Poker Life Podcast: Daniel Colman

This week on the Poker Life Podcast, Joey sits down with Daniel Colman

Dan Colman first broke onto the poker scene in 2013 when he became the first player in history to win over $1 million playing heads up hypers in a single year. After playing under the name “mrGR33N13” on PokerStars and “riyyc225” on Full Tilt, Dan turned his focus to live tournaments.

Dan had an absolutely massive 2014, starting with a win in the EPT Monte Carlo €100,000 Super High Roller for €1.5 million, but that was just the start. After a 3rd place finish in the $10k WSOP Heads Up event Dan shipped the $1 million buy in Big One for One Drop for over $15 million. Colman added two more 7 figure cashes in the summer of 2014, eventually settling on $21 million in earnings for the calendar year. Not surprisingly, Dan won BLUFF Magazine player of the year.

Dan now resides in Rio de Janiero, Brazil, where he presumably has a mansion filled with furniture made of crisp $100 bills.
