Written by Ben Blaschke

The long-awaited schedule for the upcoming Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza has been released. Highlighted by this year’s €1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop Invitational on Friday 14 October, the Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza will boast eight events – all with buy-ins of €10,000 and above – as well as a special €1 million cash game.

The Big One for One Drop Invitational itself already has 35 players confirmed, creating a prize pool of €31,111,115 so far. €111,111 from each entry will go towards the ONE DROP charity, which aims to provide isolated or poor communities with access to fresh water.

“The Monte Carlo One Drop Extravaganza is fast approaching and with 35 recreational players already confirmed to play, and many re-entries predicted, the Big One is in real good shape,” said ONE DROP founder Guy Laliberté.

“I want to remind players that there are still seven other tournaments and cash games, including a one million euro cash game, to be played during the week at what promises to be the biggest charitable poker event ever held, with proceeds going to One Drop.”

The Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza runs from Thursday 13 October to Monday 17 October with the full schedule available for download here.
