Benjamine Keeline makes biggest comeback known to poker, wins Colossus II for $1 million

Benjamine Keeline, who was working as an Uber driver last year, won the $565 Colossus II No-Limit Hold'em tournament at the World Series of Poker.

 

 

The Colossus knew six starting days, accumalating a total of 21,613 entries, building a total prize pool of $10,806,500. Nine of these players were guaranteed $92,291, with $1 million for the winner.

 

 

Keeline had almost given up poker, but saved two bullets for the Colossus. His first bullet wasn't a succes, and his second one seemed not to be as well. At the end of the first day, he got kings all-in against aces, and was down to a single ante worth 500. However, he made the biggest comeback ever and managed to win the tournament!
