New York Team Crushes Beer Pong Competition

This past weekend BPONG.COM and the World Series of Beer Pong hosted over 400 competitive Beer Pong teams from the United States and Canada at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, where they held The World Series of Beer Pong IV.

When the dust, ping pong balls and beer foam had settled, only one team stood triumphant… after 2,675 games, Ron Hamilton and Michael Popielarski from New York’s “Smashing Time” came out on top, dominating the competition to win the grand prize of $50,000.

For you noobs, here’s a summary of the sport: the game is played with cups of beer lined up like bowling pins on two ends of a 14-foot table. Team members alternate trying to toss a ping pong ball into the cups. The team that lands all the cups wins, the losers drink… although the rules may be subject to a wide variety of modifications and additions based on location or house rules.
