Facing off against the Million Dollar Men

In just a couple of weeks, we will know who will be the 2008 World Series of Poker champion. There is a pretty good chance that one of the PokerStars Million Dollar Men will win the big one. Before they get the chance to win the bracelet, however, the PokerStars 6 will have to have face off against three PokerStars players in the Million Dollar Men Main Event

Next weekend, PokerStars' Million Dollar Men Dennis Phillips, Ivan Demidov, Peter Eastgate, Ylon Schwartz, Darus Suharto and David ‘Chino’ Rheem will play against PokerStars players sirhindle, AhardDeath07, and 11RoyJoneS11 for a $235,000 prize pool.

Yeah, that's right. Today, those final three players beat out nearly 3,000 other runners today to play for a fairly massive amount of money. Everybody in the event will get $10,000, but first place is guaranteed $100,000! Here are the full payouts.

1st -- $100,000
2nd -- $50,000
3rd -- $25,000
4th-9th -- $10,000

Any money the PokerStars 6 win will go to charity. Any money won by the other three players will go right in their PokerStars accounts.

You can watch the tournament by clicking TOURNEY and SPECIAL in the PokerStars lobby and looking for "Million Dollar Men - Main Event."
