All in For One Drop - Poker tournament - 2017 edition of the logo.A number of poker's biggest names turned out for the €111,111 High Roller for One Drop WSOPE bracelet event, which got underway earlier today.

In addition to benefitting the One Drop charity, the tournament is also looking to provide players with some massive payouts. Though the final payout numbers haven't been released as of yet (registrations are still being allowed), the eventual winner of the event will walk away with a massive multi-million Euro payday.

The tournament ended up attracting a mix of professional poker players, businessmen and athletes.

Phil Hellmuth, who is the all-time WSOP bracelet leader, entered the event but was sent to the rail early. Hellmuth elected not to re-enter the event.

Boris Becker also turned out to play in the event, though he was also dispatched to the rail in short order. In a tournament filled with sharks, Becker didn't stand much of a chance.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier also elected to play. While he is still alive in the event, "ElkY" is already on his second bullet, which could make the tournament a very expensive one for him if he isn't able to cash in the event.


Here is a partial list of the recognizable names who are taking part in the event:

Patrik Antonius
Gus Hansen
Steffen Sontheimer
Dan Shak
Eugene Katchalov
Bryn Kenney
Fedor Holz
Liv Boeree
Sam Trickett


There are currently 62 players left in the event as of this moment. The tournament will continue through the weekend, with the winner being crowned sometime on Sunday evening.
