Getting started

Poker is used to enhance confidence, emotional intelligence, and assertiveness while sharpening strategic-thinking and decision-making skills that translate to all areas of life, from classrooms to boardrooms. Our poker lessons give you real-world examples of how poker skills apply to everyday situations and give you plenty of opportunity to practice.

Our poker lessons and poker games are for educational purposes. Poker Power does not permit gambling in clubs, and no money transacts. We use poker chips to simulate the betting, calling, and raising experience.

No poker experience is required to start. Poker Power offers a unique approach to learning to play poker, making connections between poker skills and the skills that benefit women+ at work, at school, and at play. We welcome all women+, with any level of poker experience, into our poker lessons, games and events.

We think all women+ should learn to play poker. We suggest the age range of 13+ works best with our Poker Power curriculum.

Poker Power clubs, the group that you take weekly lessons with, are held over video conference for one hour a week for four weeks to start. Once you complete Poker Power Beginner lessons, you have the option to extend for an additional four weeks in Poker Power Intermediate lessons, and another four weeks for Poker Power Advance lessons.

How often you join Poker Power community games and events is entirely up to you. Our community poker games and events can last about an hour, depending on the number of participants and how long your chip stack lasts. There are numerous opportunities to join poker games and events every week.

We have weekly, live community poker lessons starting every month. Our community lessons are a real-time, group experience led by an expert Poker Power instructor in a video conference classroom. Enroll in our Beginner classes if you’re new to poker and the Poker Power curriculum!

Download the Poker Power Play app to begin playing immediately and for free! Our bite-sized in-app lessons make learning poker a breeze and allow you to learn at your own pace, anytime. 

We love to hear from our male allies! The Poker Power mission is to teach 1 million women+ poker in a comfortable, motivational environment. At this time, we are only teaching women+ how to play poker. However, our male allies are essential and we are in the process of creating ways for our supporters to be more involved with Poker Power. Learn more about Poker Power here. Make sure you follow us on social media and encourage the women+ in your life to #joinpokerpower!


We use poker chips to simulate the betting, calling, and raising experience found in poker games and a leaderboard for games and events.

We want our Poker Power community always to feel safe and supported, so we use a 100% virtual model, with video conferencing and a mobile app play for our live, weekly poker lessons and one-on-one private poker lessons.

We recommend attending all poker lessons in order, as they build upon each other. If you miss a live session with your class, speak with your instructor about joining a make up class.

No worries! Poker Power provides an easy reference handout for each lesson, and we host a beginner review and class session every Monday. Contact your instructor for make up class details.

Cost and fees

There is no cancellation fee if lessons are cancelled prior to the series beginning. Once elected lesson package has begun, no refunds will be permitted and all rescheduling must be done at least 48 hours prior to any scheduled lessons.

Our Beginner poker lessons are provided for $70 USD for a series of four classes. Poker Power is on a mission to teach 1 MILLION women+ how to play poker, because the skills gained from playing poker are so essential for women+ in their everyday lives.
