However, Colman's career began in virtual poker environments. Using the pseudonyms "mrGR33N13" and "riyyc225", in 2013 the pro became the first player in history to win $ 1,000,000 in Hyper-Turbo events in a single year, achieving the feat in just 9 months of tournaments. The following year, more precisely in April 2014, Colman managed to win the € 100,000 Super High Roller during the grand final of the European Poker Tour in Monte Carlo, taking up the total amount of US $ 1,539,300.

The year 2014 was such a big win for Colman that he ended up adding seven more digits that summer. One of the professional's greatest achievements was being present at the EPT 2014 Super High Roller € 50,000 and earning an amount of US $ 1,120,186. Shortly after, the pro also attended the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open and cleared a field of 1,499 entries to earn more than the amount of $ 1,146,710. However, the ace did not tire and still did well during the month of October while participating in the WPT Alpha 8 Super High Roller and took home the amount of US $ 990,000. Thus, the player has already added up to 21 million with poker alone.
With all his achievements, Dan Colman received the 2014 BLUFF Player of the Year Award. After three years, Colman's piggy bank was making $ 28 million in prizes billed to poker. However, today the player has more than $ 29 million in his bankroll. In addition, the professional has a residency in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Much of Colman's highlight was that he managed to outperform professional Daniel Negreanu. The Canadian player is known for being voted the best poker player of the decade, according to the Global Poker Index.
Daniel Negreanu

Negreanu has an extremely rich history in the poker environment. Known as "Kid Poker", the professional in 2019 was the third biggest live tournament winner of all time, second only to Justin Bonomo and Bryn Kenney. According to information, Daniel Negreanu already has more than US $ 42 million in cash, just with the poker prizes. In addition, the Canadian was also named the WSOP Player of the Year in 2004 and 2013, being the only professional to receive the award more than once. However, Negreanu has also won the 2004 and 2005 WPT Player of the Year award. In addition, Daniel is also the first professional to have survived three final tables from three different WSOP locations (Las Vegas, Europe and Asia-Pacific) and still win a bracelet in each of the events. Negreanu's entire career has led him to be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame.
