One and Two Day Boot Camps

Bootcamps run twice per year.

Get a head start on the upcoming big tournaments

Do you want to hone your skills before the big tournaments like WSOP, APLPT, APT and WPT. 


Bootcamps are held on demand in Brisbane, Sydney, Goldcoast and Townsville, where we will hold 1 or 2 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 may include teacher and founder of JDub Poker Janet Wyvill and Maddocks Mindset founder and director, trained NLP coach Mike Maddocks and/or Corey Van J from Implied Odds. Coaches are dependant on their availability.

Book early for these bootcamps and with very limited places they will fill up quickly.

Participants will also have the opportunity to play a game and receive coaching feedback at a follow up session.
