The King of the Hill III - Logo on white background.  Year is 2017.Daniel Colman, who is probably best known for his $15,306,668 win in the 2014 "Big One for One Drop" at the 2014 World Series of Poker, outlasted Brandon Adams to take down the third edition of Poker Night in America's "King of the Hill" Event earlier today.

Unlike in 2014, Colman actually seemed happy to win this time around, as he proudly displayed the "King of the Hill" belt after defeating Brandon Adams in the final match.

With his victory, Colman joins Phil Hellmuth and Olivier Busquet as "King of the Hill" winners.


The four man, winner-take-all event saw Brandon Adams and Scott Blumstein square off in one semi-final match, while Colman and Busquet played in the other. Busquet, who is likely one of the very best heads-up players in the world, was unable to overcome Colman, while Blumstein fell to Brandon Adams.

Colman had the advantage heading into the final match, as had him at 1.70 to win, while Brandon Adams was listed at 2.19.

In the end, Colman proved to be too much, as he ended up outlasting the very game Brandon Adams to take down the title.


The third "King of the Hill" event was hosted by the Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and streamed on Poker Night in America's channel.
