Justin Bonomo (cover image) has achieved an unprecedented feat, hardly surprising for a player who boasts of almost $50 Million in live tournament winnings. Bonomo has become the first player who can boast of winning three Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB) titles!

He won a windfall $1.77 Million along with the coveted SHRB Championship ring after beating an elite field of 50 entrants in the first-ever $102,000 buy-in SHRB Online on partypoker last night. Bonomo defeated high-stakes phenom Michael Addamo (runner-up for $1.18 Million) in the heads-up play to pick up a record-breaking third SHRB title!

Currently ranked #2 on the All-Time Money List, Bonomo is without a doubt a poker legend having won three WSOP bracelets along with titles at the 2019 PCA, EPT Monte Carlo, Triton SHR London, and Triton SHR Jeju.

He won his first SHRB title in March 2018 in China, where he defeated 75 entries to win $4.8 Million. Within two months, Bonomo was posing with a second SHRB ring, this time taking down the SHRB Las Vegas title for $5 Million! His most momentous win to date continues to be the career-best $10 Million that he won at the $1 Million buy-in The Big One for One Drop at the 2018 WSOP!

Thirteen survivors from the starting field of 50 runners came back to play Day 2 in the $102K SHRB Online on partypoker. Ali Imsirovic was the start-of-the-day chip leader with Bonomo, the only former SHRB champion remaining in the field. Incidentally, Imsirovic bubbled the final table and fell out empty-handed since the event paid only the top seven places.

Final Table Recap

Right off the bat, the shortest FT stack holder, Orpen Kisacikoglu, became the official money bubble and exited in eighth place. Kisacikoglu’s failed to catch up to Michael Addamo’s pocket kings.

The first ITM elimination was Sam Greenwood, who finished seventh after his pocket sevens ran into Dan Shak’s . A king appeared on the flop, and that spelled the end of Greenwood`s deep run.

After that, Linus Loeliger got relegated to the rail in sixth place after a brutal beat. Loeliger’s lost out to Pauli Ayras’ on the runout .

Bonomo had chipped up by then, and he further consolidated by eliminating Dan Shak in fifth place. Bonomo’s pocket tens won the flip against Shak’s after the board ran .

About 15 minutes later, Pauli Ayras opened with , and Addamo 3-bet jammed pocket fours. Ayras called but found no help on the dry board and succumbed in fourth place.

Three-handed play lasted less than two minutes as David Peters got busted at the hands of Addamo. Peters opened , and Addamo called with pocket tens to see the flop . Addamo bet enough to put Peters all-in, and the latter called. The turn and the river proved to be no help to Peters, and he was relegated to the rail in third place.

Heads-up, Addamo (9.70 Million) held an overwhelming chip lead over Bonomo (5.30 Million), but the two-time SHRB champion wasted no time cutting that down with a massive double-up. The back and forth continued for two hours, and on the final hand, Addamo slow-played queens with a limp. Bonomo shoved with and Addamo snap-called. The trap could have worked for Addamo, had the rundown not completed a full house for Bonomo on the river, getting the latter a record third SHRB title!
