After a grueling two-day action involving some of the world’s best high-rollers, the Super High Roller Bowl Online Main Event finally concluded this week, with Justin Bonomo being crowned as the ultimate winner, claiming his third SHRB title, a feat no other player had accomplished before.
Bonomo finished the day with $1,775,000 in winnings, with a brand-new title added to his already outstanding poker resume. He now has over $49 million in career prize money.
The event attracted 50 entries, each paying an entry fee of $102,000, generating a massive $15,000,000 prize pool. When Day 1 concluded, only 13 players proceeded to the final day, among them were familiar names in the high roller scene, such as David Peters, Sam Greenwood, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Ali Imsirovic, as well as Michael Addamo, who would later face Bonomo in an exciting heads-up battle.
The Main Event was streamed live via the partypokerTV Twitch Stream, with top-notch commentary from Jeff Platt, Brent Hanks, and Nick Schulman.
Action Recap
The final day began with Imsirovic holding the chip lead, but things didn’t work out well for him as he was eliminated in ninth place, without securing any payout. Turkish poker pro Orpen Kisacikoglu suffered a similar fate when he bubbled the tournament in eighth place.
The pretty stacked final table saw almost all players passing the chip lead between them throughout the game. With the elimination of Kisacikoglu, the remaining seven players were guaranteed to receive at least $212,500, and that amount eventually went to Sam Greenwood when he finished in seventh place after losing a sensational hand against Dan Shak.
Greenwood was followed to the rail by Linus Loeliger who went all in with ace-queen against the ace-jack of Pauli Ayras. After the jack-high flop, the Austrian poker pro found no further help from the turn or river, and his bid ended just right there, with $250,000 in sixth-place winnings.
Shak, who climbed to the top of the chip counts after busting Greenwood, eventually fell in fifth place after losing to Bonomo in an all-in confrontation, with his ace-king against the eventual winner’s pocket pair. Shak earned $325,000 for his efforts. The next player to go was Ayras, who was involved in a preflop race against Addamo, with his ace-king also losing to Addamo’s pocket pair. Ayras finished fourth for $487,500.
After knocking out Ayras, Addamo became the chip leader, followed by Bonomo in second place, and Peters on the short stack who was later eliminated by Addamo in third place for $762,500. Peters’ elimination set up a thrilling heads-up match between Addamo and Bonomo, the former holding the chip advantage during the early stages of the battle.
The Australian did great during all-in confrontations, and also showed excellent snap-calling skills, but Bonomo just wouldn’t give in. Both players traded the dominant position several times, but by the time the final hand was dealt, it was Bonomo who held an almost 2:1 lead.
After more than two hours of sharing doubles between them, Addamo limped for 300,000, with Bonomo shoving all-in with king-five. Addamo called with a pair of queens, but his American opponent made a full house from the board to capture the largest slice of the prize pool. Addamo’s impressive run earned him $1,187,500.
Bonomo’s Accomplishments
This is Justin Bonomo’s third SHRB title, having won two titles – the Super High Roller Bowl and Super High Roller Bowl China in 2018. On the same year, the American poker pro also won two WSOP bracelets, and six other poker titles, alongside 23 live final tables.
In 2018 alone, Bonomo won more than $25.5 million, constituting just over half of his total live tournament winnings which currently sit at $49,135,608. On that very same year he toppled Daniel Negreanu off the top spot of Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List, which now has a new leader, fellow American Bryn Kenney.
The inaugural Super High Roller Bowl Online Series featured more than $20 million in guarantees, spread across 28 events. It was hosted by partypoker, in partnership with Poker Central. The event was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
