Poker fans who enjoyed watching the Big One for One Drop at the 2012 World Series of Poker got a special surprise on Monday night. During the live broadcast of the 2012 WSOP Main Event final table, Guy Laliberte, founder of One Drop, announced that the $1 Million buy-in event will return in 2014 as a bracelet event.
“It’s amazing what you can achieve when you dream,” said Laliberte. “We took the concept of a $1 million poker tournament and turned it into the most successful poker initiative ever held. As a result, over 100,000 people will be positively impacted. Projects in Honduras, El Salvador and West Africa have already put to use the money we raised in the initial event.”
