This is the little brother to The Big Drop for One Drop. Buy-in is $1,111 of which $111 goes to the One Drop Foundation. The junior event saw 4,496 players enter the event which pays a large $637,539 to the winner. And yes, they also receive a WSOP gold bracelet. The top 468 finishers (that's 52 nine-handed tables) receive at least $1,780 from the $4,046,400 prize pool.
Players have the option of unlimited re-entry into the tournament during the first 4 levels of play if they are eliminated. The charitable cause gives many an excuse to do just that. It's also provides the most bang for the buck. Where else can a poker player find a tournament with a $1,111 buy-in that offers the winner $637 thousand and change?
And, we all know there only one place and way to get a World Series of Poker gold bracelet. You have to play in the WSOP and win an event to receive one of the bracelets that's considered by many to be priceless.
