Tags: basketball, big one for one drop, loudmouth, sponsor, tony g
Posted on Monday, June 25, 2012 by "T".

Poker pro and loudmouth Antanas Guoga, better known as Tony G, won't be taking part in Big One for One Drop at the 2012 World Series of Poker - even though he was one of the 42 pre-registered players for the tournament. The reason seems to be that he will travel around with Lithuania's basketball team, together with other big sponsors of the team, at the same time as the tournament is played in Las Vegas.

This means that 41 players will take part in Big One for One Drop. The tournament kicks off in a week and still there are 7 seats (48 player cap) available to anyone who has the money and the guts to use $1,000,000 for a single poker tournament!
