Thirty players confirm their presence at the new WSOP event
As it turns out, Guy Laliberte's One Drop charity, which aims at providing water resources to third world impoverished communities, will see a lot of benefit from its relation with the World Series of Poker's million dollar buy-in Big One for One Drop tournament which will be held from July 1st in Las Vegas.
Namely, the latest reports from WSOP officials are that 30 players have already committed themselves to the tournament and accepted the record buy-in.
It has already been specified that the prize pool for the event will see the first placed participant take $12.3 million as things stand now, and that its final table will be aired live on ESPN.
The commitments so far include eight-time gold bracelet winner Erik Seidel, Johnny Chan, Tom Dwan and Daniel Negreanu, as well as billionaires like casino owner Phil Ruffin, and tournament organiser and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte.
In addition, the entry field is capped at 48 players, and if the number of entrants turns out to be that big, the main prize will be boosted to $18.3 million.
