Simply incredible! Dan Colman has scored big in yet another major tournament! The 23-year-old American pro, the winner of the 2014 Big One for One Drop, extended his already massive bankroll with $1.4 million by topping a field of 1,499 players in the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $10 million guaranteed Main Event!
Colman surpassed Phil Ivey (21m) on the All Time Live Tournament Earnings List with this win. He's now in third position (21.3m) behind Daniel Negreanu ($29.6 m) and Antonio Esfandiari (25.9m)! It's amazing how just a cuple of months on the tournament circuit can take one to the top of the All Time Live Tournament Earnings List!
Yes, you heard right: he has played six final tables this year and scored $20,980,768 in earnings! Besides the win of the 2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event (1,499 players), most of his previous scores this year have come in smaller, but extremely tough, fields such as the Super High Roller events and the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop!
There are plenty of major tournaments to be played in the remaining four months of this year. It will be interesting to see if his amazing heater will continue! Maybe he will be able to catch up with Esfandiari and Negreanu on the money list?
