Fitzwilliam Cash Game Poker AcademyAll you ever wanted to know about Cash Poker, but were afraid to ask… Cash games can be daunting to players more familiar with playing in poker tournaments. However with a little bit of study and dedication many poker players find cash poker more interesting and profitable than tournament play. To help bridge this gap, the Fitzwilliam are providing an opportunity to learn the basics of successful cash game play from proven cash game winner, Daragh Thomas. Daragh made a professional living from cash game poker for 8 years with only one losing month in that period. He also wrote a monthly strategy article for Card Player magazine and was involved in an online poker coaching site. Over the course of 2 weeks from 11th August on Monday and Wednesday evenings, Daragh will host 4 one-hour seminars to share his knowledge and insights into successful cash game play. These seminars are free to attend and open to all members of the Fitzwilliam. To book a place, simply email your details to email@example.com before Monday 11th August or register directly at the Poker Desk in the Club. Seminar Details:
- Monday 11th August, 6:00pm, Seminar 1 Introduction, lesson plan, broad concepts of cash game play.
