Largest Buy-In Tournament In Poker History...

The Final Table is now underway in Las Vegas in the One Million Dollar buy-in Big One for One Drop event.  It was the brainchild of Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte, who’s also an avid poker player and philanthropist.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit his charity, One Drop, which helps provide clean water to poverty-stricken citizens all over the world.  48 players put up the Million Dollar stake, and the spots filled up pretty quickly.  The Final Table includes Guy himself, along with Phil Hellmuth, Brian Rast and Antonio Esfandiari.  The winner will be awarded around 18 Million Dollars and the first Platinum Bracelet.   No, it’s not just a game.
