Romania wins final World Cup of Poker live event spot

Team Romania has snagged its spot in the World Cup of Poker IV finals. Last Sunday, Teams Romania and Hungary played to a tie in the Division finals. Today, PokerStars hosted a heads-up match to decide which of the two teams would head to Barcelona. Team Romania's captain took a pass on the tie-breaker and put Tardeea in the chair to fight for his country's spot. He went head-to-head with Hungary's captain Belabacsi.

After a hard-fought match, Team Romania watched its player come out with the win. Now, Romania will join Teams Iceland, Mexico, Portugal, Canada, Germany, Ireland, and USA in Barcelona's live finals next month.
