Anthony Gregg Victorious In One Drop

Perhaps his name was not yet well-known, but his reputation in the poker community as one of the top tournament players was. Now everyone in the poker world knows the name of Anthony Gregg, the 26-year old who bested the field of 166 high-rollers this past Saturday on his way to winning over $4.8MM and claiming his first bracelet in the $111,111 One Drop Tournament.

The field was regarded as one of the toughest of the 2013 WSOP, as top professionals from both the poker and business world clashed in an effort to both make the final table as well as raise money for the adopted charity of the WSOP, Guy Laliberté's One Drop Foundation.

The final table, which was split into two days due to time, did not disappoint. Nick “The Takeover” Schulman, Brandon Steven, Martin Jacobson and business professional Richard Fullerton were eliminated in the first half of the Final Table, on Day 3.

Then, as reported by, the final four returned for a Day 4 that lasted just 90 minutes. Last year’s $18MM man, Antonio Esfandiari, became the 4th place finisher, capping an amazing back to back run in One Drop tournaments. It wasn’t long after that the well-liked and very animated Bill Perkins had his tournament life taken at the hands of Gregg. Finally, on the 80th hand of the Final Table, poker pro Chris Klodnicki was eliminated in 2nd place for a haul of $2.985MM, easily a career best, and Gregg collected all the chip and was crowned the victor.

With this massive cash, Gregg, of course, sits atop the 2013 Money List, but also moves into the top 30 on the All Time Money List, sitting at #28, according to The Hendon Mob.
