TV producer and the former boyfriend of various celebrities such as Shannen Doherty, Paris Hilton, Rick Salomon, is currently leading this year's $1 million One Drop event.
Despite being one of the least experienced players in the super high roller, the American pseudo celeb and Mr Pamela Anderson, has raked in more than 20 million chips and bypassed the likes of Phil Ivey, Sam Trickett and Phil Galfond. Day 2 has seen more than 20 players eliminated, including the aforementioned trio who couldn't find a way through to tomorrow's final session. Also feeling the force of negative variance was Antonio Esfandiari. The defending champion will miss out on a place in the final session after his Ad 5h couldn't overcome Tobias Reinkemeier's As Jc in the final rounds of the day. While Day 2 proved profitable for some there was some sad news for one player looking to defy the odds. Gabe Kaplan was one of the surprise entrants this year and after making it through the opening day he quickly became the railbirds' favourite pick. Unfortunately, Gabe was eliminated just before the close of Day 2 when his Ad Qs couldn't overcome the pocket sixes of Rick Salomon. Along with Gabe a number of other notables fell by the wayside, which meant just nine players are now just one session away from a One Drop title and $15,306,668 in prize money. One will hit the rail disappointed though as only eight make the money with the min-cash a cool $1.3m.$1 million One Drop Day 2 Chip Counts:1. Rick Salomon - 23,575,0002. Tobias Reinkemeier - 22,825,0003. Daniel Colman - 22,625,0004. Daniel Negreanu - 20,700,0005. Cary Katz - 9,125,0006. Scott Seiver - 8,250,0007. Tom Hall - 7,775,0008. Christoph Vogelsang - 7,075,0009. Paul Newey - 4,050,000
