One Drop at the World Series of Poker Europe - 2017.This year's High Roller for One Drop at the World Series of Poker Europe attracted a number of the world's biggest and best players, including the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius.

In the end, however, it was Dominik Nitsche who ended up taking down the tournament for €3,487,463.

With his victory, Nitsche, who plays as "Bounatirou" on Pokerstars and resides in Minden, Germany, added another World Series of Poker bracelet to his growing collection.
