World Cup of Poker meets WSOP

It's only been a few weeks since I sat on the River Thames with some of the world's greatest poker players for a taping of the PokerStars.com World Cup of Poker. Since then, I've slipped into a rhythm here at the World Series of Poker. Somehow, things haven't changed a great deal. In just the past few days, I've seen Team Norway's Anders Berg and Team Costa Rica's Terrence Chan and Alex Brenes.

Today, we see another World Cup of Poker player at the WSOP. This one has made a final table.

Sigi Stockinger of Team Austria is competing against some of the biggest names in poker. Hellmuth, Ivey, Williamson. Sunar. The event was an expensive one. $5000 Pot-Limit Omaha with rebuys. At this writing, Stockinger is still alive with eight players remaining at the final table [Update: Sigi took sixth place.]

The rest of the room is full of players. The $5000 Limit Event is in its second day. A $2000 No Limit Hold'em event began today. The week is starting to get rolling here. It all leads up to the Main Event which begins in one week.

Keep it here for all your PokerStars player updates.
