He may have won the best part of $15million this year so far, but even Justin Bonomo is selling a chunk of his action for this years WSOP $1,111,111 million buy-in Big One for One Drop – and his 5% mark-up is going to charity…

Even Bonomo, the winningest player of the year, needs to sell a large piece of himself for the biggest buy-in event of the calendar – well aware of the vicissitudes of tournament play, his 15-straight heads-up wins this year no guarantee of success.

The 48-player cap on the field looks set to be met, the rake-free event in such case producing a prize-fund of $44,160,000 – with 8% going to the One Drop Foundation set up by Cirque du Soleil guru Guy Laliberte to provide access to safe water worldwide.
