You've won an all-expenses-paid ticket to a poker skills boot camp, but there's a catch....

Where is the location of the boot camp - on Mars...
What are the details of the accommodations - hitchhiking the way back...

I think the location would have to be in a war zone or anywhere where human rights are not respected.

In countries that exploit workers, displace peoples, destroy natural areas or act at the expense of environmental protection to create boot camp accommodation, my decision would be to throw away the ticket and not attend the event.

Another reason would be if physical well-being (physical integrity) is not guaranteed. It is disproportionate to risk your own safety and protection of health.

In an unhealthy forest with malaria-carrying mosquitoes.
The games will take place in a wooden cabin in the forest, located on the edge of a river, which will be the place to bathe and satisfy your needs.
To spend the night, a camp with several hammocks tied between trees and a simple fire in the middle, without access to insect repellent.

Frankly I would love to travel to any country of the world that isn't at war.
But maybe I could avoid Iceland and its endless nights in winter.

It would be nice in a train set to run throughout the tournament, each car with a poker table. How to close a table to be left in the first station with eliminated players. The breaks should be longer to enjoy the culinary diversity of the transit areas, massages, thermal baths, etc. The final meal in an enormous cave where you can hear the echo of chips dragged from a other side of the table.......🤔

I would throw away the ticket if the camp was in the basement or somewhere where it is hot or cold or there is no civilization where it is dirty where it is not cozy if there are not friendly people there if it seems to me that it is not safe there if it is not pleasant to feed there like this

If there is no normal food, water, or sanitary conditions in this camp, then I will definitely refuse to participate. If this course lasted there for 5 or 7 days, then maybe I could, but 90 days is too long.

The boot camp is in Dodgy City and the top pros are the Clancy Brothers.
The accommodation is quite basic, you share your room with cockroaches and bedbugs.
Dinner every day seems to be Ratatouille.
If anyone can survive a 90 day boot camp there you will be taken somewhere but I am
not sure your poker will be at the next level.....

I will not accept a place without a minimum of favorable conditions to be comfortable, for example: a comfortable bed, a shower, hygiene...).

I definitely need good conditions, especially if we are talking about 90 days. I am very particular about my own comfort and am not ready to make sacrifices even for such good prospects. But in order to give an unequivocal answer, I need to understand exactly what conditions we are talking about. For example, if I don't have my own bathroom in this camp, I will definitely refuse to participate :)

If it wasn't in a war zone or a radioactive one, I would go anywhere. Joking aside, I think I could fit in anywhere as long as my integrity is secured, I could easily get out of my comfort zone because the goal is not to go on vacation to feel comfortable but a unique chance that you may not meet a second time to learn poker from the best in the world.

I would throw the ticket away if I was staying next to my ex place, Enough negative yells already, I need peace :) But on the other side, I could rub in her face the money I would win....

Nah! Not worth my peace of mind...

Such a horrible place can only be underground. Where children under one year old are roasted and served with potatoes for lunch instead of chicken. Where human blood is drunk instead of wine. Where the masonic circle leads. I wouldn't go there.

My answer will be short and simple: russia, even if I get paid for this with a lot of money and get 5 stars hotel, no thanks. I think no explanation needed

A prison cell. 90 days with one person. Contact with the rest of the world is limited to having two meals a day slid through your door and passing your shared bucket of excretions out.

I am a military man. I was at war. For months, I was in such conditions, which you rarely see even in the movies. The only condition that I know for sure is necessary is the presence of clean drinking water and reserves of some canned food. Without clean water supplies, I don't think any of the participants would be willing to participate.

I would have to have a very shabby place with very little security for my integrity and with little health... for me to miss an opportunity like this

If there is no normal food, clean water or internet connection in this camp, then without me :)
