Justin Bonomo Wins The Big One for One Drop For $10million
18 Jul

High-stakes crusher Justin Bonomo has taken down the biggest event on this year’s poker calendar. The 32-year-old American bested his rivals in the $1 million buy-in Big One For One Drop to collect a whopping $10 million.

Bonomo arrived at the final table stage facing rivals such as Fedor Holz and Dan Smith, so it’s fair to say he had his work cut ahead of him. And by the time it was three-handed, it was exactly these players who remained to fight it out for glory, with Holz holding almost half of the chips in play.

Smith went home after Bonomo moved all-in with K10 from the small blind and he called it off with Q10 . The board came down to give Bonomo the nut straight and we were down to two. Bonomo, the man fighting to overtake Daniel Negreanu as the most successful tournament player of all time, and Fedor Holz, the man who won it all over two years and then retired from full time poker at the tender age of 24.

Bonomo then had barely more than one third of the chips, but pulled off an amazing fightback. The end came when he completed with AJ and Holz jammed with A4 . The board offered neither player any help and Bonomo took a famous victory topping up his yearly earnings to $25 million, and taking top spot in the all-time tournament winners list.
