In order to help make the inaugural edition of the LSOP (Latin Series of Poker) an immediate success, PICClub has joined forces with LSOP Management to help draw attention to the event by bringing in their much-heralded new PIC Pro Team (PCPT).

Chuck Kidd, PICClub President, today announced, "Our PIC Pro Team (PCPT) is preparing to invade Costa Rica and the LSOP (Latin Series of Poker) this November 19 - 23."

PICClub has instituted a new campaign of "Play Poker with the PIC PRO's" in their never-ending crusade to make the processing of funds to and from online poker sites an easier process.

"And for that reason we have invited all branches of our forces to come prepared for battle", Kidd continued. "That includes the PCPT, Online Poker Room Marketing Managers and Management Teams, our Professional Staff, and of course, our thousands of PICClub members. Before and after the battles of poker skill at the LSOP, we will be holding meetings and various round table sessions, a Summit if you will, for all parties to learn how PICClub can help rooms expand their business, and how our members can make online poker more profitable, easier and fun."

Leading the charge will be PICClub's new Ambassador, TJ Cloutier, whose very presence and record of most tournament wins in poker history, brings instant credibility to the team. Striking fear into the hearts of poker players everywhere is Amir Vehedi, Captain of the PCPT, which includes such notables as Barbara Enright, Kenna James, Young Phan, Marsha Waggoner, Jennifer "Jennicide" Leigh, Warren Karp, Jim "Krazy Kanuck" Worth, Sam Simon and Kato Kaelin.

Warren Karp, well-known poker author and professional player, has accepted the position as Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for PIC.

Said Karp, recently, "I am excited to come on board with PICClub. With the Bluff Online Poker Tour and other events growing around us, we are joining forces with the inaugural edition of the LSOP in Costa Rica. This will serve to illustrate how a Brick & Mortar end game strategy can create a dynamic synergy between online poker sites and PICClub members.

Costa Rica offers many things in addition to the LSOP tournament. So, in addition to watching and playing poker, folks can enjoy golf, world-class fishing, visits to the rain forest or the volcanoes, or participate in a variety of tours. Costa Rica also boasts a world-renowned nightlife scene.

Arrivals for the Summit are on the 18th, but anyone wishing to play can come sooner. The event runs from Nov. 12 through 23. The toll-free U.S. Reservations Number for the Martino Hotel is 1-888-886-5042 or, dial direct at 011-506-2-433-8382. In order to receive the special LSOP rates, simply mention the LSOP as the purpose of the stay.

For plane ticket reservations, contact Eduardo Matamoros at 011-506-8839-1218, or 011-506-2229-7539, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Costa Rican time.
