Ferguson is prized for his 2008 win of the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship and the Main Event Winner in 2000. Ferguson is a mathematical genius and is without doubt a very strong member of Team USA.
Harman steps up to represent the all-American women and is the only woman who has consistently played and done well in the highest-stakes live game, running regularly at The Bellagio. Harman holds 2 WSOP bracelets and has contributed to classic poker instruction books as well.
America has its comical characters as well, which team USA personifies through the inclusion of Mike “The Mouth” Matusow. Matusow is notorious for his table talk, which is typically pretty out-of-this-world and entertaining to say the least. The 2005 WSOP Tournament of Champions title went to Matusow and he also holds 3 WSOP bracelets.
Erik Seidel is the final member making up Team USA. Sdidel also has under his belt that he was the champion of the World Poker Tour Foxwoods Championship and is included in the top five on the all-time poker money list. Due to the fact that Seidel has a total of 8 WSOP bracelets he will by no means be a force to be taken lightly.
During the event, Team USA will face a number of International talents including China, Australia, Vietnam, England, Brazil and Greece. The World Team Poker Event will feature eight different countries, each of which will call forth five-man teams. The captains of the teams will be allowed to call for substitutions during the event, adding an extra element of suspense and team strategy.
Surely, an event not to be missed- only time will tell if Team USA can pull it off and bring home that American Dream.
Everyone knows that with teamwork many amazing feats can be accomplished that one could never pull off alone; but did you know that there is a rakeback team out there waiting for you to join them? Opting in can bring big rakeback benefits to you and either your small group of poker buddies, fellow associates or even arch nemeses.
