World Poker Tour commentators Mike Sexton and Vincent Van Patten, as well as the smash hit television show's associate producer, Alex 'The Insider' Outhred, have been named as the first three instructors for the WPT boot camp designed to provide enrollees a 'Fast Track to the Final Table'.
Sexton and Van Patten have been key to the success of the WPT show on the Travel Channel that spawned the nation's poker boom. Their experience, knowledge of the game, and insightful way of explaining the action to everyone from neophyte to journeyman players has laid the foundation for the boot camp and inspired people worldwide to seek greater skills in the game.
Each of the three possesses incredible insight into the inner workings of WPT tournaments, which will be used as the basis for instruction. Steven Berman, co-founder of the boot camp, believes the combined experience of the three individuals establishes a solid instructional core for the program.
'Mike, Vince and Alex have all played the game of poker and been witness to the skills of top players worldwide,' Berman said. 'Together they will provide the kind of coaching necessary to help amateur poker players reach and succeed at a WPT Final Table. They will be instrumental in selecting additional quality instructors for WPT boot camp.'
WPT boot camp is designed to compress the poker learning curve into just two days and employs an authentic instructional experience endorsed by the WPT. It will be offered in cities throughout the United States and features an integrated curriculum that includes live lectures, archived WPT video, hand-on game play, and personal tips by poker superstars. Only 50 students are accepted per camp session to ensure a maximized learning experience.
