For the first time ever, two of the game’s brightest minds will be divulging upon intracacies which have won them countless millions. Tom “durrr” Dwan and Patrick Antonious, two of internet poker’s brightest luminaries, will be giving one-on-one lessons for charity thanks to the initiative of Brandon Adams. Part Harvard professor, part poker professional, and now a smidgen philanthropist, Adams is success incarnate. The genius’ latest personal venture, www.expertinsight.com, makes high-speed audio-video teleconferencing technology available a site with world-reknowned virtuosos and Nobel Prize winners across a variety of fields, and is launching with the April 18th Antonius lesson. (Dwan’s comes a day later on the 19th.)
“Having Patrik and Tom available to the poker community is clearly a great resource, and I’m very curious to see what their initial hours of coaching will go for,” Adams said. “Tom is simply the most innovative mind in poker, and many of the best poker players of his (or any) generation have publicly credited him as being the leading influence in their poker development. Tom is exceptionally quick, and I think he’ll pack a lot of insight into a typical one hour session.”
“Patrik is probably the second biggest winner in poker over the last decade,” Adams continued. “At one point, he was the biggest winner in every major game type.”
A majority of the proceeds will go to benefit the Morris Jeff Community School in New Orleans, an open-access public school helping educate and instill a sense of awareness into the local youths. According to a post yesterday on Adams’ Twitter account (the only way to bid on these one-of-a-kind offers):
“new bid for @patrik_antonius. $3200. @Tom_Dwan is at $3k.”
At the price it costs some people before they even see a return on a poker deposit, these might actually be viable options.
