The BIG ONE for ONE DROP

Back to News

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is hosting The BIG ONE for ONE DROP, a high-rolling poker tournament featured as part of the 43rd Annual WSOP to benefit ONE DROP. The championship event, taking place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, from July 1 to 3, 2012, will contribute to ONE DROP’s programs by means of charitable donations through registration fees.

“I am looking forward to The BIG ONE for ONE DROP tournament,” says Guy Laliberté, chair of ONE DROP, founder of Cirque du Soleil®, and poker enthusiast. “It is a creative and innovative way to fund ONE DROP’s projects that help fight poverty by supporting access to safe water worldwide.” The three-day tournament will also be one of the most significant charity initiatives in poker history. The event, airing on ESPN, expects to entice a roster of the world’s most affluent poker professionals, high-net worth individuals and satellite qualifiers from all over the globe to step up and ante up the $1 million entry fee, or “buy-in.” WSOP will donate 11.1% of each entry fee to ONE DROP.
