Sky Poker Celebrates First Birthday; Announces Boot Camp Classes and Line Up

Sky Poker is celebrating its first birthday.

One year ago Sky Poker simultaneously launched On Air on Sky Channel 846 and Online at www.skypoker.com <http://www.skypoker.com/> . One year on Sky Poker’s mix of entertainment and education has made it one of the top destinations for experienced poker players and newcomers alike.

Over the past 12 months Sky Poker has introduced new tournaments, new programming and huge prize funds. It also won industry accolades such as Gambling Online Magazine’s Gold Award for the ‘Top Innovation in Online Gaming’ and bronze award for ‘Best Poker Tournaments’.

Sky Poker is taking its tradition of education to new levels with its first Boot Camp, which takes place in Bristol on the weekend of the 8th and 9th of March.

Sky Poker can now reveal the topics that will be covered at the Boot Camp, which is strictly limited to 60 players only to ensure everyone receives plenty of personal attention from the Sky Poker personalities instructing the course.

Saturday will feature an introduction to Boot Camp from Sky Poker presenters Matt Broughton and Nick Wealthall. Matt will also cover table position and live play etiquette with Nick covering hand reading and cash games. Sky Poker’s Kara Scott will also will be on hand to help students throughout the course and also lead a session on tells.

Sunday will see Nick discuss short handed and heads up play as well as a session on table presence and another about online play. Matt will be joined by Tony ‘Tikay’
Kendall in a session on bankroll management, followed by tales of being a poker pro from Tikay himself.

Other familiar faces from Sky Poker are also planning to attend the Boot Camp ensuring a very high concentration of experienced poker players, all in one place for the students to benefit from.

More details of the syllabus are available at www.skypoker.com <http://www.skypoker.com/> , where players can also play satellites to qualify for the Boot Camp. Alternatively players can pay £250 directly to attend the Boot Camp – a fee which includes accommodation, meals, refreshments and entry into the Saturday evening tournament.
