Tony G out of $1m WSOP One Drop event

Saturday, 16 June 2012

Over 40 high rolling pros and deep-pocketed businessmen will be competing for a multimillion dollar prize pool at the massive $1m Big One for One Drop event at this year's World Series.

One player who won't now be there though is Tony G. Guoga will instead be fulfilling his commitments with a Lithuanian basketball team (he's managing, not playing) which will be on a tour of the US during the One Drop event.

Guoga's exit means that 41 of the 48 berths in the $1m buy-n tournament are now filled. Confirmed names include Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan, Sam Trickett and Patrik Antonius.

Over $111,000 from each million dollar buy-in will go to the One Drop charity which provides clean water in developing countries.
