The final table of Event #57: The Big One for One Drop ($1,000,000 buy-in) is set after two days of intensive play! Day 2 began with 31 players and Sam Trickett out in front. After 13 hours of poker action, Rick Salmon (FILM PRODUCER, ACTOR, TELEVISION PRODUCER, ENTREPRENEUR, PROFESSIONAL POKER PLAYER) bagged up the largest stack (23,575,000 chips) amongst the nine survivors.
The winner and the runner-up of the 2012 Big One for One Drop (Sam Trickett and Antonio Esfandiari) were both eliminated in Day 2 and missed out on the money. The fact is, although the final table is set - one more player needs to be eliminated in Day 3 before the money bubble will burst.
That's right! The next player to be eliminated will go home empty handed while the remaining players will be guaranteed at least $1.3 million each with the chance of taking down the $15,306,668 first-place prize and the gold bracelet.
