World Series Of Poker “Big One For One Drop” Event Official Player List

The one million dollar buy-in, World Series Of Poker “Big One for One Drop” event will kick off tomorrow at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino and a list of the 48 entries has been released.

The details for this event are astounding to say the least.  A figure between five and six million dollars will go to the One Drop charity which focuses on providing clean global water to places in need.  Another figure that is absurd is the $18,346,673 first place prize money.

The field was capped at 48 players and rightfully so.  The participants in the field that aren’t professional poker players want to have a reasonably even number of professionals and amateur players.  A field of 90% pro’s would obviously put the amateurs at a huge disadvantage, which is the reason for the cap of 48 players.

The tournament will start tomorrow streaming live on the link posted below, and the final day of the event will air on ESPN on July 3rd.  Here is a list of the participants.
