Colman Banks Another Major Win

Colman Banks Another Major Win

Thursday, 4 September 2014

He may not have been a firm fixture on the live poker scene for very long, but Daniel Colman has already pulled himself up to third in the all-time money list thanks to another seven-figure score.

After taking down this year's Big One for ONE DROP and banking $15,306,668 million, Colman went on to finish second in the latest EPT Super High Roller in Barcelona for another $1,118,479.

Fast-forward just two weeks and the young American has now added another $1,446,710 to his overall total after winning the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Main Event last night. After cruising past more than 1,400 players, Colman eventually clinched the title after his Ah Kd outpaced Mike Leah's Qc Jc on the final hand.

With that the 23-year-old was presented with his third title of 2014 as well as another bumper payout. In fact, since the start of 2014, Colman has banked a staggering $21,066,473 (he won $2,127,398 at the EPT Grand Final) which puts him just above Phil Ivey who has $21,457,074 in live earnings. Not only that, but his current run of form is one of the most impressive in the game's history and one that will see him go down in poker folklore.
