In two short years the World Series of Poker Big One For One Drop has become one of the most anticipated poker tournaments among fans, simply because of the super huge $1 million buy-in, the even bigger money that is to be won and the high profile players that take part. On top of all that, the tournament also gives to a worthwhile charity.
We are back with the next three episodes of the coverage of the One Drop following on from the first that we shared with you here.
The episodes are provided by ESPN who have been airing the coverage worldwide, so we are sharing them with any of you that might not have had a chance to watch them as of yet. This time around the coverage starts with 21 of the original 42 players remaining and with Dan Colman holding the chip lead with 12,525,000 in chips.
The action then sees a number of high class action, a host of eliminations and the usual entertaining commentary. Among the players featured are the (then) defending champion Antonio Esfandiari, the player who finished as runner up Sam Trickett, Rick Solomon, Scott Seiver and PokerStars Team Pro Daniel Negreanu.
The players are all battling it out for the huge first place payout of $15 million for the winner, an amount that is more than simply life-changing. The winner is likely to catapult themselves up into the top all time earners from the game in one foul swoop.
Each of the videos are around 45 minutes long, however, simply because the action is so tense at the tables, they are easily watched one after the other without even stopping.
Sit back and enjoy the action and particularly watch out for a well talked about hand involving two players holding pocket aces in episode 2, where one of them actually managed to hit a flush to eliminate the other.
