Cash-game poker players have a chance to get a leg (or hand, as it were) up on the competition this coming weekend at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City.

The bayside gaming hall is hosting the first World Series of Poker Academy cash-game seminar for players looking to upgrade their games.

The two-day program will feature poker experts--among them Mark Seif and Paul Wasicka--offering instruction in such aspects of the game as how to "read" opponents, how to determine the range of hands they may hold against you, and bankroll management. There will also be a Cash Game Competition whose grand prize is an all-expense-paid trip to Caesars Palace Las Vegas and a seat at the WSOP Academy Tournament of Champions which will take place just prior to the Main Event of the 2009 World Series of Poker.

Tuition for the sessions, which commence 10 a.m. Saturday, is $1,899, with $499.75 due up front and the balance paid in three monthly installments. For information and registration go to http://www.wsopacademy.com/schedule/january-24-25-harrahs-atlantic-city.html.

Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
