Bonomo Running Hot; Comes from Behind to Bust Two Players

Justin Bonomo was just involved in a three-way all-in pot against Peter Akery and Oleksii Kovalchuk. Bonomo held the worst of it going in with the {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}. Kovalchuk held the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} and Akery the {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}. Akery was the shortest stack of the bunch, while Bonomo and Kovalchuk were fighting for a side pot.

The flop came down {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Bonomo picked up a gutshot straight draw. Akery kept the lead and Kovalchuk was still in front for the side pot.

The {J-Clubs} spiked on the turn and Bonomo took the lead with a set of jacks. Even Bonomo's face looked extremely surprised as did everyone else's that were watching on.

The river completed the board with the {10-Clubs} and paired the board. Bonomo finished with a full house and because he had the most chips in the hand, eliminated both Akery and Kovalchuk en route to 370,000 in chips.

Bonomo has had himself one heck of a PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final this year. He won the €100,000 Super High Roller for €1.64 million after beating a field of some of the greatest players this game has ever seen. Then, he went on to finish 28th in the Main Event for €35,000 from a starting field of 665 players. He's not in the money yet here in this event and still has a bit of a ways to go, but by the looks of it, everyone better watch out if he's running this hot and playing his A-game.
