Justin Bonomo is having himself quite a year and that theme continued on Wednesday night as he defeated a final table that included Daniel Negreanu, Jason Koon and Christoph Vogelsang to win the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl for $5,000,000. The win comes just over two months after he won the Super High Roller Bowl China event for $4.8 million. He’s now won $13.9 million in 2018 from 16 cashes, including six victories. Nick Petrangelo started Day 4 with the second smallest stack and any hope of turning that into a long day was taken away on the first hand of play. Petrangelo raised from the cutoff to 50,000 before Jason Koon re-raised to 130,000 from the button. Petrangelo moved all in for 400,000 and Koon called. Petrangelo showed [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] but found nothing but bad news when Koon tabled [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="ac"][poker card="ks"][poker card="5s"][poker card="8s"][poker card="qh"] to eliminate Peterangelo in sixth place. It took another two hours before the next player was sent to the rail. Down to just seven big blinds, Christoph Vogelsang moved all in from the small blind and Mikita Badziakouski happily called from the big blind and flipped over [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] while Vogelsang, the defending champion, wasn’t quite drawing dead with [poker card="qc"][poker card="6c"]. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5c"] flop gave Vogelsang all kinds of hope, but the neither the [poker card="9h"] turn or [poker card="8d"] river fulfilled that hope and Vogelsang was out in fifth place. Four-handed play lasted nearly 5.5 hours before Bonomo and Badziakouski clashed in a blind vs. blind battle. Bonomo raised to 140,000 from the small blind and Badziakouski defended his big. The flop came [poker card="th"][poker card="9c"][poker card="3s"] Badziakouski called Bonomo’s bet of 225,000. The turn was the [poker card="4c"] and Bonomo bet 475,000 before Badziakouski moved all in for 1,500,000. Bonomo snap-called and turned over [poker card="kd"][poker card="tc"] while Badziakouski showed [poker card="td"][poker card="8s"] which put him behind. The river was the [poker card="2h"] and Badziakouski, who began the day with the chip lead, was eliminated in fourth place. The final three players had roughly the same stacks before Koon lost 80% of his chips to Bonomo after both players flopped two pair. Koon was unable to spin his stack up and was eliminated by Bonomo just a few hands later. When heads-up play began, Bonomo had 80% of the chips in play and over the next 90 minutes, he never relinquished the lead before finally finishing off Negreanu. Bonomo raised to 200,000 from the button and Negreanu called. The flop came [poker card="9h"][poker card="7h"][poker card="6d"] and Negreanu checked. Bonomo bet 160,000 and Negreanu responded with a raise to 500,000. Bonomo kept the throttle on and made it 1,250,000 to go, forcing Negreanu into the tank. After a minute to consider his options, Negreanu moved all in for 4,400,000 and Bonomo snap-called and turned over [poker card="9d"][poker card="9s"] for top set while Negreanu showed [poker card="8c"][poker card="7d"] for an open-ended straight draw. The turn was the [poker card="ks"] and the river was the [poker card="6c"], giving Bonomo an unneeded full house and his second Super High Roller Bowl title of 2018. Payouts Justin Bonomo - $5,000,000 Daniel Negreanu - $3,000,000 Jason Koon - $2,100,000 Mikita Badziakouski - $1,600,000 Christoph Vogelsang - $1,200,000 Nick Petrangelo - $900,000 Stephen Chidwick - $600,000 Seth Davies - $90,000
