    Yes, you should definitely go. Infact, given the choice of the tournament or the Academy, choosing the latter wouldn't be a terrible decision.

    This is what happens when he doesn't shortstack. Still following the 0.0000000025% rule though.

    That hand is EPic.

    Mark Vos balling it up at the penny tables with "ONE MIRRRION DOLLAZZZ"

    If you were the dude with the nuts and quite possibly your entire bankroll all in, you would think he was totally break dancing after that hand!!

    Funny shit for sure.

    The Academy will be awesome. If you can come, I highly recommend it.

    I think they changed it, but initially the PLHE/PLO mix was uncapped like a regular limit table.

    Probably nobody else will lose over 100k BB in a hand

    Hi EDDYtheKID,

    It will be a combination of both Seminar and Q&A.

    For anyone trying to learn about the game, this is an awesome opportunity to some in and pick the brains of some of the best players in Australasia.

    I know myself and the Pro's are looking forward to speaking to the people at the FTP500. Im sure it will be an informative, relaxed and enjoyable seminar.
    I personally am looking forward to delivering some informative information on the Mental Game component and interacting with the crowd and the Pro's through out the night.

    Hope to see some of you PNWers there on Friday night!!
