For the second consecutive year BPONG.COM will bring its exciting, one-of-a-kind beer pong tournament, The World Series of Beer Pong V (WSOBP) to the Flamingo Las Vegas Jan. 1 -5, 2010. The five-day event is the largest of its kind, where the winners will take home a top prize of $50,000 and the coveted title of “Beer Pong World Champion.”
This year’s tournament marks the fifth annual competition and is expected to be even larger and more competitive than years past. Last year’s tournament drew more than 800 beer-pongers, coming from nearly every state and three different countries. Reigning champs Ron and Pop of team “Smashing Time” will be back this year to defend their seats on the beer pong throne.
Beer Pong, also widely known as Beirut, is a game that has gained immense popularity in recent years. Members of two-person teams attempt to lob Beer Pong balls (similar to table tennis balls) into the opposing team’s cups placed at the other end of a long table. The first team to land balls in each of the defending team’s cups is crowned winner. Cups are often filled with beer (but for the tournament, beer or water) and may be consumed by the players if they choose.
The deadline to register is Sat. Dec. 25, 2009. The WSOBP, in conjunction with Flamingo Las Vegas, offers a variety of registration options starting at $599 per player, which includes a four night stay at the center-Strip resort. The competition is open to both men and women 21 years and older and all teams are guaranteed a minimum of twelve games.
