Earlier today, Phil Ivey took to his Twitter account to post this message:

"Headed to the #OneDrop. Nice to be back in #Vegas and playing at the #WSOP"

The Tweet was accompanied by a picture of Ivey standing in front of a golf course with the Las Vegas skyline in the background.


There were rumors that Ivey, who currently has ten World Series of Poker bracelets to his name, would be returning to Las Vegas in mid-June to take part in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship.

The cash games in Macau, however, presumably turned out to be too enticing for Ivey to leave, so he elected to make his way to Vegas in late June instead.


Ivey elected to make Event #58 ($111,111 High Roller for ONE DROP) his first tournament of the 2015 World Series of Poker.

The tournament benefits the ONE DROP charity, as 5% of the entry pool is removed to donate to the charity. This means that $105,555 of each buy-in will go towards the prize pool.

Late registration is open for the first 9 levels of the event, and the tournament is set to conclude sometime tomorrow evening.


As of this moment, 124 entries have been tallied for the event. In addition to Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Galfond and Daniel Negreanu are also playing in the event.
