One of the WSOP’s highlight events, The Big One For One Drop high roller, will kick off on Wednesday and when the action commences the organisers expect the prize pool to top $10 million.
With a buy-in of $111,111, only the game’s elite or particularly wealthy are expected to play and show their support for the charity that helps bring fresh water supplies to communities across the world.Among those expected to play are last year’s The Big One For One Drop final two finishers, Sam Trickett and Antonio Esfandiari, as well as the likes of Phil Laak and Jeff Gross.For those that aren’t able to take part in the marquee event, The Little One For One Drop gets underway on July 3 and 4 with a $1,111 buy-in. Like its bigger brother, ten percent of the buy-in fee will go to charity along with any donations the players wish to make. Indeed, organisers are encouraging anyone who makes it into the money to go 'all-in for One Drop' and donate one percent of their prize to the cause.Overall, the WSOP and The Big One For One Drop are hoping to raise $1,111,111 for clean water projects this year with the help of the poker community.Last year’s inaugural The Big One For One Drop event was a huge success and this time around the charity’s founder, Guy Laliberte, hopes the same will be true."We took a concept and turned it into the most successful poker initiative ever held," said Laliberte."As a result, The Big One For One Drop has transformed 150,000 lives. Projects in Honduras, El Salvador and Burkina Faso have already put the money to use. With these types of initiatives, we can continue to impact the lives of those in need while at the same time raising awareness of the impact water has on our planet."
