One Drop to Drip Again

One Drop to Drip Again

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

While the final three conclude their drawn-out battle for the WSOP title today, the rest of poker world are already starting to look forward to 2014’s Series thanks to Guy Laliberte.

Following on from the success of this year’s One Drop event, Guy has announced that there will be another $1 million buy-in charity event during the 2014 WSOP. The statement was made on Monday and has, so far, been met with widespread approval.

With two years to organise the event the WSOP and Guy are hoping to attract a host of corporate sponsors as well as implement a comprehensive satellite programme.

If they are successful in each department we should see the richest poker tournament in history receive mass media attention. Not only that, but a number of average grinders will have the chance to satellite their way into a multi-million dollar tournament.

In a bid to fill the gap left by One Drop event’s hiatus, the WSOP and Guy have decided to run a “mini One Drop” at next year’s WSOP. With a buy-in of $1,111, players will be permitted to rebuy as many times as they like over the course of two days.

With some of poker’s deepest pockets likely to ante-up in the name of charity we could certainly see one of the largest prizepools for a $1,000 event in the history of the game.
