WSOP to Offer Free Poker Lessons
11 World-Class Lectures to Benefit Charity
The World Series of Poker has announced that throughout summer 2011 the poker community is invited to participate in 11 free admission seminars from respected pros relating to different poker subject matters.
The WSOP has teamed with its official charities, the Prevent Cancer Foundation and the Nevada Cancer Institute, to offer the first annual Bad Beat Seminar Series featuring some of the greatest minds in the game sharing their personal insights, instruction and stories in hour-long sessions prior to the day’s WSOP play.
All 11 speakers are donating their time for these events, and the WSOP hopes that attendees will either consider a $20 donation, or agree to pledge one percent of their WSOP tournament winnings to benefit Bad Beat on Cancer.
All seminars will feature 45 minutes of lecture time and discussion, followed by 15 minutes of question and answer from the audience. These seminars will take place at 10:30 a.m. daily in the Brasilia Ballroom in the Rio Convention Center.
