A month and a half ago, the doors to the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino opened in Las Vegas, for the start of this year’s World Series of Poker. Since then, tens of thousands of poker players flew down to Vegas to be a part of the festivities and earn themselves some life-changing cash prizes.
A month and a half later, we’re down to the final tournament of the 2018 WSOP. Event #78: The Big One for One Drop – $1,000,000 No-Limit Hold’em kicked off a couple of days back and we’re down to the final six players. One of them will walk away with a whopping cash prize of $10 million (~INR 68.45 crore).
In the lead among the final six is none other than US poker player, Justin Bonomo. The 32-year old has had a sensational year so far and he’s created what may just be the best year for a player in the history of tournament poker. He’s amassed over $10 million this year and has catapulted to #3 on the all-time money list, with over $32 million in live poker cashes.
He began the year with a 7-figure score for finishing 2nd at the PCA Super High Roller, followed by shipping the inaugural Super High Roller Bowl China for over $4.8 million and then winning the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl as well, for $5 million. It only makes sense that he’s leading the Big One for One Drop Event as well.
The others in the mix are Dan Smith, Rick Salomon, David Einhorn, Fedor Holz and Byron Kaverman. They will resume tomorrow morning on the $2 million tournament bubble, so no one will be wanting to bust first on Day 3. Take a look at the current chip counts at the end of Day 2:
Bonomo has a chip lead of more than double the next best, Fedor Holz, and will be favourite to go on and win the tournament. If he does, he will overtake Daniel Negreanu on the all-time live poker earnings list and go straight to #1. Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com to see who goes on to win the title.
