2008 WSOP Day 33: Do you have the energy?

David Williams
Players could be going all-in against pros such as David Williams in today's special event.

Two more events will play to a winner today at the 2008 World Series of Poker while one more plays its second day and another gets its start.

However, today's action will also include a special tournament - the All-In Energy Tournament - featuring players who won an invitation to the event from the All-In Energy drink company.

There were three ways for players to qualify for the invitational event at the WSOP:

  1. Poker fans could create an account at the All-In Energy drink site and receive an invitation to the tournament after purchasing at least 16 cases of All-In Energy drink through their accounts. The first 779 people to do so received an invitation.
  2. The energy drink also hosted a contest for the top 1,000 All-In Energy drink customers to win a spot in the tournament. Every registered purchase of an All-In Energy drink earned customers "chips" in the contest, and the top 1,000 people with the most chips won an invite to the tournament.
    The people with the top 20 chips in the contest also won VIP travel and accommodations for the tournament.
  3. The final way to win an invitation was through the Wild Card Sweepstakes. The energy drink company awarded 200 invitations through a sweepstakes drawing.

The tournament will start at 11 a.m. at the Rio Las Vegas today. There is a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool, plus players can earn a $1,000 bounty for knocking out All-In Energy pros.

Some of the pros sponsored by All-In Energy include Bodog Poker pro David Williams, Team PokerStars member Chris Moneymaker, Full Tilt Poker's David Singer, plus Scotty Nguyen, Freddy Deeb, Phil Gordan and more. Who knows who will be there to play with the average Joes invited for the tournament.

There will also be plenty of pros to watch in the $10,000 World Championship Pot-Limit Omaha and $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. events which will both play down to a winner today, as well as in the final $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em tournament for the 2008 WSOP.
