WSOP Academies announce two new dates

The WSOP Academies, which provide premier instructional poker camps and workshops, have announced two two-day workshops in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

The Academies offer in-depth seminars, live hand demonstrations and interactive workshops that cover all aspects of No-Limit Texas Hold 'em strategy, from playing position and calculating pot odds to the importance of aggression and changing gears.

The first instructional camp is set for Nov. 7-8 at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. This camp features firsthand strategy and advice from top professionals: Phil Gordon, Mark Seif, Paul Wasicka, Alex Outhred, poker tells expert Joe Navarro, Prof. Charley Swayne (an expert in probability and statistics specifically as they relate to poker) and Sam Chauhan (a motivational speaker who will be teaching a seminar on the optimal poker mindset).

If you can't make Nov. 7, the WSOP Academies are offering a second two-day camp on Nov. 22-23 at the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City. This camp's professionals include 2004 World Champion Greg Raymer, Alex Outhred, Hevad Khan and poker tells expert Joe Navarro.

Tuition for the Advanced Academy is $1,999, with a payment of only $499 required to secure a spot. The cost of the Atlantic City event is $1,499, with a payment of only $375 needed to register. If you can't afford the whole lot up front, WSOPA is offering a "Play Now, Pay Later" payment plan.

The payment plan allows players to secure a spot for a down payment worth 25% of the total cost. The remaining balance will come due over the next three months in three equal monthly installments.

"We're making it easier than ever for poker players to invest in their poker game and become winning players with our Play Now, Pay Later program," said Jeff Goldenberg of Post Oak Productions, the company that produces the WSOP Academy.

"Our WSOP Academy events this November will feature some of the biggest names in poker sharing their secrets and strategies. I'm confident our Academy grads will walk away with the confidence and skills they need to be a threat at the table."

Both camps conclude with a private tournament rewarding the winner with a $5,000 WSOP Circuit main event seat at an event of their choice.

Space is limited at all WSOP Academy events, and both events are expected to sell out in advance.
