Paul Wasicka and Brad Booth are the latest additions to the World Series of Poker Academy's roster of world-class instructors.

The two new WSOP Academy teachers are both young, up-and-coming poker prodigies.

Paul Wasicka finished second in the 2006 World Series of Poker Main Event, and he won the 2007 NBC National Heads-Up Championship in February.

"Yukon" Brad Booth has made a name for himself as a high-stakes cash game player, and can regularly be seen in the TV shows High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark.

"Both are extremely intelligent players with their own aggressive and successful styles, and they will bring a wealth of knowledge to our Academies," said said Jeff Goldenberg of Post Oak Productions, the company that produces the WSOP Academy.

Wasicka and Booth join an elite family of poker pros who serve as WSOP Academy instructors, including Phil Hellmuth, Greg Raymer, Joe Hachem, Mark Seif, Scott Fischman, Howard Lederer and Annie Duke.

Together, WSOP Academy instructors have won a combined 20 WSOP bracelets and more than $47 million in tournament winnings.

Booth will make his WSOP Academy debut at the Atlantic City event on December 1 and 2, and Wasicka will make his debut at a WSOP Academy event scheduled for the spring of 2008.
