Justin Bonomo Takes Down Triton Short Deck Event Again

After an incredible ten days of high-stakes poker action, the Triton Super High Roller Series in London has finally come to an end.

The final event of the series: £100,000 Short Deck Main Event attracted 108 entries including 55 re-entries to build a prize pool of more than £10.3 million.

In the end, American poker pro Justin Bonomo topped the field to pocket £2.67 million defeating Wai Kin Yong in the heads-up, who already won the No Limit Hold’em Main Event a couple of days ago. In total, 15 players made the money receiving a minimum of £177,000 prize.

Ahead of the start of Triton Super High Roller London, Bonomo was leading the all-time poker money list until Bryn Kenney snatched that pole position after taking down the world’s most expensive buy-in poker tournament.

With this win, Bonomo has now racked up over $48 million in total lifetime tournament earnings.

“My 2018 was incredible, so I’m kind of easing my way into retirement,” Bonomo said. “My plan is to play less poker, Bryn’s plan is to play a lot of poker, so as far as I’m concerned I’ll probably never get number one again. It’s not really a goal of mine, and I’m totally fine with that.”

He added: “I’m not going to completely retire, but I’m playing a lot less. Because of 2018 I’ve nothing but pride to look back on. I’ve nothing left to prove to anyone.”
