The biggest buy-in event in poker tournament history will start today in monte carlo. Perhaps the most significant change to the Big One for One Drop 2016 is the fact that no professional players will be allowed to participate. This is a significant shift and one that many pros will not be happy about as many of the best players would love to get in the mix against wealthy businessmen.
Participation in this year’s tournament will be by invitation only and, according to the press release, the invite will be extended to celebrities, rich philanthropists, and wealthy recreational players. However, guessing by the tweet shared by Phil Hellmuth, some pros will get their chance to qualify for a seat.

This year's Big One for One Drop Extravaganza is invitation only and closed to professional players. Many wealthy recreational players don’t mind donating their money to charities but are evidently reluctant to donate to the seasoned professionals.
It is pleasant that the poker lives and doesn't stand still. I think a tournament it will turn out interesting and fascinating. It would be desirable to look at broadcasting, but alas there is no free time.

I had some free time last night, tried to find a live feed, but i didnt find anything. Getting a glimpse on events like this one is always nice. I wonder how rich will be, the one that is going to win this tournament
