Preflop, final table, four handed, with the blinds at 100,000 and 200,000 and a 25,000 ante, Coleman raised to 425,000 from the button and Sinishtaj called from the big blind. On the flop Sinishtaj bet 550,000, Coleman raised to 1,500,000, Sinishtaj went all-in, and Coleman called.


Coleman tanked for quite awhile after Sinishtaj moved in on the flop. He probably had a read that Sinishtaj was confident in his holding, and most players would be with K-8 on that flop against an aggressive player on the button. Eventually he called, and Coleman’s due diligence was rewarded with an ugly runout that gave his opponent a spectacular backdoor flush. Sinishtaj catapulted to the chip lead while Coleman was left with under 3 big blinds. Coleman busted out the next hand, earning $217,686 for his 4th place finish. Initially Coleman burst on the scene with a flurry of high roller results, but his deep run in the 2016 WSOP main event, this run to 3rd in a 1,207 field, and his victory over a hefty 1,499 field in another Seminole event demonstrates that Coleman can thrive in deep fields as well as small ones.
