WPT Boot Camp
I am asked all the time, "How can I improve my tournament play?" That question is now easily answered: "Attend a WPT Boot Camp!"
The WPT Boot Camp slogan is "your fast track to the final table," and it’s a fitting one.
From the beginning, when I first heard about WPT Boot Camp, I thought the idea was brilliant. And when I was asked about being an instructor for the first camp, I was immediately interested. They asked if I would assist in developing an intense two-day tournament course, teach a few WPT Boot Camps, and identify some great players to help teach other Boot Camps. I agreed.
I always explain to people that winning takes effort and that most poker players are like most golfers: They hate to practice, and just like to play. Poker players who are interested in investing in their own skills and improving their game in two intense, fun days will absolutely love the WPT Boot Camp experience.
We developed the tournament camp in such a way that students are taken through a progression of all aspects of the game. We do a lot of this through lab play, in which students are dealt cards and once they play their hands out, we analyze each player’s decisions, identifying what was right and wrong at every point. This is not only a great tool for learning and discussion, but quite entertaining, as well.
In the days following a WPT Boot Camp, the e-mails start flowing in. Students share their success stories and tell us examples of how they had used what was taught at the Camp to become totally different and much more highly-skilled players. Here are just a few of the many exciting testimonials that I’ve received:
Without getting into a play-by-play of the night, I will tell you that the Boot Camp was entirely instrumental in my game. I saw the table and players from a vastly different perspective. Understanding my position, the other players at the table, and the odds, I raised smartly and picked up plenty of pots. At times it felt like I was hovering over the table, in command and in view of everything that was going on. I've never felt like that at the poker table. This first time at the final table covered two-thirds of the cost of the Camp, a pretty dag gum good return on investment.

The bottom line is that WPT Boot Camp taught me how to dramatically improve my poker game in only two days. This instruction is already paying off; not only did I win my first tournament less than 24 hours after completing the WPT Boot Camp course, but I now enjoy playing poker more than ever before!

Before the WPT Boot Camp, I had been playing poker off and on for about five months. Since there are no casinos close to me, I've had to play online. In those five months, I've only won about $600. In the first week after the Camp, I won more than $5,000. Needless to say, the Boot Camp has already paid for itself. My enthusiasm and confidence for the game have greatly increased, and that's not the result of just the money. I now feel I have a much better understanding of the intricacies of the game. I now read any poker book I can get my hands on. Anybody who enjoys poker owes it to himself to attend the Boot Camp. He will come out with a greater enjoyment of the game, and winning more money doesn't hurt, either. Had a great time. Thanks again.

This is typical of the feedback we receive after every WPT Boot Camp. I have no doubt, and look forward to the day, that I will look out to the final table of a WPT event and ask myself, "Where do I know that player from?" And then it will hit me – he was a student at a WPT Boot Camp!
I really enjoy helping enthusiastic players improve their game. I look forward to teaching more WPT Boot Camps and helping poker players everywhere begin their "fast track to the final table."
