Daniel Colman Wins HK$250,000 Buy-in Event in Manila
Daniel Colman, Erik Seidel.
Posted on 20 February 2017 by "T".
Some of the poker world's brightest shining stars competed in the 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series Manila HK$250,000 (approx. $32.2k) 6-Max Event over the weekend. The event drew a field of 43 entries, including 8 re-entries, which generated a prize pool of HK$10,113,600. It took just about 12 hours of play on the second day to boil down a very talented field of poker pros into just one player: Daniel Colman.
Colman (4th on the all-time money list with more than $27.5 million) defeated fellow countryman Erik Seidel (2nd on the all-time money list). After eliminating Germany's Rainer Kempe in 3rd place, Colman started the heads up battle against Seidel with a 2-1 chip advantage. The duel was short but packed with action as Seidel gained momentum to take the lead at one point. After just about 30 minutes of play, though, it was Colman who had won a key hand and managed to eliminate Seidel.
On the last hand, both players moved all in before the flop: Colman with AJ and Seidel with A6. The board ran out Q J J A 2 and Colman took home the final pot with a full house. Colman received the first prize of HK$3,641,600 while Seidel collected HK$2,326,000 for his runner up finish.
Final table results:
1 Daniel Colman, USA, HK$3,641,600 (USD$473,408(
2 Erik Seidel, USA, HK$2,326,000 (USD$302,380)
3 Rainer Kempe, Germany, HK$1,466,000 (USD $190,580)
4 Sergio Aido, Spain, HK$1,011,000 USD ($131,430)
5 Timofey Kuznetsov, Russia, HK$708,000 (USD$92,040)
6 Mustapha Kanit, Italy, HK$556,000 (USD$72,280)
7 Mikita Badziakouski, Belarus, HK$405,000 (USD$52,650)

| well this is nice- at least for once when i read the names of the final tables i see more than one which i recognize. this can only mean that very well known "poker pros" have what it takes to actually win some cash aside from their side income giving all the couching's and mentoring's to all who want to make millions fro the thin air.|

| Nice story. However the thing that caught my attention was the name of the sponsor. Triton. Where I come from Triton make showers! Is this the same Triton or am I getting confused with some other huge international conglomerate that just so happens to have the same name as a shower maker? Cards in the shower? waterproof cards? Now there's a game for a few people to play!|

| If you had the money for this tournament it looked good to be in it.|
43 participants with 7 paid places and the last one with 52k.
A profit of 20k for your buy in, or a loss with a rebuy.
Nice cash for the first place.
I find the tournaments with a small player field more stressful somehow.

| Daniel Colman... I remember this guy. |
Didn't he take down the $1,000,000 buy-in Big One for One Drop at the 2014 World Series of Poker? Well, congratulations again, Daniel! He is still young and his future looks bright.

| Many congratulations to Daniel Colman on winning this super high roller tournament. This was an extremely tough final table so he must have played really well to come out on top |

| The final hand of cards rather traditional ... I like gaming probably occur every day .... Only the winning amount is less)))))))))))))))))))))))))) )))))))))))) but of course the player runner-up played well but he was unlucky ...............|

| Well congratulations to Daniel Colman on yet another big tournament win on his record. He is a luckbox but he's also a very good player that picks his spot well and has a very good table image to make some big bluffs when needed.|
Erik Seidel is also one of my favorite player, so consistant plays like a machine but also creative when he needs to be.
