Caesars Cup Teams get Brunson, Antonius, Zigmund and Harman

Tuesday, 1 September 2009

The Caesars Cup, a Europe vs Americas poker tournament to be played in the style of golf’s Ryder Cup at the Betfair-sponsored World Series of Poker Europe 2010, has added more big names to the line-up.

PokerStars pro and Americas captain Daniel Negreanu had already picked Phil Ivey for his team while European captain Annette Obrestad picked his fellow PokerStars team member, 2008 WSOP champion Peter Eastgate. Recently, UltimateBet leader Phil Hellmuth and Full Tilt pro John Juanda were added to the America side while Obrestad plumped for Dario Minieri and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier.

Now Negreanu has added more big names, with ten-time WSOP bracelet-winner Doyle Brunson joining the show alongside Limit Hold ‘em specialist and Big Game regular Jennifer Harman. Obrestad has responded by including Finns Patrik Antonius and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies to her side.

The Caesars Cup takes place on Friday, September 25 at 10:00 AM at the Casino at the Empire in London’s famed Leicester Square as part of World Series of Poker Europe Presented by Betfair.
