Justin Bonomo has won the Super High Roller Bowl Online on partypoker for $1,775,000, becoming the first player to win three SHRB titles.

Bonomo defeated Michael Addamo heads-up to top the 50-player field, adding the Online title to his victories in China and Las Vegas in 2018.

Addamo showed grit and guile heads-up, with several eye-catching plays drawing the attention of the commentary team of Nick Schulman, Jeff Platt, and Brent Hanks over on the partypokerTV Twitch Stream

Start-of-day chip leader Ali Imsirovic finished just short of the final table in ninth, with Orpen Kisacikoglu bubbling the tournament in eighth after running ace-king into the kings of Addamo.

The final table was stacked with talent, exemplified by the fact that all but two players held the chip lead at one stage at least, but eventually SHRB expert Bonomo came out on top, adding a third title and over $1.7 million to his already length poker resume.

Final Day Recap

Darrell Goh was the shortest stack to start the day and was the first elimination, with Alex Foxen and Sergi Reixach also eliminated, as the chip lead continued to change hands.

David Peters doubled through start-of-day chip leader Ali Imsirovic to regain the lead he had held for much of Day 1, before surging to become the clear leader with 3.5 million in chips by the first break of the day.

Jon van Fleet went next in tenth place, eliminated by Sam Greenwood, before play went hand-for-hand on the final table bubble.

Hand-for-hand didn't take long, as Imsirovic failed to recover from that early Greenwood double, eventually succumbing to Pauli Ayras and finishing in ninth place.

The elimination of Imsirovic moved Ayras into the final table chip lead, ahead of Peters and Dan Shak, with the remaining eight players now on the money bubble.

Despite players being on a $212,500 bubble, it didn't take long for the bubble to burst. Orpen Kisacikoglu was the table short stack, and three-bet all-in with ace-king only for Michael Addamo to wake up with kings. Kisacikoglu received no help on the runout, and he was eliminated short of the money.

Now that the remaining players were all in the money, the fireworks really began.

First, Greenwood doubled through Ayras to move into the lead. He now held 25% of the chips in play, but it didn't last long. Both Linus Loeliger and Justin Bonomo doubled through him, before busting in a sensational hand against Shak, cold-calling all-in with pocket sevens against his opponent's ace-king. Shak flopped top pair to send Greenwood to the rail and move into the chip lead.

The final table was punctuated not only by stellar passages of play but rapid and frequent changes in the chip lead. Shak's moment in the sun was all too brief as Ayras overtook him following the elimination of Loeliger in sixth place.

Addamo then took a turn in the lead after doubling through Ayras, before Bonomo moved atop the counts after eliminating Shak. Shak held ace-king against Bonomo's pocket tens, but failed to get there and was eliminated.

Shak's elimination precipitated a flurry of eliminations, with Ayras also losing a flip with ace-king against the fours of Addamo to bust. One hand later, Addamo finished off Peters to take a strong chip lead into heads-up play against Bonomo.

Heads-up play was a captivating affair punctuated by some of the highest level poker imaginable. An early double for Bonomo flipped the chip counts but Addamo was never out of contention with multiple doubles throughout heads-up play.

Addamo's plays weren't just limited to all-in confrontations with the young Australian snap-calling correctly with bottom pair and extracting maximum value when both he and Bonomo rivered flushes.

Not to be outdone, Bonomo showed that he too was capable of pulling moves heads-up. In one hand, he forced his opponent to fold trips with a cleverly-timed bet of almost six times the pot, but in others he seemed capable of opening a gap between the two players with ease.

The two battled for over two hours heads-up sharing five doubles between them. By the time the tournament finished, there were 50 big blinds in play. Addamo limped with queens and Bonomo shoved with king-five. Addamo called, but his opponent spiked two kings to secure victory and $1,775,000.

That concludes the PokerNews coverage of the 2020 Super High Roller Bowl Online. We look forward to welcoming you back to another live-reported event in the future!
