Billy Thorpe will join Shane van Boening and Skyler Woodward on Team USA for the 25th annual partypoker Mosconi Cup at Alexandra Palace, London this December, with two more players still to be announced.
Thorpe made his Mosconi debut in Las Vegas 12 months ago and has travelled to major world events representing America this year.
“Billy is an intense competitor who always tries his hardest,” said coach Johan Ruijsink. “He is young and wild, which makes him incredibly hard to play against.
“He can run you over like a freight train. When he makes a mistake, you can be sure that he recovers and tries even harder. It is great to have him on the team. Off the table there is always something happening around him, which is great fun and good for the team. He hasn’t reached his ceiling yet and I hope I can help him getting there.”
