Dan Colman Wins Yet Another Poker Event

by | Published: Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Before April, hardly anyone would have been able to tell you who Dan Colman was. But with three big poker event wins under his belt in just five months, he’s become a household name in the poker world.

dan colman seminole hard rock poker open winnerA win in April’s European Poker Tour Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller was his introduction to the community, but Colman didn’t stop there. Since then, the 23 year-old has completed one of the most dominant runs in poker history.

Colman, who went on to win the World Series of Poker $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop in July as well as finishing runner-up in last month’s EPT Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller, added another $1,446,710 to his yearly winnings on Wednesday when he beat a field of 1,499 players to take out the $5,300 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open.

Colman outlasted a tough final table to claim his staggering fourth seven-figure score of 2014. He now has more than $20,000,000 in cashes since April under his belt, and has climbed past Phil Ivey into third place on poker’s all-time list behind Daniel Negreanu and Antonio Esfandiari.

2014 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Results

Seat Player Prize
1 Dan Colman $1,446,710
2 Mike Leah $1,047,638
3 Shawn Cunix $748,313
4 John Dolan $548,763
5 Joe Kuether $424,044
6 Martin Hanowski $324,269

Colman didn’t begin Wednesday’s final table in the lead, he had to work for it. He trailed to Mike Leah in chips but it didn’t take the poker wunderkind long to command the table. After John Dolan eliminated Martin Hanowski in 6th place, Colman got all of Joe Kuether’s chips. Dolan himself exited a few hands later, and his strike also came from Colman.

It then came down to three-handed play, with the lead shifting back into Leah’s favor.  However, Colman reclaimed the pole position after eliminating Shawn Cunix in 3rd place.

Colman then took 25,450,000 into heads-up play against Leah’s 19,550,000. The heads-up sit-and-go specialist, who has become known for his impressive knack for closing the deal, grinded Leah down to 11,500,000 before finishing him for good.

Dan Colman is undoubtedly becoming a fantastic professional poker player. Where will he strike next? How many more wins will he add to his season belt? Only time will tell. But one thing for sure, the entire poker world will be watching his every move with anticipation and excitement.

Online Registration for WSOP Asia-Pacific Events Now Open!

by | Published: Thursday, September 4th, 2014

In just one month, the World Series of Poker will host the second edition of its WSOP Asia-Pacific. Taking place at Australia’s Crown Casino Melbourne from October 2-18, the series will feature 10 gold bracelet events. Last year’s event saw five awarded, so with five more added to this year’s schedule it is likely to be an even bigger event.

2014 WSOP Asia PacificWith buy-ins ranging from as low as AU$1,100 up to AU$25,000, all poker players have the chance to attend this exciting event. The series kicks off with the AU$1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Accumulator on October 2 but the highlight of the series will undoubtedly be the AU$10,000 Main Event, which will have two starting days beginning on October 12. Players are able to register for the series online via Crown Poker’s website, which means you won’t have to wait in line or risk being put on an alternative list.

Daniel Negreanu won last year’s Main Event for AU$1,038,825, and his fifth gold bracelet win helped him become the 2013 WSOP Player of the Year. Will he return to the series? What other big names in the professional poker community will make the trek down under? Since this year’s WSOP Asia-Pacific will be the culmination of the 2014 Player of the Year race, many big-name players are expected to make the trip, including Negreanu (who currently sits fourth on the POY leaderboard), Brandon Shack-Harris (first), and George Danzer (second) in a bid to earn final points. Imagine who you could be rubbing shoulders with.

“Bigger and better is the best way to describe the 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “New events at modest price points like the Dealer’s Choice and Terminator No-Limit Hold’em, plus an expansion of overall events and a move to springtime in Melbourne is designed to encourage the North American and European contingent to make this a can’t-miss event. Plus, we have secured the most comprehensive live television coverage in both the U.S. and Australia for both the Main Event and High Roller.”

Both the WSOP and Crown Melbourne are prepared to help book your trip to Australia and the handy online registration means you’re guaranteed a seat with ease. This is a stop not to be missed, even if you just go to watch the pros in action.
