Find out what's on Phil's mind when it comes to advanced No-Limit Hold'em.

You've spent thousands of hours playing hands, keeping track of your play and your bankroll, and honing your observation skills to keep track of the players at the table - now you're ready to take your game to the next level.

The World Series of Poker Academy announced it has added another class for poker players that can take them to that level. The Academy will host its first-ever poker camp focused exclusively on advanced No-Limit Texas Hold'em theory and strategy April 18-19 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

According to the Academy, the two-day poker camp will cover "next-level" topics such as winning cash game strategy, advanced tournament stage strategy, heads-up strategy, advanced mathematics of poker and more.

"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 producer of 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 WSOP Academy has created a "dream team" of instructors for this camp, including Howard Lederer, Annie Duke, Phil Gordon, Paul Wasicka, Andy Bloch, Alex Outhred and others. Retired FBI agent and poker tells expert Joe Navarro will also present an advanced seminar on decoding poker tells.

Along with the lectures from the pros, the No-Limit Hold'em Advanced Academy will also offer the opportunity for participants to hang out and play poker with the pros and compete for two $10,000 buy-in seats in the 2008 WSOP Main Event.

The seats will be awarded to the winners of private tournaments taking place at the end of each day of the Academy.

"We're thrilled to be giving away two seats to the 2008 WSOP Main Event," Goldenberg said. "Last summer we had one of our participants, Sally Ann Boyer, go from Academy grad one day to world champion the next. That's the kind of confidence and skills students take away from our Academy, and we expect our seat winners to compete at the absolute highest levels at this year's WSOP."

The No-Limit Hold'em Advanced Academy costs $1,999, and space is limited. For additional details for this and other Academy camps, visit
