The Perfect Holiday Gift for a Poker Enthusiast

The Poker Camp's Final Table Seminar -- A Poker Getaway Weekend

by Dylan Simpson

Poker is in the air and on the airwaves. From ESPN for WSOP or the World Poker Tour (WPT) on the Travel Channel to celebrity poker and interactive poker computer games, poker is gaining recognition across the nation. With the holiday season quickly approaching, friends and spouses of poker players can rest easy with a gift every poker player will certainly use: The Poker Camp's Final Table weekend getaway seminar.

The Final Table seminar, hosted at Jackson Rancheria Jan. 29-30, focuses on No Limit Texas Hold'em and covers basic and advanced skills and betting strategies. The seminar is a unique two day weekend getaway that includes lodging, meals, poker workshops, practice and a tournament with cash prizes. Featured speakers include Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari, $1.5 million winner of World Poker Tour events and Lee Jones, author of "Winning Low Limit Hold'em" to reveal their winning secrets of poker.

Dedicated to the education of poker players, The Poker Camp aims to increase the poker enthusiast's skills and enjoyment of tournament poker through educational seminars while increasing the opportunity to make it to the final table. "It's exciting to be able to work with champions such as Antonio Esfandiari and Lee Jones for our debut seminar," says Dylan Simpson, co-founder of The Poker Camp. "They'll add a level of enrichment to the seminar that will make it exciting to every participant. And since the first seminar is offered in January at the Jackson Rancheria, a weekend getaway combined with poker stars makes the perfect gift idea."
