FOLLOWING A nine event qualification series, the American team is now in place as they prepare themselves for a December assault on the PartyPoker Mosconi Cup. Having last won the coveted transatlantic pool silverware in 2009, this year’s team comprises the top five players on the ranking list.
Shane Van Boening was the first to qualify after yet another stellar year but the remaining four spots came down the US Open. Mike Dechaine was the first to qualify and then shortly after it was Corey Deuel’s turn as he took some impressive scalps to garner sufficient points.
The two wild card slots went to Justin Bergman, who enjoyed an excellent season while the final spot saw captain Mark Wilson pick rookie Skyler Woodward to ensure a baptism of fire at the Tropicana next month.
