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