Free Seminar Series - WSOP & Bad Beat on Cancer

Share this

The 42nd Annual World Series of Poker 2011, has a special invitation to the poker community and that is a seat in 11 unique free admission seminars on different poker related subject matters by respected poker pros. Prevent Cancer Foundation and the Nevada Cancer Institute are official charities of the WSOP and they are offering the "First Annual Bad Beat Seminar Series" that will bring together some of the greatest minds in the game of poker who will be sharing their personal insights, instruction, and stories in an hour long session prior to the day's WSOP play.

All 11 speakers are donating their time for these events with the hope that attendees will either pledge 1% of their WSOP tournament winnings to Bad Beat on Cancer or will give a $20 donation to Bad Beat on Cancer - 100% of the donations are tax-deductible.

The seminars are expected to include 45 minutes of lecture time/discussion, followed by interactive Q & A from the audience that will run approximately 15 minutes.  To attend the seminars go to the Brasilia Ballroom in the Rio convention Center at 10:30 AM daily.  The Brasilia is directly adjacent to the tournament rooms where the WSOP is being played.

The inaugural 2011 lineup brings some of the most well-known names in poker and includes the two leading WSOP bracelet winners in history, two of poker's most successful women, two high stakes cash game players, and other unique poker personalities.  The scheduled line-up:
