NEGREANU'S VIRTUAL POKER COACHING
International ace passes on his knowledge
International poker pro Daniel Negreanu reveals the secrets that have led to his $10 million in tournament winnings this week with the launch of his interactive virtual training platform at PokerVT.com.
Publicity material promises that the poker ace will unveil his "Small Ball" strategy and open the rest of his Texas Hold'em playbook for the world to see.
"For years, people have been asking me about Small Ball and my various cash game strategies," Negreanu says. "I was just waiting for the perfect place to share with everyone, and at PokerVT.com, I can comfortably say that we have set the bar for training sites at an all time high with our depth of content and cutting edge technology."
Negreanu claims that Poker VT is the first poker training platform of its kind. It combines one-on-one virtual lessons with Negreanu and other poker experts; a proprietary virtual training system and ongoing testing so users can track their progress and improvement over time.
The website is powered by LightSpeed VT, a Las Vegas-based company that invented the proprietary technology that makes the training and testing possible. LightSpeed has previously worked with global clients such as EBay, Gold's Gym and General Motors.
"There's a natural affinity between our technological capabilities and the immense brand cachet of Daniel Negreanu," said LightSpeed VT CEO Brad Lea. "Daniel provides his vast poker knowledge and charismatic personality, and we package his poker genius into an exciting, engaging user experience."
The Poker VT training includes a math course by stats guru, Professor Charley Swayne, who has taught seminars on statistics and probability all over the country. And in recognition of the exploding trend of online poker training, such stars as Paul Wasicka, Adam Junglen, JC Alvarado, BooostedJ and tournament poker's female phenom, Annette_15 have been included.
"This is the best instructional product I have ever seen," added Negreanu. "Wait until you see how we used headphones to capture the real-time thoughts of pros and amateurs during actual games, and then watch me go back and analyze their plays and thoughts."
Two additional features are the interactive games like D's Nuts where users can practice and drill until they are able to quickly identify the first, second and third "nuts", and the N-SPAT, a comprehensive test that measures the user's understanding of the poker math and Negreanu lessons.
All told, Poker VT offers more than 300 interactive training modules at launch and will add new training material regularly.
Poker VT will be available on a membership basis, 24-hours a day, seven days a week, on any computer that meets minimum technological requirements and is connected to the Internet
