World Series Of Poker And Bad Beat On Cancer Team Up For Free Poker Seminars During WSOP

Throughout the 2011 World Series of Poker (WSOP), the poker community is invited to participate in eleven unique 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. The hope is attendees will either consider a $20 donation to the Bad Beat on Cancer, or agree to pledge 1% of their WSOP tournament winnings to benefit Bad Beat on Cancer, with 100% of their donations being tax-deductible.

All seminars will feature 45 minutes of lecture time/discussion, followed by 15 minutes of interactive Q & A from the audience. These seminars will take place at 10:30 AM daily in the Brasilia Ballroom in the Rio Convention Center, directly adjacent to the tournament rooms where the WSOP is being played.

The inaugural 2011 lineup features the two leading WSOP bracelet winners in history, a pair of prolific high stakes cash game players, two of the most successful women in the game and several other unique poker personalities. The entire schedule follows:
