The discovery of a Standard Model Higgs boson is possible when experimental cuts are applied which increase the ratio of signal and background cross-sections. We present a study of the pp→H→WW signal crosssection at hadron colliders which requires a selection of Higgs bosons with small transverse momentum. We compare predictions for the efficiency of the experimental cuts from a NNLO QCD calculation and the event generator MC@NLO and are able to predict a reliable number for the cross-section after the aplpication of such experimental cuts. 1
