Try I joined there and found plenty of info
on poker.  Your best bet is to get a couple of books (1) The Theory of
by David Sklansky (2) Hold 'Em Poker by David Sklansky (3) Hold'Em
Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky, Mason Malmuth (4) Doyle
Brunson's Super System by Doyle Brunson.

The best way to learn is to play ... there will be only so much you
will learn from a book before you need to jump in and play.  To
understand some of the points made in the books you will need to have
some idea of real life play.

I also remember having seminars given by a few pro's
after a big poker tournament a the Belagio in Las Vegas.  They were,
for a price, allowing you to download the seminar videos from their
web site.  This was about 6-9 months ago.

Hope this helps!
