Chris Moneymaker's company, Moneymaker Gaming, and Playboy have brought poker players products such as Playboy branded poker chips with logos and pictures. Now the partnership is offering hands-on training with the Playboy Poker Camp.
The camp runs Jan. 17-21 with instruction from several pro players, parties, daily tournaments and more.
Along with Chris Moneymaker, the instructors include Layne Flack, Antonio Esfandiari, David Williams and Jim "Krazy Kanuck" Worth. All of whom have had impressive showings in the World Series of Poker or the World Poker Tour.
