Bootcamps are held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Townsville, where we will hold a 2 or more days of poker coaching and training for players who want that edge leading up to the big events such as WSOP Circuit, WPT Prime, APLPT and APT.

Coaches will discuss stages of the tournaments, body language, mindset and how strategy and play varies throughout each stage.  Look at grinding the short stack and how to build the stamina to ‘grind it out’.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions of coaches who have been through it all and who have made it to those elusive final tables. Coaches include WSOP Circuit Ring winner, Poker Coach and trainer Brendon Rubie and Maddocks Mindset founder and director, trained NLP coach Mike Maddocks.
