Players Start Confirming $1 Million Buy in for the WSOP Big One for One Drop
Super high rollers are starting to cough up the cash and are currently confirming their seats for this years WSOP Big One for One Drop tournament which asks for a $1 Million buy in. The event is now a bi-annual tournament at the WSOP and the 2012 winner Antonio Esfandiari took the first place prize of a staggering $18 Million, however with more seats available this time around, that win looks set to be beat. The latest player to confirm entry and who will become the first ever woman to enter the event is poker pro Vanessa Selbst who is hoping to increase her career tournament winnings which currently stand at a cool $9.6 Million. The PokerStars Pro and 2 time WSOP bracelet winners said that, "I'm so excited to be taking part in The Big One for One Drop this year, I didn't get to play in 2012, but after seeing how much fun everyone had with the event as well as how profound an impact it had on One Drop, I knew I had to be a part of it this time around."
The total amount of players now confirmed for this huge event, of which all entry fees go to the One Drop Charity stands at 33, and with only 56 seats available then players who wish to get involved will be doing so soon. Players taking their seats include Tony Gregg who won the first tourney of this kind in 2013, although that was not the $1 Million buy in and was called the WSOP One Drop High Roller. Others that have paid up to play are Fabian Quoss, Igor Kurganov, Niklas Heinecker, Jean-Robert Bellande and Max Altergott.
There are no cheap seats available to that one, however should you wish to play your way to Vegas then Bovada Poker are offering promotions that are delivering many $12,000 WSOP Main Event Packages with satellites running right now. New players at Bovada will receive a cool 100% up to $1,000 welcome bonus giving plenty of extra cash to take to the tables and make it to this years World Series of Poker.
