(Las Vegas, NV) — The largest-ever buy-in poker tournament kicks off this weekend in Las Vegas. The “Big One for One Drop” is taking place during the annual World Series of Poker event.
Nearly four-dozen players have ponied up $1-million each to take part in the event. The winner will walk away with at least $35-million in cash, and a platinum WSOP bracelet.
Part of the money will go to One Drop, which provides clean drinking water to poor areas.
The “Big One for One Drop” starts Sunday and wraps up Tuesday at the Rio hotel.
