Justin Bonomo Takes Home 1.64 Million EUR For WinPublished on 2012-04-25 22:57:00
Justin Bonomo navigated through an unbelievably stacked field to take down the "Super High Roller" event at the EPT Grand Final earlier today.
Many of the biggest names in poker, including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius, turned out for this event. The buyin for the tournament was 100k EUR, making it the largest single buy-in event in the history of the European Poker Tour.
Here is how the tournament payouts ended up finishing out:
1. Justin Bonomo, 1,640,000 EUR
2. Tobias Reinkemeier, 1,064,000 EUR
3. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, 621,000 EUR
4. Patrik Antonius, 443,000 EUR
5. Masa Kagawa, 354,500 EUR
6. Daniel Negreanu, 310,000 EUR
Note: 1,640,000 EUR works out to about $2.165 million USD.
With his victory in this event, Justin Bonomo now has over $5 million in total lifetime tournament cashes. This is, by far, the largest single cash of Bonomo's career.
A few other notes:
This was the second major cash for "ElkY" in the past week - he also took down an event at the recent EPT Berlin for just over $300k. Not a bad week at all for "ElkY".
Antonius' cash in this event gives him nearly $2 million USD in total cashes so far this year, which means that 2012 is already the best year of his career in terms of live tournament cashes.
