Two of poker’s hottest players will compete for a $1.4 million top prize at the final table of the $10 Million guaranteed Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open. Mike Leah, who has racked up four titles on the live circuit already in 2014, will take the chip lead into the final day, while Big One for One Drop champion and recent EPT Barcelona Super High Roller runner-up Daniel Colman will enter the final table second in chips.
2014 Card Player Player of the Year contenders Mike Leah and Dan Colman come into the final table as the two largest stacks while 2010 November Niner John Dolan while bring the shortest stack into the final table.
Take a look at the chip counts:
Mike Leah – 15,455,000
Dan Colman – 10,230,000
Joe Kuether – 7,090,000
Martin Hanowski – 5,210,000
Shawn Cunix – 4,870,000
John Dolan – 2,045,000
Day 4 began with 18 players eyeing the final table. It didn’t take long for the eliminations to pile up as Michael Stembera, Uri Kadosh, Jacob Naquin, Ronald Ostraw, Farhad Madhani and Matthw Sedgeman were sent packing within the first 75 minutes of the day.
2012 November Niner Russell Thomas entered the day as a short stack and was able to double his stack early on, but Thomas ultimately fell in 13th place. Leah min-raised to 120,000 and Thomas three-bet to 330,000. Leah then four-bet to 650,000 and Thomas moved all-in for 2,400,000. Leah called and it was off to the races.
After the eliminations of Natasha Barbout (12th – $99,775), Curt Kohlberg (11th – $99,775), Lenny Duvdivani (10th – $99,775), Roman Valerstein (9th – $149,663), and Brian Hawkins (8th – $199,550), Mid-Stakes Poker Tour Ambassador Blake Bohn landed directly on the final table bubble — and it was again Leah who handled the dirty work. With the blinds at 60,000/120,000/20,000, Leah raised and Bohn moved all in for around 830,000. Leah thought it over for a few minutes before having the clock called on him by Colman, and eventually Leah decided he was priced in to call.
This will be Mike Leah’s sixth final table of the year, with three titles won already. Dan Coloman would eclipse the $20 million in live tournament earnings mark in 2014 alone if he were to finish in fourth place or higher. Colman has made five final tables as well, with the highlights being his wins in the European Poker Tour Grand Final super high roller and the Big One For One Drop at the WSOP. World Poker Tour champ Shawn Cunix and 2013 Arizona State Poker Championship winner Joe Kuether will also be in the hunt for this prestigious title when play resumes at on Wednesday.
