Steve Berman, Co-founder of the WPT Boot Camp says, "Mike, Vince and Alex have all played the game of poker and been witness to the skills of top players worldwide. Together they will provide the kind of coaching necessary to help amateur poker players reach and succeed at a WPT Final Table. They will be instrumental in selecting additional quality instructors for WPT BOOT CAMP."
