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).
After the Finnish poker pro Patrik Antonius had swept Rui Cao (France) clean in a Triple Draw match last Friday at Full Tilt Poker, Cao suggested that the two should start a $1 million challenge consisting of pot-limit Omaha ($350k match), no-limit hold'em ($350k) and 2-7 triple draw ($300k).
On Wednesday, the challenge kicked off at a $1,500/$3,000 2-7 Triple Draw table at Full Tilt Poker. Cao won $15k in the very first hand of the match and remained in front through out the match. In fact, it only took about 3 hours and 350 hands for him to take $300,000 from Antonius.
There is still no information on when the second match will be played. Let's hope that it won't take too long!
