The Big One for One Drop
The Big One for One Drop™ is a philanthropic poker event that debuted in 2012 with a sold out 48-seat tournament that raised US$5.6 million for One Drop. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) and One Drop decided to make The Big One a recurring event, and it's been held every 2 years ever since; The Big One for One Drop 2018 was the 4th edition of this tournament.
The Big One for One Drop is the tournament of all superlatives:
The Big One for One Drop is a biennial event created by One Drop Chair and Cirque du Soleil® founder, Guy Laliberté, in collaboration with former Caesars Interactive Entertainment CEO Mitch Garber. These events make use of WSOP’s poker expertise and global reach in an unprecedented effort to raise awareness about water-related issues, and to raise funds to allow One Drop to continue delivering on its vital mandate.
Thanks to WSOP’s television industry partners, the three first Big One tournaments have been broadcast to millions of viewers around the world.
