Players should come to the World Series of Poker with some basic fundamentals of tournament poker, especially if they plan to plunk down thousands of dollars to compete in the biggest tournament fields in the world. But for those looking for extra pointers and some tips from proven winners, it is best to get that advice from people who have been there and know how to win. Enter ten-time WSOP bracelet winner Doyle Brunson and renowned poker author Mike Caro.
The two world-famous personalities decided to offer Power Poker Seminars for all WSOP poker players, and the four courses, which normally command an entry fee of $95 each, are being offered at no charge to those at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino for the 2009 WSOP who are 21 years of age or older. However, it should be noted that if previous seminars are any indication, seats fill early and quickly, as they are first-come, first-serve, and even standing-room space becomes limited.
The courses will be held in Pavilion 9 of the Rio Convention Center on two separate weekends in June, with Caro beginning each seminar with specific poker tips, and ending with Brunson and Caro hosting a question-and-answer session. The schedule of events is as follows:
Saturday, June 13 @ 10am - Best Hold’em & Tournament Advice Sunday, June 14 @ 10am - Best Real World & Online Poker Advice Saturday, June 27 @ 10am - Tells, Psychology & Manipulation Sunday, June 28 @ 10am - Grand Poker Seminar - 50 Best Tips
The goal of the series is to help players in preliminary events but especially in preparation for the 2009 WSOP $10K buy-in main event. Caro will use his vast knowledge of poker that he used to create the Mike Caro University of Poker, Gaming and Life Strategy, which has been in business for more than ten years, to coach players who look to play the games of their lives at the biggest and most prestigious tournament in the world. Brunson, who needs no introduction, will convey some of the many lessons he’s learned through a lifetime of poker and numerous accomplishments and accolades, ten of which are the ten WSOP bracelets he has earned through those years.
The unique opportunity requires no reservations to attend the seminars, only early arrival so as to secure seats.
