Preparing For Your Next Tournament

by , Jun 12, 2007 | 11:44 am

LAS VEGAS–The WSOP Academy hosted their first All Ladies Camp at Caesar’s Palace this past weekend. A sold out crowd of 100 women listened, played and learned from Annie Duke, Karina Jett, funny man Alex Outhred, Joe Navarro and even a surprise visit from the very sexy Jennicide. There was a vast range in players either looking to learn the basics or sharpen their skills and all seemed to benefit from Navarro’s body language seminar. I know I advanced in some areas (although it didn’t seem possible since I’m the 6,432,243,328 smartest person in the world). In fact, immediately following the Academy I entered the ladies WSOP event and focused on my game like a turkey dodging Thanksgiving. Seriously, I used Navarro’s tells to read, Karina’s advice on flirting, Annie’s reminder’s of the math and Alex’s words of wisdom on staying focused.

I would have posted on this yesterday but I was busy cashing in the WSOP thanks to this camp’s wonderful reminders.

Upcoming camps during the World Series will not only include Joe Navarro but also main event winners Greg Raymer, Joe Hachem and WSOP Master Phil Hellmuth with a private tournament for a 10k main event seat, VIP Party at Pure Nightclub and banquet.

    Nice to see the winner also took the course… I watched it last night on Wow, was that difficult to watch… Went something like this…

    Fold, fold, raise, fold, fold fold…
    Fold, fold, fold,raise fold fold…
    Fold, fold, fold, raise, fold…
    Fold, fold, raise, fold fold fold…

    Was almost like watching paint dry, no offense to the ladies.

    I actually fell a sleep watching it and when I work up at 4am, laptop next to me on the bed, it was over. Looks like it got exciting at the end there. All-in all-in all-in…

    I was 100% sure Katja Thater would take it down, wrong again!

    Thanks Venita! I was in the zone for sure on Sunday.

    The final table was not the most popular. Lot’s of people were complaining about the same thing. I swear I was seeing 15 hands per hour Sunday night, I was dying!
