The 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series Manila HK$ 250,000 6-Max Event came to a close with American Daniel Colman in the top spot, winning HK$3,641,600 (roughly $473,408 USD). Colman battled big-time poker player Erik Seidel in heads up play, but managed to come out on top after two long days of play.
When the final day began, Timofey Kuznetsov of Russia was the leading player and slowly built his stack as the first players of the day bite the dust. After a few eventful hours of play, Richard Young, founder of Triton, found himself in the bubble spot when he was eliminated in eighth place with no money prize after Sergio Aido of Spain got a flush to bust his A,J suited.
The final table saw Rainer Kempe in the lead with twice as many chips as his closest competitor, Mustapha Kanit. Neither would make it to three-handed play after a dramatic turn of the table.
Kaint was the first to score a major hand, tripling his stack and eliminating Mikita Badziakouski of Belarus almost as soon as the final table began. Badziakouski held an A,10 and called a shove from Seidel with an A,K. The king paired on the flop and the seventh-place winner earned $52,650.
Kanit’s run didn’t last long, and he was eliminated next when he shoved all in from the small blind on an A,K and was called by Aido. Aido had a Q,8 but managed to find a queen on the river and eliminate the Italian for $72,280. Seidel got in on the good luck next when he eliminated Kuznetsov in fifth place, his pocket eights taking the K,2 suited.
Aido was the shortest stack when it came down to the last four and he wasn’t able to stage a comeback despite a double up. Colman got his first elimination when his K,7 suited took out the Spaniard’s 7,6. The final three players traded the lead a number of times but it was former chip leader Kempe who couldn’t take the heat. When he had just three big blinds left, he went all in on pocket queens but was bested by Colman’s lesser A,6 suied.
When head’s up play began, Colman had almost twice the chips as his opponent. It was just a half an hour later that the last hand began after a series of back-and-forth lead changes. A big hand claimed by Colman won him the lead again, and it was when Seidel shoved on an off-suit A,6 that he fell. Colman’s suited A,J turned into a full house by the turn and the tournament came to an end.
