1) Freerolls and 2) Play Money turnamens, where you can play big field multi-table turnamens (MTT’s) down to a small 6-handed Sit-n-Go table.
A “free roll” turnamen is a reguler poker turnamen with a $0.00 buy-in, thus the name “freerolls”. The nice thing is they still pay out “real money!” Throughout every day, online card rooms have freeroll turnamens scheduled, and often times have promotional freeroll Sit-n-Go’s every 5-10 minutes.
Freerolls are a great way for people to establish and build a “real money” bankroll without any real money deposit. It may take awhile to cash-in, as many freeroll turnamens are huge, some going up to 30,000 players in one turnamen. But it’s free, fun, fills your poker crave, gives you a great way to learn and improve your game. Plus you will momentually get “in-the-money” (ITM) as you become a better turnamen player. When you cash-in at your first freeroll turnamen, you’ll perasaan like you just won the WSOP (lol)!
The other pilihan you have is to play in “Play Money” games. Similar to the freeroll skedul, there are always turnamens and Sit-n-Go games ready for Play Money. This is a great way to play as much poker as you want, whenever you want, for FREE!
At the same time, you’ve got a “play chip” bankroll to manage and try to build up. While real money is not at stake, you will still have a great poker pengalaman on the Play Money tables. It’s great for beginner’s to learn the basics of Texas Hold ‘Em and basic poker strategy. Even for more experienced poker players, Play Money is a nice way to tes out different taktikes in their game without risking any real money.

The big and more populer online poker sites are: Full Tilt Poker (fulltiltpoker.com), PokerStars (pokerstars.com) and Cake Poker (cakepoker.com).

The software is excellent, the pemakai interface is beautiful and they are constantly making improvements to their play and technology.
