WSOP 2014: 31 Players Survived Day 1 of the $1M Buy-In Big One for One Drop, Sam Trickett Leads

Posted at 18:30 2014-07-01 by PokerNetwork Staff

The $1,000,000 buy-in Big One for One Drop is back! While it was considered a success when introduced in 2012, last year the founders decided to cut back a bit from the enormous entry fee. But now it is 2014, so as Matusow would say, "the kiddie game is down the street", so the cool $1M buy-in is back on the table. Literally.

Altogether 42 players choose to risk that much just to have a shot at the life changing money and fame, but sadly Phil Hellmuth was not one of them, even there were some rumors about him showing up at the last-minute.

Deducing the "charity fee" from the buy-in we still have $37,333,338 to play for, which will be divided among the top eight finishers. First place gets $15,306,668 if you were wondering. After the first day, 2012's runner-up has the best chance for the, since Sam Trickett has taken an early chip lead.

After finishing the first 9 levels we were left with some causalities as well, Rono Lo, Dan Smith, Niklas Heinecker, Jason Mercier, Philipp Gruissem, Brian Rast, Max Altergott, Vanessa Selbst, Igor Kurganov, Stanley Choi, David Einhorn all busted on Day 1.
