Justin Bonomo, poker’s all-time money winner who lit 2018 on fire with more than $25M in live earnings, was one of the biggest winners of the weekend on PokerStars.
Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo
After just four and a half hours of play, Bonomo emerged victorious from the 194-entry $5,200 Turbo Series High Roller to bank $192,427. He defeated Finland’s “elmerixx” heads-up, outlasting a final table which also included Conor “1_conor_b_1” Beresford, Chris “ImDaNuts” Oliver and Orpen “OrpTheTurk” Kisacikoglu.
After winning $149,300 for his runner-up finish, “elmerixx” also went on to win the High Roller Club’s $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for an additional $58,131, bringing his total Sunday winnings up over the $200K mark.
The new look $109 Sunday Million continues to smash its $1M guarantee, with 12,371 entries yesterday creating a $1.23 million prize pool.
After more than 14 hours of play it was Germany’s “strongwill81” who came out on top, taking it down with no deal to bank $124,602. Heading in to the day, “strongwill81” had just over $40K in online cashes, according pocketfives.com. It’s safe to say that this massive score will be a major reason for celebration!
