Wait let me check in my handbag, searching, searching, Hey where is my million? Too bad, forgot it at home, can't play this one.
What I am wondering is how much players will be participating in this awesome tournament?

Hats off to Guy Laliberté's generosity. I think Laliberté's priority is to raise as much money as he can for One Drop Foundation. He also wants to create a fun and comfortable atmosphere for non-professional players where they are not under the imminent threat of being trounced by seasoned professionals.

The €1,000,000 Big One for One Drop Invitational will only be open to businessmen, philanthropic, and celebrity recreational players.* it would be interesting to look at the game of world politics))) at the final table, Putin, Obama, Merkel and Kim Jong-un
Not sure why this self appointed prince of this miniature tax-evasion paradise considers water as a good cause, since soon after the climate change hits hard water will be practicaly everywhere, but who cares, right? After all throwing a really-really good charity party cost upwards of a good six figures sum so they only have to raise a little bit more than that '4 the cause' to make it worth...

hooray for the big one for one drop and it's exceptionally wise move to move to monte carlo, surely they could have founded even better places to move, say one of the secluded, peaceful and democratic villages of north korea, where they would be treated by the warmth of local countrymen and even get some free carrots and beets.
