I write on the top poker players bios. It changes before you know it. Yesterday, Phil Ivey was the top dog, Daniel Negreanu and others. Today I believe Dan Colman is the top dog of the poker world. And I also think he will come to rule the poker world. He is similar to Phil Ivey in one sense. He started playing and winning tournaments at the age of 18. With each year has brought bigger and bigger accomplishments. The apex of his poker career presently was the 2014 Big One for One Drop which saw him go heads up against Negreanu and emerge champ with a take home of over $15,000,0000.
He continues to rock the poker world. His earnings this year,2017, alone are over $1,000,000+.
Online his alias was mrGR33N13 or Mr Greenie on PokerStars where he was a high volume grinder.
There’s a cool video of his playing theory. In this video I think it’s cool he says if he’s not feeling it, he’ll just say fuck it and not play even if he’s flown around the world for a tournament!
He stated getting to this level the hard way. He started off at 16 with poker and sports betting. He gravitated to heads up but he also said he would go broke time after time. But on Fulltilt he went up to a $50,000 bankroll but lost it. He became comfortable with big bankrolls.
One thing in the video is he says he wants to play the best people. Phil Ivey has stated the same thing. Playing with the best players out there will only give added confidence that you can be the best. Winners are always looking at angles to win tournaments.
He got better from trial and error. No coaches or anything else. He says he really attributes his success to focusing completely on the game. He took his game seriously and started winning from that point on.
If you played with him he would use the chat box often.
Colman is a resident of Brazil and the US. A tactical move since there is less income tax and he keeps more of the millions he has earned. It’s a smart move for all those considering going professional – keep as much of your money you can.
