Russia wins World Cup of Poker
Captained by Team PokerStars Pro Ivan Demidov, Russia was crowned World Cup of Poker Champions at the Live Final at Atlantis in The Bahamas. After two days of intense action at the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Team Russia lifted the trophy as well as scooping $90,000 in prize money ($22,500 per player). Germany finished in runner-up spot and Tajikistan took a hard-earned third place.
