The WSOP is planning a tournament beyond anything we've ever seen before in the world of high stakes poker, a tournament with a $1 million buy-in!!! That's right a 1 with 6 zeros. The event will help raise money for providing clean drinking water in Third World Countries and is scheduled to start on July 1, 2012.

So far there's a mix of billionaire businessmen and profesiional poker players that have said they'll play. Treasure Island hotel-casino owner Phil Ruffin, Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte, MGM Resorts International executive Bobby Baldwin and poker professionals Johnny Chan, Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius.  It will be interesting to see who else joins the field!

With all of those billionaire non-poker players I feel like a million dollars is a reasonable buy-in for the mega star pros to take on players who are basically dead money. Still though $1 million is a lot for any poker player to put up for one tournament.

If I were these pro's I'd pool our money together and help stake a great player.
The ends don't justify the means.
