Get primed at World Series of Poker Academy

Let Hellmuth tell you how it's done.

The World Series of Poker Academy wants to get players primed for the Main Event, and not at one Sin City's many nightclubs.

Seats are still available for the three-day tutorial at Caesars Palace in the days leading up to the championship.

Running July 3-5, the primer preps players to get the best return on their $10,000 investment when the first day of the Main Event starts July 6.

On hand to teach the budding poker players is an A-list roster of pros: Phil Hellmuth, Greg Raymer, Scott Fischman, Joe Navarro, Alex Outhred, Mark Seif, Joe Hachem and others.

If you've got the inclination and the $2,200 entry fee, there is still time to get in on the action by registering here.

At least one of the players attending this year's academy will be there on scholarship. Michael Gartman earned his way to the poker tutorial through a WSOP-sponsorship program.

It might be too late to take that route to get in on the 2007 primer, but the option is still available for future World Series academy events.

All you have to do is tell the WSOP, in 100 words or less, why you think you deserve the scholarship and how the academy will take your game to the next level. Then just send it off to with your full name and daytime contact information.
