When talking about Dan Colman, the juiciest part of his story begins in 2014. He began that year with a seven-figure score, winning the €100,000 Super High Roller at the EPT Grand Final for a cool €1,539,300. That was, by far, Colman's biggest result at the time, but that would not be the case for long. A couple months later, he took down the $1 million Big One for One Drop, pocketing $15,306,668 after defeating Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu in the heads-up match to secure one of the few eight-figure paydays that have ever been awarded in poker. In total, Colman has accumulated more than $26 million in live earnings, which puts him in fourth place on poker’s all-time money list. In his time away from the live felt, Colman can sometimes be found dominating high-stakes heads-up SnGs under the moniker "mrGR33N13".

Bryn Kenney continues to bolster his record as the most successful $100,000 Super High Roller in The Bahamas. He's now locked up his fourth cash out of the seven tournaments that have met the criteria. He started his collection with a third-place finish worth $643,000 in 2011, then repeated that result in 2014 for another $873,880. His best performance came last year when he emerged victorious, beating the 58-entry field to scoop the prestigious title and the top prize of $1,687,800. Kenney's total earnings from those three events exceed $3.2 million, putting him in the top spot on the virtual PokerStars $/€100k Super High Roller all-time money list. The 30-year-old from Long Beach was one of the last entries into the field, jumping straight into Day 2 in defense of his title. Kenney has been doing well even in another destinations. Just two months ago, he banked $1.4 million for a runner-up finish in the Triton Super High Roller in the Philippines. Kenney's career earnings will break the $12-million mark tomorrow as he continues to climb his way through the top 20 on the USA's all-time money list.
Byron Kaverman's first huge live poker success came six years ago in the Bahamas when he won the $5,000 event for $320,840. Since then, the 30-year-old from Ohio has added close to $8 million to his résumé. Kaverman had a tremendous 2015, winning nearly $3.5 million. That heater included a title-winning campaign in the WSOP $10k NLH 6-Handed Championship, on a star-studded final table featuring Doug Polk, Fedor Holz, Thomas Muehloecker and Sam Greenwood. Kaverman beat all the heavyweights to collect more than $650,000 along with his first bracelet. He also won the 2015 Global Player of the Year race. And the American pro didn't slow down in 2016, either, notching five additional six-figure cashes. Kaverman has established himself among the high roller elite, crushing the $25,000 events that run semi-regularly in Las Vegas. He also has a PokerStars High Roller title under his belt from EPT12 Malta.
Charlie Carrel is a 23-year-old professional poker player from London, England. He’s usually pretty easy to pick out of a crowd, often decked out in brightly colored attire at the tables. He’s a colorful character metaphorically, too, his smiley extroversion falling right in line with his typical wardrobe choice. Carrel’s cheery exterior hides a monster of a poker player, though. He’s been playing live tournaments for less than three years, but he’s already amassed nearly $4 million in earnings, including a small handful of previous cashes at Atlantis Resort. He’s also experienced considerable online success prior to and during that stretch, playing as “Epiphany77” on PokerStars. Carrel is riding a serious heater over the last 14 months, in particular, and he'll enter Sunday's finale as the chip leader with nearly 100 big blinds.
Daniel Dvoress has been a fixture in PokerStars' highest buy-in live events since 2015. Back then, the 28-year-old from Toronto had already been renowned for his coaching sessions, widely considered to be one of the best poker mentors in the world. His breakthrough to the high-rolling waters came at EPT11 Malta, where he took €263,000 for third place in the €25,000 event. At that time, Dvoress had already recorded a deep run in the EPT11 Barcelona Main Event, finishing 17th for €54,700. He topped that result the following season when when he appeared on the EPT12 Malta final table, earning €91,550 for a seventh-place finish. In total, he's racked up more than $2.1 million in live cashes, good for 40th place on the Canadian all-time money list. Dvoress also cashed in the last year's edition of the Super High Roller here in the Bahamas; he walked away with a $286,920 seventh-place prize back in January 2016. That was Dvoress' biggest live cash until last November, when he secured close to $300,000 for a runner-up result in the 2016 Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) Macau High Roller. And he's a beast online too. Known as "Oxota" on PokerStars, Dvoress recently notched up a SCOOP title worth $317,911.
Connor Drinan is a 27-year-old professional poker player from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Drinan is part of an small and unfortunate group of players who are best known for taking a brutal bad beat on national television. Drinan got his first 15 minutes of fame when he had his pocket aces cracked by the other two aces (held by Cary Katz) in the inaugural $1,000,000 Big One For One Drop in 2014. It’s a shame, because his other tournament results are remarkable, as you’d expect of a man who’s putting up seven figures to enter events. Since 2011, Drinan has won more than $10 million in live tournaments, including a pair of side event victories that came two seasons apart at EPT Barcelona. He’s also accumulated countless wins and more than $3.5 million in earnings on PokerStars, playing under the screenname “blanconegro”.
Jason Koon is a 31-year-old professional poker player from Weston, West Virginia. He’s only been playing live tournament poker since 2008, a year in which he earned just less than $2,000 from the game. Since then, he’s gone on to earn more than $6 million, with nearly half of that coming during a career-best year in 2016. And a half-million of that has been won right here at Atlantis resort, including near misses in the $10,000 Main Event and $25,000 High Roller in consecutive years. Koon has quickly become a fixture in the richest poker events in the world, widely feared as one of the most dangerous players in any given tournament he enters.
