WCOOP Heads-Up champion Daniel "mrgr33n13" Colman is about to get his best live result to date. His previous best cash was $194,000 in a TV tourney but he’s now guaranteed at least €241,000 for making the Super High Roller final.
Colman is considered one of the world’s best online tournament players, his speciality being Heads-Up Sit & Go’s; last September he won the WCOOP Heads-Up High Roller for $172,500.
Like many American online pros, Colman has had to relocated to continue playing online and now lives in Rio, Brazil. He has played around 25 EPTs and he’s never managed to get past Day 2 before now. This is his second huge buy-in event – he also played the WSOP One Drop $100,000 High Roller last summer. His total live winnings to date total $563,999.
