PokerStars is bringing back its Poker Camp for a second time, and it will take place at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure this January.

The first Poker Camp took place at the EPT stop in Barcelona earlier this season, and the second camp will take place in the Bahamas along with the Caribbean Adventure at the Atlantis Hotel and Casino.

The Poker Camp is scheduled for an extended three-day schedule Jan. 7-9. Poker Camp qualifiers will participate in morning and afternoon modules led by world-class instructors and members of Team PokerStars Pro such as Greg Raymer, Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and Vanessa Rousso.

That's two former World Series of Poker Main Event champions plus a four-time bracelet winner and one of the top female players out on the tournament trail teaching PokerStars players the tricks of the trade.


The Poker Camp modules will combine lectures and presentations and include interactive sessions like live hand analysis.

According to PokerStars, the camp's activities have been designed with flexibility in mind. Modules have been set up so participants can mix and match classes from various modules to suit their interests.

One set of modules will focus on conquering large-field, deep-stack live tournaments - like the PCA main event. This includes the structure of the Camp tournament, which will allow 60 players to put the daily lessons to the test each evening.

Once the learning sessions are over, the participants will put what they learned into practice in an exclusive tournament open only to the PokerStars Poker Camp participants.

There are also many options at PokerStars for players to get their spot in the Poker Camp. They can buy in directly using any of the PokerStars currencies such as cash, FPPs and W$, or they can qualify through online poker satellites for as little as $11.

The Poker Camp will also be open to the guests of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure qualifiers. Their family and friends will have the chance to participate in several sessions of the camp that will be open to a wider audience.

These sessions will include a Poker 101 teaching the difference between odds and outs. There will also be sessions open for more advanced players as well.
