French pro, well known e-sports gamer and part of LiquidPoker.net family, Bertrand ”ElkY” Grospellier is leading the final 23 players after Day 2 of the 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) $111,111 buy-in One Drop High Roller event.
ElkY is holding a little bit over 7 million in chips and he is closely followed by players like Dario Sammartino (6,080,000), Scott Seiver (4,920,000), former One Drop winners Dan Colman (4,100,000) and Antonio Esfandiari (2,105,000). There are still few more notable players left in the chase, with Doug Polk (3,500,000), Phil Hellmuth (2,870,000) and Phil Galfond (1,685,000) being amongst them.
Top 20 players will receive money, and the minimum cash is $166,666.
The event is considerably less popular then last year - in 2017 only 130 players registered, which is a huge difference from last year's 183 entries. The first-place prize is still quite massive and worth $3,686,865.
