LAS VEGAS -- Daniel Colman let his poker play speak for itself.
Colman, a 23-year-old professional online poker player from Holden, Mass. (though he has lived in Montreal and Rio de Janeiro to maximize his online opportunities), won the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop event at the World Series of Poker on Tuesday night. First prize was worth $15,306,688 and Colman's first WSOP bracelet as he topped six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu in the final heads-up battle.
Colman ran off after doing the wrap-up interview for the ESPN broadcast of the event (July 29, Aug. 5 and Aug. 12), but Olivier Busquet, another online pro who has served as Colman's mentor and backer, said Colman doesn't like to do interviews and that he said in one interview that the focus should be on the charity. That's a good place to start.
