August 27, 2008 - If you've ever wanted a shot at the poker big leagues, then you may want to consider attending the World Series of Poker Academy. Personally, I didn't even know there was a WSOP Academy. And not that I don't think it's a great idea (Phil Hellmuth Jr. has been successfully running his own school for some time now), it's just that the Academy is a "traveling" school that moves from city to city. So, if you don't happen to reside in or live near one of its tour cities, then there's probably a good chance you haven't heard of it either.

That doesn't mean you can't take a quasi vacation road trip, to say - Los Angeles - and attend the WSOP Academy's next training session. That's right - taking place September 6-7 at the Bicycle Casino in La La Land (a place well known for it's serious poker action), this event will mark the first time the WSOP Academy has set up shop in Los Angeles. Two other "firsts" will be the addition of two new poker instructors. And when I say "instructor", I mean professional instructors. None other than Kenny Tran and Annie Duke will be joining the WSOP Academy's already impressive roster of instructors.

The two-day seminar covers everything from pot odds calculation and aggressive play to strategies, player position and tells (taught by none other than former FBI agent and poker player, Joe Navarro). They aren't going to teach you the standard poker hands, so if you don't know a lick about poker, you definitely want to learn the basics and then some before attending this class. Furthermore, the cost is no small chunk of change. $1,500 will get you in the door, which also includes a seat to a tournament after the first day of classes. The winner will not only win some extra prizes, but will also get a seat to a WSOP circuit event of their choice.

In my opinion, if you have the money to spare, are serious about competing in the WSOP and can manage a trip to Los Angeles, this is a two-day class worth your time and money. There are only 99 spots available, which guarantees some one-on-one training and attention, which from the likes of Tran and Duke, is nothing to scoff at. Put it this way - one of the Academy's grad's recently made it to the final table at the WSOP championship, just days after graduating a summer seminar. That should say something.
