It's WSOP season once again and the bright lights of Vegas are beckoning as players look to win a golden ticket to the biggest event of the year.
But like many, you may find yourself bemused and bewildered by the array of choices available and unsure as to the optimal path to securing your seat.
Don't fear, as help is at hand.
On Saturday, May 26, Black Belt Poker will be returning to Aspers Casino, Stratford for its latest Academy: WSOP: Winning Your Seat & Surviving Vegas.
The time around, attendees will be treated to a wealth of experience and knowledge courtesy of our trio of mentors: Alex Rousso, Neil Channing and Blue Belt Jamie Burland, all of whom have attended the WSOP on multiple occasions.
Although the main focus of the day will be on satellites, other topics will be covered including Main Event strategy and tips on surviving Vegas. There will also be an optional last-longer for attendees in Asper's £50 freezeout with the last man or woman standing winning a free seat into a future Academy.
