Olivier Busquet Shares His One Drop Experience

Poker players helping transform lives through charity.

Just before getting bounced from the EPT Prague super high roller, World Poker Tour commentator and tight bro of Daniel Colman, Olivier Busquet took time to chat with PokerStars’ personality Laura Cornelius about the high-stakes SHR grind, some general life advice for young ballers and most importantly his recent trip to El Salvador and Honduras with the team from One Drop.

Invited by Colman (the winner of the 2014 One Drop), Busquet gets a first hand look at the good work of the clean water initiative of One Drop. From providing clean water filters, building wells and helping establish real world life skills to those who need help, One Drop help transform lives.

As Busquet mentions, poker players (especially those high-rollers) have helped bring roughly $12M to the charity, not an insignificant number, proving once again that while poker may be a selfish game, there is a generosity among those who play it.
