Colman Wins Big One for One Drop; Negreanu Finishes 2nd

Daniel Colman wins the 2014 Big One for One Drop

Daniel Colman extended his chip lead after the second break and the two finally played a big hand when Daniel Negreanu was down more than 4-to-1.

Negreanu moved all-in preflop and Colman quickly quickly to set off the fireworks.

Colman was behind with K Q against A 4 and fell further when the flop came A J 4. Both groups of fans were screaming loudly for their guy’s card to come.

Negreanu’s two pair was looking good until the dealer put out the T on the turn.

The crowd in the stands exploded when the gutshot hit for Colman and Negreanu’s fans began yelling for the dealer to pair the board.

The full house wasn’t meant to be as the river came 7 and Negreanu was unlucky to settle for his second runner-up performance of the summer.

Negreanu picked up $8,288,001 for his second place finish while Colman added $15,306,668 to his bankroll along with a really nice bracelet.

It should come as no shock that Colman was able to win one of the biggest buy-in tournaments in history. He has the results to back it up over his short career.

This isn’t Colman’s first high-roller victory but it is his best. He took down the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller in this past April for €1,539,300.

Colman also has a WCOOP High Roller Heads Up title and runner-up SCOOP High Roller Heads up finish on PokerStars. He earned his first bracelet and accolades which go along with it.

    1st - Daniel Colman - $15,306,668
    2nd - Daniel Negreanu - $8,288,001
    3rd - Christoph Vogelsang - $4,480,001

Colman Leads During Break

Dan Colman
Colman takes the lead.

The biggest pot of the tournament was played just before the second break.

Daniel Negreanu was in the lead but he quickly dropped and will have some work ahead of him to capture his seventh WSOP bracelet.

The 60 million chip pot was built with constant pressure from Daniel Colman and Negreanu check/calling the progressively bigger bets all the way down.

Colman tossed out 18 million with the board reading J 8 4 A 4 and Negreanu took his time making a decision.

Negreanu played it up to the crowd and eventually called to see Colman table A 4 for a full house.

Those chips were sent to Colman who holds a nice advantage before the next level.

Swapping Leads

Big One for One Drop heads-up
Negreanu and Colman heads up for the bracelet.

The lead has changed several times during heads up play with each having a nice advantage at different times.

Daniel Negreanu regained the lead on just the fifth hand of heads up play in a 16 million chip pot without a showdown. He extended that lead and was soon ahead 2-to-1 against Daniel Colman.

The status didn’t change for another dozen hands until they found a hand to build a 15 million chip pot before the flop.

They each put in another 9 million after the 3 2 2 flop before checking it down to the river.

Colman showed A J and his Ace-high was good for the massive pot. The hand switched the chip counts to Colman’s favor. Temporarily.

The swings continued just six hands later when Negreanu took the lead once again by winning a 37 million chip pot.

Negreanu moved all-in on the turn for less than the size of the pot with the board showing 8 3 2 Q. Colman released his hand to give up the lead.

Christoph Vogelsang Eliminated in 3rd ($4,480,001)

Christoph Vogelsang
Vogelsang out in 3rd.

Christoph Vogelsang’s comeback fell short after the big chopped pot with Daniel Negreanu. The German lasted just a few more hands before he was all-in preflop.

Daniel Colman and Negreanu both called to see the 8 6 2 flop before they checked down the 6 turn and 4 river. Negreanu showed 5 5 which was better than Vogelsang’s Ace-high and he was gone in 3rd place for $4,480,001.

The two Daniels now turn their attention to heads-up action with Negreanu guaranteed to at least top the all-time money list. Colman leads but “Kid Poker” is not far behind.

Dramatic Chop

Christoph Vogelsang
Vogelsang gets chopped.

There were few big hands since the start of three-handed play until Daniel Negreanu and Christoph Vogelsang combined for some drama.

Negreanu opened from the button before Vogelsang shoved from the small blind after consideration. Daniel Colman moved out of the way and Negreanu asked for a count.

The dealer counted out xxxxxx and Negreanu quickly called but was behind with K T.

Vogelsang was holding K J and the outs switched on the A Q 8 flop. Negreanu was now looking for a Jack while Vogelsang could improve with a Ten.

The crowd was on their feet from the start of the hand but the yelling increased when Negreanu added a flush draw plus chop out when the turn came 5.

It was a chop card 5 which saved Negreanu some chips and kept Vogelsang from getting back in the game.

Rick Salomon Eliminated in 4th ($2,800,000)

Rick Salomon
Salomon eliminated in 4th.

Rick Salomon was fighting to get his chiplead back after losing a big hand to Christoph Vogelsang. The former movie producer picked up some pots with big bets before running into Daniel Colman.

Salomon open-shoved for 13 million with 8 8 and was called by Colman on the button with A T. He had a near 50/50 chance to double back into the mix but the flop was unkind.

The dealer ran out T T 3 to give Colman trip Tens and they held until the end. Salomon was an unlikely leader at the start of the final table but was unable to ride it to a win. He will take home the $2,800,000 consolation prize for 4th place.

The action today has been busier than anticipated. Six players were eliminated before the first break, two hours (42 hands) into the day. Negreanu continues to lead and is looking very confident.

Tobias Reinkemeier out in 5th.

Tobias Reinkemeier was lucky to move up a spot in the payouts with Seiver’s exit but he was all-in three hands later with Daniel Negreanu and Christoph Vogelsang coming along.

Negreanu bet into the side pot after the 9 8 7 flop to Vogelsang out of the hand. He showed Q T for a nearly unbeatable flush against Reinkemeier’s second pair J 8.

No miracle and the German pro picked up $2,053,334 for his 5th place while Negreanu continues to extend his lead.

Scott Seiver out in 6th.

It certainly looked like Tobias Reinkemeier was going to be the next one out after losing most of his stack but Scott Seiver beat him to the cage.

Reinkemeier three-bet shoved with 5 5 but was way behind when Daniel Colman instantly called with A A. He found no help on the board and was down to just two big blinds.

Reinkemeier let his next hand go before Seiver called all-in against Daniel Negreanu on the J T 9 flop with second pair and a flush draw. Negreanu was ahead with top pair and dodged Seiver’s out to send the pro out.

Seiver picked up $1,680,000 for his 6th place finish while Negreanu moved further into the lead.

Paul Newey Eliminated in 7th ($1,418,667)

Paul Newey
Paul Newey eliminated in 7th.

Paul Newey began the final day with the shortest stack but did well to make the money and move up the counts. His work was undone when he called an all-in from Tobias Reinkemeier with K Q.

The German was ahead with A J and the hand held to knock Newey down to two big blinds. Those went in the middle in a three-way pot where Rick Salomon turned a flush to send the UK hedge fund manager out in 7th spot.

Just before Newey lost most of his stack, Christoph Vogelsang found a huge double against former chipleader Salomon. It was the only all-in hand not called pre-flop.

Vogelsang moved all-in on the river with the boar showing A 7 7 9 5 and Salomon instantly called with trip Sevens 8 7. He was sent to the bottom of the leaderboard when Vogelsang tabled his flopped full house A 7.

The hand moved Vogelsang into the lead and left Salomon short.
