Zen Poker Teams with World Series of Poker to Create WSOP School of Poker
Since its launch early last year, Zen Poker Mentoring has established itself as the
premiere live coaching program in the world. The brainchild of poker pro poker Brian
Rast and industry veteran Arthur “Ace”MacFarland, Zen Poker was designed as a proof
of concept to show the community that a live school of poker was still a viable entity.
In a world of poker lessons being taught via Skype, Twitch, and webinars, the WSOP
School of Poker will keep things traditional by offering face-to- face LIVE training from a
rotating cast of poker pros and bracelet winners.
Among the pros involved with Zen Poker in the past, and who very well may be involved
in future WSOP School of Poker seminars, are four-time WSOP bracelet winner Jeff
Madsen; poker pro and reality TV star Vanessa Rousso; Senior Event champ Dan
Heimiller; 1983 Main Event champion Tom McEvoy; manager of the Global Poker
League L.A. Sunset, Maria Ho; and Poker Hall of Famer Jen Harman, among others.
It was our dream to own a poker training school, and that was brought to life with Zen Poker Mentoring, was welcomed in the poker community thus a success ; adds MacFarland. “However, by joining forces with the WSOP and re-branding as the WSOP School of Poker gives us the opportunity to advance poker to an even larger community and to assist players in their journey to become a WSOP champion.
