The World Series of Poker (WSOP) academy will feature some new faces among the teachers this month.

Professor Charley Swayne, an expert in poker probability and statistics will be in attendance for the first time.

The professor will be joined by Sam Chauhan, who is a motivational speaker who will provide attendees with teachings about the "optimal poker mindset", according to Bluff magazine.

Regular speakers and teachers, such as Phil Gordon, Mark Seif and Paul Wasicka will talk at the first event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on November 7th and 8th.

This is just two days before the final table of the WSOP is due to take place in the gambling hub.

Jeff Goldenberg, of Post Oak Productions, which produces the WSOP academy, commented: "Our WSOP Academy events this November will feature some of the biggest names in poker sharing their secrets and strategies."

Annie Duke is another poker pro who shares her expertise at the WSOP academy. She has one WSOP bracelet and has cashed in the series on 34 occasions.
