So we told you there was going to be a massive online poker tournament… well the only detail that we forgot is that Justin Bonomo was entering, so naturally, he managed to win it all.
The buy-in was $102,000, the stage this time was PartyPoker and the Prize was a cool $1.75 Million!
This two-day event saw the world’s best poker players post the buy-in to clash minds with each other… it all came down to this star-studded final few. The final 7 all made the money, with Sam Greenwood earning $212,500 for his finish, after Orpen Kisacikoglu bubbled, running AKo into Addamo’s pocket Kings in the Big Blind! What a cooler.
Bonomo went on a hot streak picking up chips as he knocked out businessman and high stakes poker veteran Dan Shak when his pocket Ten’s held up against Dan Shak’s AKo. The once chip leader when 5 handed was busted and Bonomo now had a sizable lead to apply some pressure with!
Bonomo went into the heads up a severe underdog against Australian High Stakes crusher Addamo, until this hand went down…
Addamo 3-Bet from the Big Blind and Bonomo peeled with his pocket pair and all the money went in on the Turn.
But Addamo wasn’t just going to lie down and take the Loss, he fought back for nearly 3 hours after being crippled in this huge pot.
The deck was just hitting Bonomo just too hard, with this hand a prime example, Justin flopping just a flush against Addamo’s top pair. The Austrailian wasn’t getting too sucked in though, with a Fold on the Turn that many players just wouldn’t make after flopping top pair in a heads up pot.
With Justin holding a near 2-1 lead and facing a limp of 300k from the Button of Addamo, He pushed all in for around 17BBs effective with his offsuit King High and managed to spike a King against the trap of pocket Queens from his cunning opponent.
Justin is a super tough opponent and when he is on a sun run like this one, I don’t think there is a player in the world that could have trumped him in this matchup. Well played to Addamo and unlucky! With commenter Nick Schulman stating he had the cleanest of all the performances on the day… he certainly gave Justin a run for his money!
There’s a hell of a lot to be learned from watching these masters at work. If you want to try and improve your final table game then check out some of the amazing play by watching the stream which is saved on the PartyPoker Twitch Channel here…
