Share this

Daniel Colman beat Dan Cates heads-up in the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller for over $2.1 million in April. Colman just made it through the field of 42 in the $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop and his final heads-up competition for the first place prize of $15,306,668 was Daniel Negreanu. Colman is better known as a heads-up sit-n-go specialist, running under the handle of “mrgr33n13,” but after scoring this victory, he may have a new title.

Final Results:

1Daniel Colman$15,306,668
2Daniel Negreanu$8,288,001
3Christoph Vogelsang$4,480,001
4Rick Salomon$2,800,000
5Tobias Reinkemeier$2,053,334
6Scott Seiver$1,680,000
7Paul Newey$1,418,667
8Cary Katz$1,306,607

Colman and Negreanu danced for 46 hands before the music stopped for good. The chip lead controlled the beat as the heads-up match went back and forth in the beginning but Colman began to pull away.

When Hand #118 was dealt, Negreanu button limped and Colman made it four million to go. Negreanu pushed all-in for 20.85 million and Colman instantly called.

Negreanu: {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Colman: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The flop brought the {J-Spades}{A-Hearts}{4-Spades} and shot Negreanu out into the lead with two pair. Colman had an inside draw to a Broadway straight. Just like it had eyes, the {10-Spades} popped off on the turn and Colman had his out.

Negreanu needed help — an ace or a four on the river — to make a full house and keep his Big One for One Drop dream alive. The {7-Spades} came on the river and "KidPoker" was runner-up for $8,288,001 in prize money which is the largest score of his career and also sends him to the top of the all-time live tournament money winner. Negreanu has a three million dollar lead on the inaugural ONE DROP winner, Antonio Esfandiari.

Congratulations Daniel Colman! Colman apparently refused to participate in the picture taking and video ceremonies that are customary after a World Series of Poker gold bracelet win.
