WORLD CUP OF POKER IV WON BY U.S.A. TEAM


Captained by Greg Raymer, the Americans truimph

The Poker Stars.com World Cup of Poker IV championship in Barcelona has been decided, with the United States emerging as the top team and taking the main prize of $100 000.

Greg Raymer captained the victorious Americans in a final involving teams from the United States, Canada, Romania and Iceland (see previous InfoPowa reports).

But it wasn't all smooth sailing for the Yanks, who appeared to be in trouble in the early stages but recovered well. The Canadian team headed by Daniel Negreanu were the first to be bundled out of the final, leaving the US team of Raymer, Tyler Netter, Randy Principe, John Kenlan and Shaun Deeb to finish off the remaining two competing teams.

Romania finished second, sharing a prize of $60 000 among the four team members. Iceland was third and divvied up $40 000 whilst the Canadian four shared the fourth place prize of $20 000.
