Justin Bonomo wins the 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller London Series £ 100k Short-Deck


By winning the main event of the 2019 Triton Poker Super High Roller London Series £ 100,000 ($ 125,900) Short-Deck, Justin Bonomo gets $ 3,257,400 USD, which represents only the fourth largest cash in his entire career.

The professional American poker player, with this new triumph, prevented the Malaysian player Wai Kin Yong from obtaining a double consecutive and unprecedented triumph of the Triton Million Main Event, after which he won on August 6, Event 7: £ 100,000 No- Limit Hold’em Short-Deck.

Yong entered the final table of the short deck in the first place of chips, one day after sending £ 100,000 NLHE Main Event for £ 2.44 million. However he failed to retain the consecutive leadership in the Triton London series, being in an impressive second place for £ 1,835,000.

For more than a year, Bonomo remained leading the list of all-time poker prizes, after his triumph in the Big World for Poker Drop 2018 of the World Series of Poker for $ 10,000,000, held last July.

However, it was recently overtaken by Bryn Kenney. Kenney earned more than 20.6 million in the Triton Million of £ 1,050,000, which ended on August 4. But in less than a week he returned to first place, securing the seventh cash for seven figures or more of his career and increasing his historical earnings of more than $ 48.5 million.

Despite this new short-deck win, Bonomo is still $ 7.2 million more below Kenney in the earnings leaderboard. Although the gap between the two players could be closed a little more, Bryn is likely to remain in first place for some more time.

Apart from remaining with the biggest massive prize, the American professional also won 1,200 Player of the Year points from the Card Player for his victory.

With this he adds his third title and completes his fifth final table of the year, which drives him to box 38 in the POY 2019 race, which Global Poker sponsors. Bonomo entered the Main Event of £ 100,000 No-Limit Hold’em and finished 15th for £ 201,600.
Subsequently, the player purchased the £ 100,000 Non-Limit Hold’em Short Cover Main Event and managed to lower it for £ 2,670,000. With this score, a place is being secured in the Poker Hall of Fame in the future.

Bonomo, he is a specialist in Hold’em without limit, but now he has two titles of short deck of Triton. The current one and the one he won last March when he eliminated another $ 586,000 short deck event in the Triton Jeju series.
