Justin Bonomo Wins Poker Masters 2023 Event 9 For $333,000

Justin Bonomo came into the final table of Event #9: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em with the chip lead and, despite a valiant effort by Daniel Rezaei in heads-up play, went coast-to-coast to capture the title and the $333,000 first-place prize.

Bonomo started the day with nearly 45% of the chips in play and took a 4-to-1 chip lead into heads-up play, but Rezaei quickly gained the upper hand when his pocket sixes held against the pocket fours of Bonomo on the first hand of play. Two hands later, Rezaei wrestled the chip lead away from Bonomo when his pocket sevens once again held, this time against the ace-two of Bonomo.

Bonomo, now facing his own 4-to-1 chip disadvantage, didn’t blink and managed to claw his way back, eventually retaking the chip lead when he picked off Rezaei on the river. Facing an all-in shove for this tournament life, Bonomo used two time banks before declaring, “I really think you are bluffing me. I call,” and tabled ace high.

Rezaei would indeed show a bluff with jack high. Bonomo let out a deep sigh, collected the pot, and took a nearly 2-to-1 chip lead, which he would not relinquish. Rezaei would eventually fall in second place for $222,000 when his rivered two pair of queens and deuces was bested by Bonomo’s superior two pair of aces and queens.

The final table was a quick one, lasting just under two and a half hours as Bonomo used his chip lead to his advantage and had the added benefit of the deck as he had a hand in eliminating all five of his opponents.
