2008 World Series: Million Dollar Men hit Las Vegas

In less than 48 hours, the six PokerStars Million Dollar Men will sit down in the Penn and Teller Theater at the Harrah's Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino. Making up 2/3 of the November 9, the PokerStars Million Dollar Men come from all walks of life. Though their paths may have been different, their destination has been the same. Each one of them stands to make millions of dollars before the end of the weekend.

This has been an historic year at the World Series. For the first time in the tournament's decades of stories, the final table tale took more than four months to write. It took us two weeks to pare down the field to a manageable nine. Then the players, the dealers, and the writers all went home to think for 16 weeks. Now, we all hop on planes and head back to Sin City to see who will win the 2008 World Series championship bracelet.

It will take two days to finish the final table. Sunday morning, the November 9 will play down to the final two players. Then, the following night, the heads-up opponents will return to fight head-to-head for the bracelet.

Though its impossible to say who will win, it's important to point out that PokerStars players make up six of the top seven players among the final nine.

If you didn't follow the action with us back during the summer, we've posted some brand new profiles of the six Million Dollar Men. You can find those profiles at any of the links below.
