PokerGo is bidding to become more than the home of high-stakes entertainment by venturing into the training side of the industry.
The poker media company has just announced a new partnership with the training site Solve for Why. The deal not only adds to PokerGo’s list of services, but will give players the chance to up their games in time for the WSOP.
PokerGo helping players solve the game
Per a press release announcing the partnership, Solve for Why will become the “exclusive training site” of PokerGo for the 2021 WSOP. In addition to “multiple strategic integrations,” the two companies will run a $10,000 seat giveaway for the 2022 WSOP Main Event.
People who join the email lists for PokerGo and Solve for Why will be entered into the prize draw. They’ll also be given a heads-up when the first batch of collaborative training content is released.
Helping players improve their poker skills is the reason Matt Berkey created Solve For Why. The American pro is a regular in PokerGo events. His biggest score to date is a fifth-place finish in the 2016 Super High Roller Bowl worth $1.1 million. One of his main aims is to help players make “efficient and profitable decisions” in the live arena.
This ties in with PokerGo’s products and content, including the recently launched PokerGo Tour. The annual series not only features high-roller events costing $25,000+, but a Player of the Year title sponsored by Guaranteed Rate.
Solve for Why brings something extra to PokerGo
Those who take advantage of PokerGo’s new partnership with Solve for Why might not climb to the heady heights of $25,000+ high-roller events overnight. However, there will be a focus on helping amateurs rise up the ranks through a combination of training videos, live meet and greets, and giveaways.
The first port of call for representatives of PokerGo and Solve for Why will be at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, where they’ll be hosting a co-branded booth at the WSOP and giving players the chance to meet the coaches, learn more about the training content, and enter the $10,000 seat giveaway.
