Poker players will be given a chance to learn directly from poker pros when the Rio presents Power Poker Seminars hosted by Doyle Brunson and Mike Caro, and the two have announced that they will waive the $95 entry fee.
Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson is a record-breaking professional poker player boasting 10 WSOP bracelets and is a member of the Poker Hall of Fame. Brunson began playing poker in college and not until he was a salesman did the thought of playing for a living cross his mind. On his first day of work he won a month's wages in three short hours. Throughout three decades Brunson has maintained his reputation as the world's greatest poker player.
Mike Caro, also known as "The Mad Genius of Poker" is the leading authority on poker strategy, psychology and statistics. A respected odds maker and highly regarded poker professional, Brunson calls him, "the finest draw player alive." Caro founded the Mike Caro University of Poker, Gaming and Life Strategy in 1998 where he is the head instructor.
The seminars will take place at Pavilion 9 inside the Rio convention area at 3700 West Flamingo Road and are scheduled during the weeks leading up to the Main Event in an effort to better prepare poker players for the world's biggest tournament and each seminar will include a question and answer session with Doyle Brunson.
