Bonomo Breaks The Record

Justin Bonomo is the winner of the poker tournament as he is the sole player with maximum money earned than anyone else in the history of poker. The 32 year old poker champion earned $10 million as he won the $1 million buy-in at the World Series of Poker on Tuesday in Las Vegas. This big win broke all records and he is slightly above Daniel Negreanu which is indeed an incredible win. Until now the player has won $25 million in 2018. This is only July and Bonomo has already won $4.8 million in Macau at a high-roller tournament. In addition, $5 million has been earned in another high-roller tournament, which was held in the month of May. The latest win was Bonomo’s 6 figure cash win 16th time in 2018.

The poker pro defeated Fedor Holz and won $6 million as a consolation prize. The poker fans should take these figures into consideration like point totals on the scoreboard and not simply as funds in the bank account. The totals just win and do not come under the cost of the buy-in. One of the common practices seen in poker is the selling pieces, especially in the high-stakes tournaments. Here, players have an option to sell a partial amount of buy-in to investors in order to get an equivalent part of potential winnings.

Bonomo was overjoyed with his victory and so were the fans. This was the first time a poker player showed such brilliance within a short span of time. He definitely deserves great applause from all poker players and the management. Regardless of how much Bonomo gets to preserve for himself, the latest win has been incredible and cannot be matched with any other player in the past. He will be most talked about poker player now for some time. He is undoubtedly the highest winning poker player ever.
