Day 2 Completed
Day 2 Completed
Daniel Dizenzo from the United States ended Day 2 as chip leader of the Little One for One Drop, bagging up 1,345,000. Alexandros Papadopoulos from Greece is in second place with 1,200,000, while Luigi Knoppers from the Netherlands takes the third spot with 1,174,000.
This year's One Drop events were a huge success. In the Little One Drop, $487,401 was raised and every single person who entered the event contributed to the donation. Over three starting flights there were 4,391 entries, including some very generous multiple re-entries.
Between the High Roller and Little One Drop, more than $992,000 went to One Drop on behalf of the players in 2017.

Day 2 saw cards in the air at 2 p.m. with the survivors of those three flights combined to make a field of 752. With 659 places getting paid they were 93 exits away from the money bubble. That seemed at the time like a fair few players to bust but it took just over one hour-long level to send the remainder of the players into the money.
Ozgur Arda was the unfortunate player who bubbled, holding against the of Adam Duong. The board ran out with the turn card giving Duong a set to bust Arda.
There followed the usual stampede to the payout desk and some of the big names who failed to bag up chips included Joseph Cheong, JC Tran, Pierre Neuville and Jason Mercier.
Notables who did make it through to Day 3 include Matt Affleck (347,000), Dan Heimiller (629,000), Chris Ferguson (163,000), Upeshka De Silva (127,000) and Roman Korenev (558,000).
Mother and son players Gail and Sean Getzwiller made it deep into Day 2 but a bluff into Jean Gaspard’s flopped set of Kings left Gail short. She exited near the end of day. Sean Getzwiller returns Saturday, though, with 268,000 to carry on the fight for family honor.
Action resumes at 2 p.m. again for Day 3 of The Little One for One Drop when the remaining 100 players will continue their quest for the first place prize of $528,316 and a coveted gold bracelet.
