Those running the World Series of Poker really are bright people. Not only do they have this entity that attracts $10,000 buy in's to play but they now have Poker Schools.

These schools make a profit and turn more people on to playing poker which in turn brings more people to play in the tournaments and to watch the tv shows!

What a great business!

What's your view of it?

When to Hold Em, and When to Go to Poker School - As more people take up poker as a hobby, the two camps are hot commodities. Combined, the schools have offered nearly 40 camps since January, and nearly every one of them has been sold out.

Tuition for these experiences isnt cheap, generally ranging from $1,695 to $4,300. But Jeffrey Pollack, commissioner of the World Series of Poker, says that for people who are serious enough about poker to take a class, the money is a stake in the future.

For those players thinking about playing in events where the buy-in, or cost of entry, is $5,000 or $10,000, Mr. Pollack said that a couple thousand dollars for valuable instruction is almost like an insurance policy, noting that both schools offer classes in a variety of poker games.
