There are two places on the Internet that have serious poker discussions. The oldest is the rec.gambling.poker Usenet newsgroup. Like most of Usenet, the original topic (poker theory and practice) has been heavily diluted by random chat, flames, and other ills. However, you can still learn a thing or two there, and they're quite tolerant of newcomers asking basic questions.
More recently, the poker forums on the Two Plus Two Publishing website (www.twoplustwo.com) have taken over the serious discussion of how to play various hands. Well known poker player/ writers Mason Malmuth and David Sklansky run the website and contribute frequently to the discussions. You may find those discussions a bit heavy going when you first start playing the game, but they are fascinating reading once you start worrying about the more subtle points of hold'em.
