2006 PokerStars World Cup of Poker

The PokerStars World Cup of Poker is a worldwide competition between national teams of poker players that pits team versus team and country versus country. You can be among players from all around the world who compete for national pride, bragging rights, and $200,000. Visit the 2006 World Cup of Poker page for more information.

State and province World Cup of Poker qualifiers for the Team USA and Team Canada begin this weekend.

Last year (and, yeah, the year before that), Team Costa Rica won the World Cup of Poker title in startling back-to-back fashion. To read more about Team Costa Rica's World Cup of Poker victory, check out the report from last year's event.

Oh, and in case you didn't hear, it looks like this year's live finals are going to be a summer event in Barcelona, Spain. That wouldn't be a bad vacation, now would it?
