The WSOP Academy is heading back to Vegas for another edition of its popular poker training courses. This time around experienced players may want to take note, as for the first time an Advanced No-Limit Hold'em Academy is on offer.

There will be no shortage of poker talent there, either. Well-known players Howard Lederer, Phil Gordon, Andy Bloch, Annie Duke and Alex Outhred will all be taking on teaching roles, while poker tells expert Joe Navarro will also be in attendance to shed some light on the psychology of the game.

This is the first WSOP Academy that will concentrate exclusively on advanced No-Limit Hold'em theory and strategy. It is set to take place April 18-19 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and participants will get a chance to learn firsthand from some of the world's top pros how they took their game up a notch or two.

"If you've ever attended a poker camp before or you're a serious student of the game, now is the time to graduate to the next level," said Jeff Goldenberg of Post Oak Productions, the company that produces the WSOP Academy. "With our team of world-class instructors, our No-Limit Hold'em Advanced Academy is the sure-fire way to elevate your game to new heights."

The seminars have proven extremely educational in the past. Last year, Sally Ann Boyer took what she learned from the WSOP Ladies Academy and parlayed it into WSOP gold at the ladies event in 2007.

The WSOP Academy goes beyond just poker instruction, in-depth seminars, live hand analysis and interactive workshops: it actually gives away two $10,000 Main Event seats to winners of private tournaments held at the end of each day of classes.

The WSOP Academy's No-Limit Hold'em Advanced Academy is expected to sell out well in advance. For more information or to register for the course go to
