Daniel Colman Still Leads Event With 18 Players LeftPublished on June 29th, 2015 7:58 pm EST
The money bubble is approaching in the $111,111 High Roller for ONE DROP event.
The tournament ended up receiving a total of 135 entries, which means that the top 16 players will be paid a minimum of $251,653. The eventual winner of the event will walk away with $3,989,985, while the runner-up will take home $2,465,522.
Daniel Colman, who famously won last year's ONE DROP event, currently leads the tournament with just 18 players remaining. Colman finished as the Day 1 chip leader and has managed to maintain his lead throughout the beginning stages of Day 2.
As you can imagine in a $111,111 buy-in event, the competition is fierce and there are a number of big names who are currently chasing Colman, including Phil Hellmuth (third in chips), David Sands (6th in chips), Justin Bonomo (11th in chips) and Erik Seidel (16th in chips).
In addition, Brian Hastings, who has already won two bracelets this summer and also currently embroiled in a multi-accounting scandal, is alive and well in the event with a stack of 2.5 million chips (Colman, the chip leader, has nearly 7 million chips). Many eyes are on Hastings right now, partly due to his chase for his third bracelet of the summer, and also due to the multi-accounting situation.
This is a two-day event, meaning that the winner of the $111,111 High Roller for ONE DROP will be determined sometime this evening/early morning. Can Daniel Colman win again? Will Phil Hellmuth win the 15th World Series of Poker bracelet of his career? Will Brian Hastings win his third WSOP bracelet of the summer?
