Mercier and Lamb added to Caesars Cup line up

Thursday, 13 October 2011

The Team Americas skipper Phil Hellmuth has been forced to make a couple of amendments to his Caesars Cup team after the withdrawal of Doyle Brunson and Huck Seed.

Neither former Main Event will be playing in Cannes so Hellmuth has called up tournament winning machine Jason Mercier and current WSOP Player of the Year Ben Lamb. They join Johnny Chan, Daniel Negreanu and the Poker Brat himself who'll take on an ElkY led European team that features Jake Cody, Dario Minieri, Max Lykov and Gus Hansen.

The Ryder Cup style Caesars Cup takes place on Wednesday 19th October and will see the teams face off in a no-limit hold'em tournament that features both partner and heads-up formats with points awarded for different elements.
