King's Casino To Host WSOPE One Drop Tourney (€10,000,000 Guarantee)

Tags: charity, Czech Republic, Kings Casino, Leon Tsoukernik, One Drop, Phil Hellmuth.
Posted on 29 March 2017 by "T".

King's Casino (Rozvadov, Czech Republic) will host its first World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) One Drop High Roller along with a Little One for One Drop tourney in November. The flagship tournament has a massive €10,000,000 guarantee and 50 players have already committed to play it by forking out a €11,000 non-refundable deposit each.

"These kind of numbers are something that is surely unprecedented in an event of this kind this far away from it starting," owner of King's Casino Leon Tsoukernik said "With a cap of 111 players, we nearly have half the field with well over six months to go!"

Tony G, Antonio Esfandiari, Fedor Holz, Patrik Antonius, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Daniel "jungle man" Cates, Boris Becker, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Ivey are just a few of the notables who have pre-registered for the €111,111 One Drop High Roller. 

Phil Hellmuth said: "One day in Vegas I lost too much money playing poker and handed Guy Laliberté some cash for his "One Drop" charity. Now, the poker world is "all in" for One Drop! I've heard so much about Leon and King's Casino and look forward to checking it out in person. I will be going for the WSOP Circuit and then on to WSOP Europe and naturally I will be playing both the High Roller and the Little One for such a brilliant cause and the bracelets up for grabs."

One Drop, a non-profit organization created by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté, has raised over $18 million to help people around around the world get access to safe water. Antonio Esfandiari took home the first Big One for One Drop in 2012. All 48 seats available for the event were filled, resulting in a first prize of $18.3 million, breaking the record of $12 million won by Jamie Gold at the 2006 WSOP.

well actually even if it's two drops, i am not very interested in playing this event, sorry guy dude, pochui will not be part of 111 players who will be fighting for the single drop by paying 11k euros, i prefer to buy my drops in litres and way more cheaper than this.

The casino in Rozvadov was one of the populars Casino´s in central Europe in the last years, but this big tournament was a really the highlight there! And a guarantee prize pool of 10 millions are amazing, but the entry of 11.000 € too Blink

Wish we could have some cheap satellites for this tourney - I might would try to get in - otherwise I see no chance to be able to shell out 11k just for a ticket, let alone go and stay a week in the Czech Republic.

might be interesting to see who stakes who, or if anyone is selling % online.

This is a really big buyin and prizepool tournament that is happening in Czech republic, I do not think they have more tournament of this big prizes, so to anyone close to this European country thus is a good chance to try to play in bug tournament close to your country with less expenses.

The guarantee is a good one.
The thing that i didnt get is, why having a cap of 111 players only.
The math doesnt look right for me. 111 players with 11k euro buy in each.
They like paying the rest of the money from their pockets? Smile
Am i missing something here?
 pajalnick30/03/2017 00:11:00 GMT
A good chance for a good prize for good players ... only 111 participants and a very large prize fund give a chance to win many wonderful players .... I would like to see the broadcast of this tournament ... I think that it will be possible to see on which Site ... the main thing is not to forget about it)))
 kidcougar30/03/2017 04:14:26 GMT
the buy-in is 111,111 euros, the 11k deposit is a non-refundable amount to reserve your seat. now the math adds up...lol

This sounds like it is going to be a fantastic tournament and i am really looking forward to catching some coverage when it comes on. The list of names is phenomenal and it wiil be interesting to see who comes out on top

Yea aftrer reading your posts i reread the article again.
Now it makes more sense and adds up to the total value.
But with the way it was written i didnt get that the 11k was to keep a spot in the list.
I have never heard of something like that happening before Smile

i think maybe because a limited number of seats so there isnt any overflow to back up if someone pulls/stops people from pulling out because they will instantly lose money?

when will be the coverage of this?
