Justin Bonomo claims $10M in WSOP $!M buy-in Big One for One Drop

Making a mark in one of the biggest high roller poker tournament is  nothing short of a major accomplishment.

On Tuesday, Justin Bonomo claimed the WSOP $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop and grabbed a whopping $10 million first-place prize.

He also sealed the best year of high roller poker tournament which any poker player could accomplish.

“Disbelief and  happiness. is all over the place,” an emotional Bonomo said after registering a spectacular victory.

“The adrenaline has been going through me like hell. This is really crazy,” he added.

In addition to his Super High Roller wins in China in March and Las Vegas this summer, Bonomo pushed his winnings for the year to $25 million, which placed him above Daniel Negreanu as he climbed to the top-spot on the all-time poker tournament money list with $42.998 million.

Although it is not an accurate tally of the money he has pocketed, it indicates how well Bonomo has played so far.

“Because of the wins this year, I do get to taking big pieces of myself,” said Bonomo.

“This was a million-dollar buy-in, but I was not able to put up anywhere close to even half the money myself. It really made this even more special for me,” he added.

I get to share this win with literally hundreds of people, because I sold action on the internet, as well. Also, some of my closest friends in the world who helped me prepare for this tournament [had pieces, and I’m so happy to give back to them.” an excited Bonomo said.
