Justin’s cards began as a child. He was very successful in the popular Magic game: The Gathering. At the age of 12 he had already participated in tournaments that reached $ 250,000.
Actually, returning from one such tournament, Bonomo noticed the WSOP broadcast and, as it turns out later, thus found his profession. For the sake of poker, the American decided to leave his college and, having received support from his parents, began to build a poker career.
From 16 to 21 Bonomo has already managed to win hundreds of thousands of dollars. In 2005 (in his 19) he became the youngest in history participant in the television final table EPT. In two years, Justin was able to debut on WSOP and immediately won 4th place in one of the tournaments, for which he earned more than $ 150,000. Bonomo is now 3 champion bracelets WSOP. One of them deserves special attention. In 2018 he won The Big One For One Drop With Bay-in 1,000,000 dollars. The victory brought the American $ 10 million and allowed to go first in the story of the size of the prize in living tournaments. Now in his asset 49 128 107 dollars. Only in the summer of 2019, he was moved by Brin Kenny ($ 56 403 507).
