Day 1 of the second-ever $1,000,000 BIG ONE for ONE DROP came to a close just an hour ago. A total of 42 players entered the tournament for $1,000,000 each and 31 will return tomorrow and fight for a slice of the $37,333,338 prize pool (top 8 players will get paid).
Sam Trickett bagged up the biggest stack with 13.4 million in chips at the end of play. The British poker pro's closest challenger is Tom Hall with 9,125,000, so don't be surprised if he scores another big payday like in 2012 when he finished runner-up to Antonio Esfandari in the first edition of this tournament.
The remaining players are fighting for a first-place prize of $15,306,668! - just about 3 million less than when Antonio Esfandari bested a field of 48 millionaires in 2012 - 28 of them were fellow poker players - including the game's premier talent.
