PokerStars just announced the upcoming launch of its first ever PokerStars Pro Poker Camp, to be hosted by Team PokerStars Pro (and current 2008 WSOP Main Event hopeful) Greg Raymer. PokerStars is running two daily Satellites awarding up to 60 seats in the PokerStars Pro Poker Camp, to take place later this year.
The PokerStars Pro Poker Camp will cover every aspect of live tournament play, from the basics and structure of live tournaments, to gaining the confidence to go the distance. Of course, the main goal is to win the tournament, but finishing in the money is the first priority. Slow clock tournaments, like that of the WSOP and EPT, will also be covered in great detail.
Satellites to the PokerStars Pro Poker Camp occur twice daily. At 11:30am E, players can enter the first PokerStars Pro Poker Camp Satellite for $46.50. Then again at 1:30pm ET, another PokerStars Pro Poker Camp Satellite is hosted for $425. Winners can earn a seat in the PokerStars Pro Poker Camp Finals, to be held July 20th, 2008.
The top finishers in the Finals are awarded a $4,000 prize package to the Poker Stars Pro Poker Camp, to launch in Barcelona, Spain at the European Poker Tour. 60 PokerStars Pro Poker Camp participants will take place in a tournament, in which two players will win a $16,700 prize package that includes a seat in the EPT Barcelona Main Event.
If you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t win yourself a trip to the PokerStars Pro Poker Camp, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t worry Ã¢â‚¬â€œ thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s plenty of daily satellites and qualifiers at PokerStars, starting as low as a few poker points or a few bucks, awarding seats in all events along the European Poker Tour.
