Greg Raymer and Team U.S.A. won PokerStars World Cup of Poker IV in Barcelona. Canada's Daniel Negreanu only played two hands on the final day before getting knocked out in fourth place.

Teams from the United States, Canada, Romania and Iceland were fighting for World Cup honors and $100,000 in prize money.

Team U.S.A. got in trouble early on when Tyler Netter was all-in pre-flop holding Q-Jo against Romanian star Cristian Dragomir, who sat with K-Qs. Netter, however, made an inside straight on the river to stay alive and double up.

Instead, Canada, with its star player Daniel Negreanu, was the first team to leave the final. Already in his second hand of play, Negreanu moved all-in with pocket sevens, and Shaun Deeb of the United States called with K-J. A king on the turn sealed Negreanu's and Canada's fate.

Deeb went on to knock out Iceland's Andri Bjorgvin with Q-J against A-9, and then secured the victory for his country when he busted Romanian Cristian Tardea with A-Q against J-8.

Team U.S.A. won the World Cup and received $100,000 to share among the five players on the team - Greg Raymer, Tyler Netter, Shaun Deeb, Randy Principe and John Kenlan.

Results from PokerStars World Cup of Poker IV:

1. United States (Tyler Netter, Randy Principe, Greg Raymer, John Kenlan, Shaun Deeb) - $100,000

2. Romania (Razvan Bengulescu, Florin Constantin, Cristian Rajala, Cristian Tardea, Cristian Dragomir) - $60,000

3. Iceland (Andri Bjorgvin, Fridrik Jorgensson, Halldor Sverrisson, Einar Sveinsson, Magnus Johannesson) - $40,000

4. Canada (Jody Thompson, Ed Byrne, Otto Byrne, Daniel Negreanu, Michael Watson) - $20,000.
