Matchbook Pledge Commissions To ONE DROP And Release Part 1 of Sam Trickett Documentary

Release Part 1 of 3 of Sam Trickett Documentary


After a tremendous reaction from the poker industry to the trailer released by Matchbook last week documenting Sam Trickett’s rise to the top of the poker world, Matchbook have now teamed up with ONE DROP to help raise money for the foundation through their betting promotion on the ONE DROP High Roller event which takes place at the WSOP in Las Vegas on Wednesday 26th June.

Matchbook are currently offering odds on 50 of the best poker players in the world to win the ONE DROP tournament and have seen a huge volume of bets placed through their exchange with a particular interest in their money back guarantee promotion, which promises a full refund on your bet of up to a staggering £10000/$15,000 should your player not win the event but make the official final table.

With some of the players seemingly keen to back themselves for extra glory, and other poker players and fans alike seeing the value in this huge refund offer, Matchbook have extended their involvement in this market by pledging to donate all of the commission they generate from bets placed on this market to ONE DROP.

A Matchbook spokesman commented that “By putting on a promotion like this, poker players and bettors around the world can get tremendous value through our money back offer which is one of the largest ever in online gaming, while actively contributing towards the ONE DROP cause by placing a bet on our ONE DROP market.”

Alexandre Meunier from ONE DROP went on to add that “More than 3 million people die every year from water related causes, access to safe water is a worldwide issue that needs our continued attention. We are very excited that Matchbook reached out to us with their pledge because with the consistent and successful support of the poker community we can continue to impact the lives of those in need, and ensure water access for everyone today and forever.”

Following the successful release of the trailer last week on their website, there has been great excitement to watch Matchbook’s documentary focusing on Sam Trickett’s involvement in last year’s ONE DROP tournament, and Matchbook expects many users logging in to watch Part 1, which has now been released on their site today at
