The $1,111 buy-in “Little One for One Drop” poker tournament at the 2014 World Series of Poker followed suit with the $1 million buy-in “Big One for One Drop” earlier this week by falling short of the previous running’s turnout.

A total of 4,496 players entered the $1,111 buy-in this week, down from 4,756 in 2013. The $1 million buy-in this year drew 42, down from 48 in 2012. The big tournament last year for One Drop was a $111,111 buy-in, the first time it had ever run at the WSOP.

Last year’s Little One for One Drop was held from July 3-6, so the dates can’t be to blame for the smaller turnout.

This year’s prize pool for the Little One for One Drop is $4,046,400, of which $637,539 will go to the winner. Last year, Brian Yoon won $663,727 at a tough final table.

At the start of the second day of action on July 4, 2014, 885 players remained. Just the top 468 will earn some sort of cash prize. Near the top of the chip counts were Ray Henson, Jason Wheeler, Maurice Hawkins, Matt Glantz and Antonio Esfandiari.

Stay tuned to for a full recap of the event.
