In the midst of all the amazing fun and drama of yesterday, the World Series of Poker threw their hat into the ring by announcing another 11 names of players who have committed to putting up $1M to buy-in to the 2014 Big One For One Drop tournament.
The expanded list includes a number of people that the poker world had been expecting to play but had yet to confirm: Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu, 2012 WSOP Champ Greg Merson, bracelet winner and World Poker Tour Champ Scott Seiver, Daniel “Jungleman” Cates and Issac Haxton all were included.
Recent bracelet winner and lover of fun Doug Polk is a high-stakes monster and he had previously mentioned that he would be playing when talking with Bluff.
Here’s the list that you may not know as well: CEO of Winmark Corporation John Morgan who famously got his opponent to fold quads in the 2012 One Drop, poker pro Daniel Coleman who won the SHR in Monte Carlo this past April for over $2M, businessman Tom Hall, return participant UK businessman Talal Shakerchi and of course…
ANONYMOUS BUSINESSMAN – no ethnicity specified this time around!
Here’s the full list (to date) of who’s crazy enough to take a shot at a $20M 1st place payday.
Because this is basically a press release, we have no problem copying and pasting the details of the event for you right here.
