The organization that hosts the World Series of Beer Pong (WSOBP), held in all its sudsy glory each year at Flamingo Las Vegas, has announced its ranking of U.S. states with the most beer pong players, and Nevada sits in the fourth spot.

Topping the list with the most beer pong players were California, New York and Texas. Arizona rounds out the top five, just below Nevada.

Many consider O'Sheas on the Strip to be the Mecca of beer pong.

The list of top beer pong player states was based on an analysis of about 2,000 World Series of Beer Pong registrations over the past two years. So, while not an all-encompassing count of beer pong players (since many play for recreation without entering competitions), it seems a reasonably good measurement of beer pong enthusiasm across the country.

The World Series of Beer Pong is the largest and longest-running beer pong tournament in the world.

We were there for the most recent WSOBP (in January, 2011), so take a look.

Trash talk is a big part of beer pong success.

The states with the fewest beer pong players? Idaho, Rhode Island and Vermont. They’re the only states to have never had a player in the World Series of Beer Pong.

Ontario, British Columbia ranks tops as the international region to send the most players to the WSOBP.

KGB Beer Pong

KGB restaurant at Harrah's Las Vegas recently added beer pong to its offerings.

All six World Series of Beer Pong events have been held in Nevada, with the past four events taking place on the Las Vegas Strip. Last year’s WSOBP event drew more than 1,000 participants, several of whom actually remember being at the event. We kid. Probably.

The next World Series of Beer Pong (VII) will be held Jan. 1-5, 2012, again at Flamingo Las Vegas. The event is expected to pay $65,000 in prize money, with $50,000 going to the winning team.
