Full Tilt College

by , Mar 5, 2009 | 3:13 am

Full Tilt just launched a new offering that they’re pretty proud of — the Full Tilt Poker Academy. It’s basically a copy of CardRunners Daniel Negreanu’s VT Poker University of Phoenix curriculum meets video games … with different Full Tilt pros giving video lessons on all sorts of really specific poker situations, like playing the bubble of a sit-n-go or using pause as a means of deception in 6-handed PLO against two medium stacks to your left and a short stack two to your right with the dog barking on a cloudy day. And then the pros give you little tasks to complete before you move to the next level.

I actually had something to do with this … seriously … if you happen to be watching the vids translated into Hungarian, Finnish, Czech, Polish, Mandarin Chinese, or about a dozen other languages … Flemish? that was me! Well not exactly … The only Polish I know is “dupa” (which is apparently not a very nice word), but our friends at Full Tilt did need my well-honed, advanced podcast production skills to properly line up the green graph thingies that represent sound. Ability to type was a plus.

Check it out, here. (You can watch the previews and change the languages with ease!)

    So the dog was barking on a CLOUDY day? I was hoping they’d teach on the sunny day scenario

    You have to change your background for that. Chris Ferguson goes over that part (seriously) on how to change your background, and which ones lead to optimal play.
