Big One for One Drop: Satellite tournaments in casinos Joa

Joa casinos offer the opportunity to poker players from all over France to have a chance to participate in the top-level tournament Big One for One Drop. For information, One Drop is an NGO founded by Guy Laliberte, who created and directs the Cirque du Soleil, and who is also, an avid highstakes poker player.

To recap, the Big One for One Drop will be held from July 1 to 3, 2012 in Las Vegas.

Among the professionals who have already confirmed their presence, there's Gus Hansen, Patrick Antonius, Doyle Brunson and Tony G.

The buy-in for these tournaments to be held from January 8 to 29 is set at € 100. Those who triumph in it can confront in the Sit and Go tournament to be held on February 4, 2012 to obtain a package of € 25,000.
