Review LogoCardRunners is an online poker training site with the goal of instructing poker players of all skill levels. Regardless of your bankroll size or poker prowess - novice, intermediary, or veteran - CardRunners is an excellent spot for tweaking your poker skills.

CardRunners boasts over 9,000 members, as well as eight full time professional instructors, and dozens of guest instructors. The site offers a handful of training tools, including video tutorials, poker blogs, and a poker forum.

CardRunners Video Tutorials

The main feature at is the poker video library. There are currently over 450 poker tutorial videos, each of which teaches important poker lessons and tactics. CardRunners offers an easy to use search function, which allows members to browse through the 450+ videos with ease.

Like at other poker training sites, the videos at are primarily poker pros playing sessions while providing audio commentary on their every move. The videos at CardRunners primarily provide multi table tournament strategy, but you can also find instructional videos for sit and go's as well as cash games.

CardRunners Poker Blogs

Another feature at is the poker pro blogs. Each of the CardRunners professionals has a blog at, and members have exclusive access to the content on these blogs. The pros usually post about their day to day life, poker strategy tips, and recent tournament results. Poker Forum

The final main feature at is their exclusive poker forum. Only paying members can access the CardRunners poker forum, and they are treated to informative posts by other CardRunners members, as well as CardRunners instructors. The forum is perfect for players who have specific poker questions, because you can get personalized advice from the CardRunners professionals.
