The PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller is all said and done. The man walking away with the title and €1.64 million first-place prize is start-of-the-day chip leader Justin Bonomo.
Bonomo was one of the seven players to re-enter this event, firing in two bullets worth €100,000 each. He was the only one of those seven to cash and proved that his move to re-enter was the correct one. Prior to this win, Bonomo's largest score came in 2009 when he took fifth in the World Series of Poker's $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $413,165.
At the start of the day, Bonomo held over 40% of the chips in play at the final table. He never lost the lead, eliminating five players en route to victory. When we wrote Bonomo's bio, we said that if he cashed, he'd eclipse the $3-million mark for live tournament earnings. Not only has he done that, but he's surpassed the $5-million mark as well and scored the second major title of his career.
