It will be case of youth versus experience in this year's Caesars Cup as Elky's European young guns take on a veteran Americas line up that boasts no fewer than 39 WSOP bracelets.
The European team, captained by Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, comprises triple crown winner Jake Cody, Danish high stakes legend Gus Hansen, Italian Team PokerStars Pro Dario Minieri and former EPT Kiev winner Maxim Lykov. With an average age of just 27 they may lack the experience of their North American counterparts but there will be no shortage of confidence.Team America captain Phil Hellmuth has opted for an extremely experienced team that features the top three WSOP bracelet winners of all time. Joining the Poker Brat will be double WSOP Main Event winners Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan, 1996 World Champ Huck Seed and double WPT winner and WSOPE main event runner up Daniel Negreanu."These idiot Northern Europeans think they know everything about the game of poker," joked Hellmuth. "Well, we plan to show them that decades of experience are much more valuable than clicking a mouse while sitting in your pajamas. In all seriousness, we look forward to the challenge and the opportunity to return the Caesars Cup to American soil." Battle commences on Wednesday 19th October when the two teams will compete in a no-limit hold'em tournament that will feature both partner and heads-up formats with points awarded for different elements.
