Daniel Colman, 23, is the winner of the second $1,000,000 buy-in BIG ONE for ONE DROP! The final table action lasted for 118 hands and Colman defeated no one else than Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu heads-up to nab the bracelet and a bank-busting $15.3 million in prize money. Colman, better known as heads-up sit-n-go specialist "mrgr3n13", battled Negreanu for 46 hands before an epic all-in occurred...
Negreanu limped the button and Colman made it four million. Negreanu shoved for 20.85 million and Colman instantly called.
Negreanu: A4 Colman: kQ
The flop came down JA4 and Negreanu hit two pairs of aces and fours. The turn card 10 was a terrible card for Negreanu as Colman made a straight. The river card was the 7 and "KidPoker" had been eliminated in second place for $8,288,001 (the largest score of his career).
Final table results:
1st: Daniel Colman - $15,306,668 2nd: Daniel Negreanu - $8,288,001 3rd: Christoph Vogelsang - $4,480,000 4th: Rick Salomon - $2,800,000 5th: Tobias Reinkemeier - $2,053,334 6th: Scott Seiver - $1,680,000 7th: Paul Newey - $1,418,667 8th: Cary Katz - $1,306,667 9th: Tom Hall - Bubble boy
Colman was not available for comment after the tournament, but WSOP's Jessica Welman talked with Daniel Negreanu about his runner-up finish.
Money raised for charity
This year's BIG ONE for ONE DROP drew a field of 42 players that gernerated a prize pool of $37,333,338. Thanks to $111,111 from each $1,000,000 buy-in going towards the water equality organisation One Drop, the tournament raised $4.6 million for charity! Since One Drop and WSOP teamed up 3 years ago, over $11 million has been raised for charity!
Yeah congratulations to Dan Colman for winning it in a tough field and he even manage to beats Daniel, hope Daniel would win but you never get what you wished for and nice showdown for the final hands, cheers A4o vs KQo was a flip and unlucky for Daniel. Anyway hope to see some more poker soon as World Cup is on a pause now and i have nothing to watch lol. Cheers have fun guys at the tables!
Despite nine players starting Day 3 (and the bubble very much in force), it took just under six hours for Daniel Colman to emerge victorious. A relative newcomer to the live scene - his first major score was back in April when he won the EPT Super High Roller for $2.1 million - Colman was able to parlay his 22,625,000 starting stack into a title winning haul after defeating Daniel Negreanu heads-up.
It's the first time that I heard about Dan Colman, is he just another poker player who satellited to this event. Well, unlucky Negranu but it's really sick that a 1M$ tournament only lasted 118 hands in the final table. It's awsome that the tournament raised $4.6 million for charity! Since One Drop and WSOP teamed up 3 years ago, over $11 million has been raised for charity!
This is a final hand to remember for Negreanu for the rest of his life. And this is a hand every online players who talk about rigged poker should take a look too. I cant watch the vid now but I would like to see Daniel's face when the 10 hit the table...
unlucky for daniel negreanu but that 8 million dollar haul for second place will make up some bit for not taking the tourney down,it also puts him no 1 in the all time poker winnings at a little over 38 million dollars,also gratz to dan coleman on winning
