Justin Bonomo Hits $60 Million Mark In Live Tournament Earnings


Justin Bonomo has been in the headlines after the USA star shocked the poker world by becoming the first player to hit the $60 Million (Hendon Mob) mark in total live earnings from poker tournaments. This milestone made sure that Bonomo kept his lead on the All Time Money List (Hendon Mob). Recently the 37 year old emerged victorious during the ongoing Triton Series in North Cyprus.

Bonomo recorded a 9th rank finish at $50,000 No Limit Hold’em 7-Handed (Event #6) to walk away with $135,000. He also recorded a 3rd place finish at the $40,000 No Limit Hold’em 8-Handed (Event #5) in the Triton Super High Roller Series, pocketing $552,500 in prize money. His 13th rank finish in $15,000 + 15,000 No Limit Hold’em – Mystery Bounty 6-Handed (Event #3) earned him a pay cheque of $39,500.

Justin Bonomo’s journey to $60 Million 

The Fairfax-born star achieved the feat of leading the All Time Money List while playing in the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $250,000 Super High Roller. It not only helped him to cross the $60 Million mark but also saw him create an elusive club of being the only player to pocket over $60 million in live tournament earnings.

Justin Bonomo was on a trip to the Bahamas, participating in the PCA series. It ended up being a successful outing for the Vancouver resident as he managed to rank 44th in the PCA Main Event for $29,400. He followed it up with a first-place finish in a $25,000 NL hold’em event for $574,530. Later on, Bonomo managed to record his biggest cash result for the last as he finished sixth in the $250,000 Super High Roller for $664,900.

Justin Bonomo’s two six-figure cashes at the 2023 PCA were impressive. His top live tournament scores include his win during the 2018 WSOP $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop, wherein he pocketed $10,000,000. He also finished first at the Super High Roller Bowl IV, and won $5,000,000.

Bonomo has constantly been involved in a long battle with fellow countryman Bryn Kenney for being on the top spot in poker’s all-time money list. While the two USA nationals lead the way, Canadian pro Daniel Negreanu is not far behind. However, in the cut throat race, Justin Bonomo has managed to further extend his lead over 2nd ranked Bryn Kenney by over $4,000,000. While Bonomo sits with $61,210,454 against his name, Bryn Kenney has earned $57,701,965 in live earnings.
