The Big One for One Drop[edit]

The second edition of the $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop began on June 29. The tournament drew 42 entries, 6 fewer than the first edition in 2012, creating a prize pool of more than $37,000,000. The winner of the tournament earned $15,306,668. The tournament was first conceived by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte to benefit the One Drop Foundation, with $111,111 of each buy-in being donated to the foundation;[3] in addition, the donation was the only rake taken from the prize pool, with the WSOP taking nothing for itself.[4]

Notably absent was 1976 and 1977 Main Event champion Doyle Brunson who reported earlier in his Twitter account he will not be attending the event since the tournament hours are too long and demand too much energy. He also stated he needed to stay home to take care of his wife who was feeling ill at the time.

This was the first time since 2002 that no previous champion cashed in the Main Event, with Huck Seed making it to Day 4, the only former champ to make it to Day 4.
