The final table of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final €25,000 High Roller has been set after the elimination of Phil Ivey in ninth place. Leading the way is this week's superstar Justin Bonomo.
On the last hand of the night, Bonomo took out Ivey by spiking a flush on the river against Ivey's top set. Bonomo already had the chip lead, but now tops the rest of the field by nearly one million in chips thanks to a river spade. As if Bonomo hasn't done enough winning all week long, he'll be looking to pad his wallet a bit more.
Earlier this week, Bonomo won the €100,000 Super High Roller for €1.64 million. He then took 28th in the Main Event for €35,000 and has already locked up a minimum of €100,000 here in this event with a chance to make it a lot more. When Bonomo won the Super High Roller, things were in a similar scenario as Bonomo entered the final table with a massive chip lead on the rest of the field.
Joining Bonomo at the final table are two members of Team PokerStars Pro, Daniel Negreanu and Max Lykov. They'll return tomorrow with 660,000 and 271,000 in chips, respectively. Lykov is the short stack returning to play.
