Let s just call it the worst bad beat in poker
history. It s the sort of thing that can drive
a person mad, or at the very least make him
or her quit poker for good.
One of the marquee events at this year s
World Series of Poker is the $1 million-buy-in
"Big One for One Drop." The entry amount is
so big that a person could pay for Main Event
entries till the next century. Or you could play
each of the other 64 WSOP tournaments on
the 2014 slate nearly four times before you would
run out of money.
Each and every one of the 42 players in the
field knew this, but there s still no escaping the
sting if you are Connor Drinan, who qualified
for the tournament via a discounted $25,000-
buy-in satellite victory. He entered with $1.13
million in lifetime tournament poker winnings,
according to the Hendon Mob database.
In level 13, with $50,000/$100,000 blinds
and a $10,000 ante, Drinan was dealt pocket
aces---the absolute best starting hand in Texas
Cary Katz bet out a cool quarter million as
the first person to act in the hand. Drinan, who
must have been absolutely giddy with the action
in the big blind, raised to $580,000.
The action then heated in predictable fashion.
Katz re-raised to $2 million, and Drinan shoved
the remainder of his $5.4 million stack in the
middle, as reported by pokernews.com.
Drinan showed his Ad-Ac, while Katz turned
What should have been a standard chop,
with odds of less than 3 percent that either
player could win the hand outright, turned inter-
esting when the flop came down 2d-Kh-5h.
The two hearts shut Drinan out from any flush
possibilities, but gave Katz a 5 percent chance
to hit runner-runner hearts to scoop the entire
pot.And that s what he got when the 4h came
down on the turn and the 2h came down on
the river, stunning any and all in attendance.
"Brutal finish to one drop but it was fun,"
Drinan Tweeted after the finish, a form of com-
munication that probably was much more PG-
rated than his words in private after the beat.
Katz said he would never complain about
pocket aces getting cracked for the remainder
of his poker life.
Only the top eight made money in the One
Drop, so 34 others felt the pain of dropping $1
million on the event, but none more than Dri-
Some of the players in the field paid every
cent of their entry. Most exercised more creative
financing, selling pieces of the action to get into
the event, because there probably are only three
poker-exclusive personalities who can afford
that steep a buy-in on their own.
A lack of financing was the reason for the
notable absence of Phil Hellmuth in the field.
The 13-time WSOP bracelet winner told media
outlets that he had intended to play the One
Drop but had had problems securing backer
"It hurts, but then you see 10 people elim-
inated, then 20 people eliminated, and then I
won t feel as bad," Hellmuth said to
calvinayre.com during the event. "Did I want
to play? Yes. Could I have won it? Yes."
