Justin Bonomo On Sick Heater Rivalling That Of Fedor Holz

The 2018 stats speak for themselves when you look at Justin Bonomo’s Hendon Mob page showing he is having one of the best runs of his poker career.

Since the start of 2018 he has cashed 21 times, coming 1st place a staggering 9 times. One of his wins was the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl for $5 million but his earnings for 2018 are already over $14.8 million mark.

We haven’t seen a heater like this since 2016 when Fedor Holz earned $5 million in just a month with back to back high roller wins.

Bonomo is currently sitting pretty in 2nd place on the United States All Time Money List and 3rd on the Overall All Time Money List. Bonomo is only around $2 million away from knocking Eric Seidel out of 1st and 2nd place respectively.

But Bonomo is not done yet as he plans to play in the WSOP Main Event. GL!!!

Do You Think This is Collusion?

This story still has the poker community talking. Real life poker couple Kristen Bicknell (who is signed by partypoker) and Alex Foxen made the final table of a tournament at The Venetian in Las Vegas last month. Their alleged soft-play and collusion has the poker community riled up with the likes of Doug Polk and Justin Bonomo still talking about it long after play finished up.

Here you can read some hot takes as to what really happened, and if it can be defined as collusion.

Doug Polk sums up what has happened over on YouTube.

Justin Bonomo has much to say on the matter—definitely read his post right to the end. “I do not think they intended to cheat or collude. I do however think some ethical lines were crossed in very egregious ways.”

Mike Watson’s thoughts which are spoken about in Bonomo’s post are here —with Watson suggesting a 6 month ban for the couple.
