34 Players Confirmed for One Drop $1 Million Buy-In Tournament

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is around the corner, starting in only a few weeks from now. While the first events rarely gets a lot of attention, the massive One Drop tournament is guaranteed to get it. With a massive buy-in of $1 million and an expected first prize of $20 million, some of the richest and best players in the world have already announced their arrival to the tournament.

The latest names to be added to the list includes Jean-Robert Bellande as well as Cristoph Vogelsang, but more are also expected to join. Currently a total of 34 players have registered for the tournament, with room for a total of 56.

Interestingly a total of five Germans announced that they will be playing the tournament, which includes: Fabian ‘fabstinho’ Quoss, Max ‘AltiFC’ Altergott, Tobias ‘PokerNoob999’ Reinkemeier, Igor ‘lechuckpoker’ Kurganov and Niklas ‘ragen70’ Heinecker. While they have all won massive tournaments in the past, it is doubtful that they will be paying the massive buy-in themselves only.

An anonymous Asian businessman will also join the fun in the tournament and will probably be one of the few non-professional players to participate. You can find a complete list of the players registered below:
