    World Cup of Poker IX

    Represent Your Country in Poker’s World Cup!

    The World Cup of Poker (WCP) is the event where you get to represent your homeland in one of the biggest events anywhere online. What’s more, countries that advance from the group stages get to go to the live final - held as part of the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) in The Bahamas. It’s about bragging rights, national pride, and proving that you are the best - and you can take part now.

    How to Qualify for WCP IX

    Stage 1: Team Selection

    The action starts online, where 72 national teams will battle for the chance to make it to the PCA. Countries have been split into eight regional groups, with nine countries in each one.

    Play for your country in any of the four $2.20 heads-up No Limit Hold’em Super Knockout tournaments and aim to finish as high as possible each time. Your country’s score for each tourney will be the highest individual cash by any player from that nation. After all tourneys have played out, each country will be ranked in their group based on their combined best finishes across the four tourneys. The country that tops their group will advance to the live final in The Bahamas! It’s a format that will favor the country that enters the most players, so be sure to tell as many of your countrymen as possible!

    See the WCP Qualifiers page for times
    and dates for your national team.

    Stage 2: Player Selection

    With eight national teams now though to the live final, it’s time to decide which four players get to represent them. This will be decided via free-to-play and cash qualifiers taking place on August 26 - see the Qualifiers page for times and buy-ins.

    Each four-man team will then head off to the PCA in January 2013 to play the live final. Each team will also be assigned a pro player as their Captain, including members of Team PokerStars Pro and Team Online.

    Full details of the live final at the 2013 PCA will be announced shortly - check back soon for more.
