black friday, Full tilt, divorce etc. That's the gist, I'm sure someone else could explain in much more detail.I think that was said more in jest though. He has $15mil in debt according to his divorce proceedings, but I think (again, could be wrong, there's so much about black friday/ivey/scandal/poker going down the tube etc that I've just started glancing over stories now) that means more that he owes $15m, it's not that he has -$15m in his bank account. I assume if he wanted to play this event, he could (but he might not due to boycotting WSOP etc).Again, take all this with a pinch of salt, not 100% up to date on the accurate facts

There is going to be a lot of swapping and backing and selling shares for this one for sure.$1 Million is a lot of money

WSOP Announces Sats For The Big One for One Drop

Quote

On July 1, 2012, the World Series of Poker will host The Big One for One Drop at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. The $1-million buy-in event will be the largest poker tournament ever held, with a projected eight-figure first prize. Now, the WSOP is offering players without an astronomical bankroll the opportunity to satellite into the event for as little as $65. Venues around the country will host live step-satellite poker tournaments that will culminate with a a $25,300 buy-in finale that event will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on June 30, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. That event will guarantee a seat into The Big One for One Drop; in addition, one seat will be created for every 40 entries in the mega satellite.Read more: http://www.pokernews...-drop-12385.htm

out of interest, any idea if Chan speaks Mandarin? I know Sam Trickett has begun taking lessons to learn so he can take part in the 'banter' and hopefully become a bit more accepted and be a regular on the invite list.
Chan was born in southern China to mainland parents. I would be willing to bet he's fluent in Mandarin.Cobalt's also correct that Macau is Cantonese speaking. But Chan lived in Hong Kong for a time, so I'd bet he'd know Cantonese. Actually I just read that the province Chan was born in mainly speaks Cantonese, so he's probably fluent in it at least.And actually, the learning curve between between the two isn't too sharp, with a decent amount of shared vocabulary, and the same grammar structure. There's still learning to be done, but it's certainly easier to learn one after learning the other.

Does anyone really think someone who sats in for 65, will really play and not take the money?
