One Drop

Sent i aften dansk tid løber den længeventede One Drop-turnering af stablen ved dette års World Series of Poker. Turneringen, som har et buy-in på intet mindre end $1.000.000, har samlet de bedste af de bedste pokerspillere rundt omkring i verden krydret med nogen af de rigeste buisnessfolk.

Det er Cirque du Soleil-grundlæggeren, Guy Laliberte, som er initiativtageren bag projektet, og han har sørget for at 11.1 % af alle buy-ins går til velgørenhedsprojektet One Drop, hvilket betyder at mere end $5.5 millioner bliver doneret til fonden.

Turneringen havde et loft på 48 spillere, og i dag tog vores egen Gus Hansen den sidste plads, da han vandt den $25.300-dyre Mega Satellit.

Top 9 får præmier, og til den endelige vinder vil der være hele $18.346.673.

Du kan selvfølgelig følge den seeromspændte turnering direkte fra vores live-side, når det hele går igang kl. 22.11 i aften dansk tid, men indtil da kan du jo tage et kig på de 48 spillere, som skal i kamp i den største pokerturnering nogensinde:
