The 2018 stats speak for themselves when you look at Justin Bonomo’sHendon 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.
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.

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.”
New information (30% swap), a new hand to look at (KQ vs 22) and my personal thoughts on the Kristen Bicknell + Ale… https://t.co/yLyirBQTOC— Justin Bonomo (@JustinBonomo) July 01, 2018
Mike Watson’s thoughts which are spoken about in Bonomo’s post are here —with Watson suggesting a 6 month ban for the couple.
