888poker ran an "8-Team" competition during this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event. Seven professional poker players from seven different countries selected a wingman and an 888poker qualifier to their team.

Chris Moorman represented the UK, Parker "tonkaaaap" Talbot represented Canada, Vivian Saliba represented Brazil, Arsenii Karmatckii represented Russia, Martin Jacobson represented Sweden, Dominik Nitsche represented Germany, and Marti Roca represented Spain.
