Bonomo’s 2018 Run Is The Greatest Of All Time!

It has been the heater to surpass all heaters in the game of poker, and Justin Bonomos remarkable 2018 run deserves a closer look - $24,945,435 in cashes including 10 outright victories against the very best the world has to offer as competition, and a new crown as all-time leading tournament money-winner…

By: Andrew Burnett

Bonomo’s stunning string of successes has included some of the biggest titles the game has to offer; the Super High Roller Bowl, The WSOP Heads-up Championship and earlier this week the $1million buy-in Big One for One Drop – a $10million chunk of change which lifted him above the best-known names in the history of the game…

Even comparing it to the likes of Fedor Holz’s phenomenal run in 2016 seems rather pointless now It’s not even the end of July and Bonomo, unlike Holz whom he defeated heads-up for the One Drop title this week, appears to have no plans to retire, semi-retire or even slow down.

"I don't feel that I have anything left to prove to anyone," stated Bonomo after his massive $10million win. "I'm going to continue what I'm doing: playing tournaments to the best of my ability and studying and getting even better. I'll never be complacent with my poker game."

Not everyone, it seems, is happy to share the love over Bonomo’s amazing run, however, Mike ‘The Mouth’ Matusow taking to Twitter to rain on the parade a little after ‘Kevmath’ did some, well, ‘math’ on Bonomo’s streak…

With his 8-figure One Drop win, three 7-figure scores, 12 6-figure cashes and eight paydays under $100k, Bonomo’s earnings and buy-ins reflect the simple fact that he needs to play the biggest and the best to improve, with occasional smaller events to fill in the gaps.

Matusow, of course, understands just how good Bonomo really is, and tweeted such later in the day…

 

…and was joined by a host of others in their disbelief at the 32-year old’s recent destruction of the best of the rest…

All that’s really left for Bonomo to do now to become GOAT is convince Phil Hellmuth that he can play almost as well as the Poker Brat himself!
