Want to be part of the 2014 WSOP? The WSOP has decided to discontinue their dealer training for the upcoming 2014 WSOP but Tony Shelton Dealing School offers their graduates the opportunity to deal at the World Series of Poker Rio annually during the seven week event. Many events are televised on ESPN and this is a terrific opportunity to expose your talent and expertise in the world of poker dealing. Dealers may also choose to deal at the Venetian Deep Stack, the Golden Nugget, or Binions, all during the 2014 WSOP. You will be taught 16 variations of poker necessary to deal all games offered at the WSOP. Training is also available for blackjack plus carnival games, (3-Card Poker, Pai Gow and Caribbean Stud). The school is a proud member of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce and is a post secondary education institution. Much more than just a dealing school with 30 years of WSOP experience and a combined 60 years of teaching experience, Tony Shelton, James Kean, and John Kulig provide hands on instruction to their students. The school is located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas in a space that houses four casino style poker tables, casino weight poker chips, and poker quality cards. Credit cards are accepted and financial aid is available. Visit www.TonysPokerSchool.com or clip the ad in this issue of Poker Player Newspaper to receive a 10% discount.
