The best players in the game today share ideas and collaborate with their peers within a trusted poker community to improve their play and elevate their game.

A poker community is a group of people who have come together to have fun learning and improving while supporting each other along the way. The common love of poker and the shared desire to help each other find a way for all members to grow their game in a safe and friendly place is the foundation of a community like ours.

The ability to have a community dedicated to poker where you can share experiences, mistakes, practice with each other and share advice, is just as valuable for the new poker player as it is for the aspiring professionals who are passionate about their game and want to improve it.sharing storie

We know that one of the most challenging aspects of improving your poker game is the feeling of being alone on your journey and not having a team (or, better yet, a community) to support your poker goals.

That's why we created the LearnWPT Community!

The desire for community is universal, and many find their place in groups that share a common passion or idea. There is something extraordinary about being a part of a group of people who share something they feel passionately about.

So, are you playing poker and wondering how being part of a poker community can help you grow and become a better player?

Or, you are already aware of all the benefits but you are not sure how to join and become part of this massive poker family?

No matter where you are in your poker journey, answers to any poker questions you might have can be found on The LearnWPT Community Forums. Our community members ask questions daily and get advice, feedback, and real strategy help they can put into action.

We wanted all LearnWPT Members to have the same positive feedback loop and community with the top pros in the game to help them improve and upgrade their play. The LearnWPT Community we created is a safe place, full of passionate poker players who desire to learn, achieve, and have fun achieving their goals.

The LearnWPT Community forum provides an open platform for poker enthusiasts to engage in deep discussions about all things related to the game. Whether you're looking for help with your strategy or want someone else's take on how they won a hand, there are plenty of poker players just like you waiting here who will be happy (and more than willing) to share their thoughts!

How can YOU benefit from being part of a Community of YOUR peers and Instructors?

For many aspiring players, the path to becoming better at poker begins with understanding just exactly what they can improve. When you are starting on the path to learning poker you will have many questions and most likely you won’t know a person with suitable knowledge to discuss these with you.

Well… do you have questions about your poker game like these:

  • What exactly does the term “straddle” mean and is it profitable in your live $1-2 game?
  • After I raised preflop from the SB I wasn’t sure if the best play here was to continue or just check. See my attached HIT hand. Thanks for any input and thoughts…
  • After downloading the first-in hand range charts, does anyone have tips for memorizing the ranges. Does anyone bring them to the tables with them as a guide?
  • After watching Episode #316 today I have a couple questions related to the second hand played where Nick had JJ…
  • Traveling to Vegas … best place for cash live poker 1/2 or 1/3?

These are just some of the questions Members are asking and getting answers to in The LearnWPT Community Forums.

The LearnWPT Community forums provide a space for members to get feedback, advice, and in-depth strategy help for any poker topics you want to explore. Participate in these discussions and learn new ideas and help your fellow members learn more about poker while growing your own game.


Do you love to talk about all things poker? The LearnWPT community is here for you.

Join in discussions on Cash and Tournament concepts or anything related to this game we love so much in the General Discussion forum.

The Community is a safe place for students of the game to join fellow LearnWPT Members (and our Pros!) to create that loop and:

  • Discuss concepts or issues they are encountering on the path to being a better player. Have you ever tried to learn something but found it difficult? You might be surprised at how many people have had similar experiences.
  • Receive feedback from peers on how they played a hand. Feedback from peers will help you improve your decision-making when playing hands, and it's important to observe the play and analysis to unlock new perspectives in your game plan.
  • Find answers about strategy and concepts they are unsure of. LearnWPT Instructors Eric "Rizen" Lynch and Andrew "LuckyChewy" Lichtenberger visit the community to answer questions and join Member discussions!
  • Expand their poker feedback loop to develop a continuous process for improvement. The community can help players identify what needs to be improved in their own game and provide valuable feedback and advice on how to make meaningful changes and master their game.
  • Talk all things poker related!

The LearnWPT Community is a great place for professionals to expand their poker feedback loop and develop continuous process improvement through discussion. Post and discuss ideas with other members, or share some of yours! We're excited to hear from you!
