Event #11: $1,500 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Bonomo Tops a Million

• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Justin Bonomo had made it 52,000 when Alejandro Jauregui moved all in for around 200,000. Bonomo took a while to make the call. When he did, he flipped over {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. Jauregui had {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

The cards ran out {6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{9-Spades}.

Just a few hands later, Bonomo picked up {k-}{k-} to knock yet another opponent out to really get the ball rolling and become the first player in the tournament to amass over one million chips, overtaking Sowers at the same table.
