2014 WSOP: Rick Salomon Leads Final Nine In The Big One for ONE DROP

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.

Cheers Daniel is killing it among the chip leaders, hope he continues his form and go on to take the crown in this one. At the last 9 players we have the mixed of European and Americans sad there is no Asians they need to move up the ladder soon, maybe in the next generations. Cheers the one drop tournament is good so far, if i was to reach that far i would be glad with the 9th place lol. Cheers have fun guys!

This looks like a very exciting end to the tournament,I was surprised to see Phil Ivey get knocked out as I thought this would be his this year.
I don't know much of Rick Salomon in the poker world but he did have a big win a few years ago so he is no pushover.I know Reinkemeir is a very good player and we all know Negreanu will be wanting this badly to put him at the top of the all time leading money winners' list but Daniel Colman in 3rd place has cashed twice at this years' WSOP and won a super high roller EPT event a few months ago so the momentum could be with him this year.
My support goes to fellow Brit Paul Newey,short stack now but only two double ups will put him back into the game!!
