WCP IX - Country Qualifiers

How to Qualify for WCP IX

Stage 1 - Team Selection

The competition begins by deciding which eight teams will travel to The Bahamas for the live finals at the 2013 PCA. This will be decided by splitting the 72 competing nations into eight equal groups.

Each group will then play four $2.20 heads-up No Limit Hold'em Super Knockout tournaments. Each country will receive a score that is equal to their highest individual cash in each tournament. The team that has the best combined score across all four tournaments will win their group. Dates, times and countries for each group are listed below. To find the tournaments and register, open the PokerStars lobby and go to 'Tourney' > 'Regional'.
