This re-entry event offers the players a chance to show their skills on the poker table, compete for the prize pool worth €10,000,000 and gold bracelet, and, in the meanwhile, help thousands of people to solve their water problems. It is expected to be a spectacular match. The €111,111 One Drop High Roller Event will be preceded by €1,100 Little One for One Drop No-Limit Hold’em with a €500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
