Justin Bonomo emerged victorious in the Triton Series £100,000 Short Deck Main Event. After winning a $3.25 million prize, he made a surprisingly announcement: he may retire from poker.
It was a bittersweet moment for Bonomo, who lost his spot as the all-time poker winnings leader to Bryn Kenney just days earlier. The latter finished second in the Triton Million and collected $20.6 million (through a chop with winner Aaron Zang).
However, he can at least ride off into the sunset a happy man. The $3.25 million prize that he collected pushed his career winnings up to $48.5 million.
Bonomo Probably Won’t Every Regain Tournament Winnings Lead
Kenney now has a commanding lead over Bonomo for the biggest poker tournament winner. His $55.5 million in earnings put him $7 million higher than Bonomo.
The latter hasn’t ruled out continuing to play poker. However, he definitely doesn’t seem likely to continue grinding as much as in years past.
Whatever the case may be, Justin Bonomo will always be known as one of the best tourney players in history.
