WSOP Academy to Hold Cash Game Camps in Early 2009

Share this
The World Series of Poker Academy always seems to have a handle on what poker playerswant, as they offer poker instruction for beginner through advanced levels of play, ladies only, and now cash game action. The latter is the WSOP Academy’s latest offering in the form of the Cash Game Academy and will be available twice in the first six weeks of 2009 before adding more camps to its schedule.

While tournament play, especially no-limit hold’em events, are all the rage, there is a large contingent of cash game players who are ready to improve their skills, as well as some who are looking to establish themselves in the cash game arena. The WSOP Academy heard the call and will provide a series of instructional camps for players of all skill levels. The new Cash Game Academy is a two-day poker participatory seminar dedicated to no-limit hold’em cash games.

The first of the series will be presented at Harrah’s Atlantic City on January 24th and 25th and will feature instruction from Mark Seif, Paul Wasicka , and Alex Outhred. And the second will be held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on February 7th and 8th, and Seif and Outhred will be joined there by Michael Gracz. All of the instructors have made a living at cash game play during their professional poker careers.

Each WSOP Cash Game Academy will involve the teaching of cash game strategy via seminars, live play workshops, and video analysis of actual hands played. Topics covered will include making the transition from tournament to cash game play, reading opponents and determining hand ranges, bankroll management, and in-depth strategies. In addition, there will be a live cash game in which the player who made the most correct decisions and managed his or her bankroll best will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Caesars in Las Vegas for the WSOP Academy Tournament of Champions just before the 2009 WSOP.

Brandon Rosen of Post Oak Productions, the WSOP Academy production company, noted, “The WSOP Academy has successfully helped players make it to the final table and win bracelets by teaching tournament strategy, but to become an overall winning poker player you must also become a consistent cash game player. Your cash game skills and results will likely determine your success and more importantly, your longevity as a poker player. With this in mind, we created the Cash Game Academy… Now, much like they have done for our Tournament Academies, the WSOP Academy instructors will now impart their knowledge and expertise for cash games.”

To register for either of the two upcoming Cash Game Academies, a payment of $499.75 is all that is required to hold the seat. The entire cost of the course is $1,899.00, but in recognition of the holidays and difficult economic times, tuition for each course can be paid over the course of three subsequent months.

Speaking of the holidays, this could be one of the most important gifts for the poker player in your life. A course that could help set them on a path to financial independence in a game that they love? Priceless.

Space is limited, so visit www.WSOPAcademy.com now for more details and payment options.
