Poker is the kind of game that many play, but not all succeed. However, if you are looking for big prizes, this is definitely the right place to be. Local, regional and world tournaments are life changing due to the rewords they offer. Such an example is the case of Daniel Colman, who won $15 million in one night at the World Series of Poker.
The poker events represent a great opportunity for passionate players to reveal their talent and skills. Not everybody is ready to face the pressure of this competition, thus only the best can go home with their pockets full.
The One Drop Event
One Drop was launched in 2007 by the founder of the famous Cirque du Soleil. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of the parts of the world where water and sanitation system represent a luxury. At the same time, it wanted to raise money for this cause.
In 2012, the One Drop tournament became the host for 48 poker elites, and business people donated $111,111 for every million-dollar entry fee. The mixture of the games of luck with the charity cause leads to a well-deserved win-win situation.
Daniel Colman is a young professional poker player from Mass. He mainly plays online to develop his skills in a controlled environment. In order to maximize his opportunities, he also lived in Rio de Janeiro and Montreal. He does not like to expose himself to the media. Colman is the type of guy who comes and does his job and then leaves quietly.
Though Colman does not like to speak to the media, from his point of view, poker is a game where many people are prone to lose. Though he does not promote this game in a positive manner, it can be easily concluded that such a success requires:
- long hours of practice
- the capability to restrain your emotions
The event started at 3 P.M. and lasted until 4 A.M. As it can be seen, winning over $15 million in one night is not a piece of cake. You need to be able to keep yourself focused not only on your hand, but on the hands of all players who join your table. Daniel Colman managed to do it calmly, thus it is definitely an example worthy to follow.
