Scotty’s Boot Camp: This was one of the best days in my life! [Guest blogger]

Friday, May 28th, 2010

[Örjan Knutsson from Sweden won a full $10,000 Scotty’s Boot Camp package going to Las Vegas with Scotty Nguyen and playing in the WSOP. Scotty’s Boot Camp is being held in Las Vegas between 25-27th May.]


It was poker from morning until night on Wednesday and I picked up so much from Scotty and the instructor Alex. We started with chip stacks relevant to WSOP events and did a few hours of poker hands with a WSOP event profile. We analyzed hand selections, bet analyze, raise and re-raise, patterns, situational plays and reading hand quality at the table. Scotty gave us tournament strategy and filled in with tips all the time and special anecdotes from his long career.


The video session after lunch was great. Scotty showed situations from his most famous tournaments where he put in some tricks and overall view on choices. We got scenario based training with decisions and pre-flop and stack analyzes. It was very hands-on and we sat there all day like students eager to learn more.


We got specific situations to solve at the table and in the afternoon we were so filled with poker impressions that we needed a four hour siesta before we headed to the dinner and then a nightclub where we partyed till the early hours. This was one of the best days in my life!
