Justin Bonomo will begin the final table as the overwhelming chip leader. He holds over 40% of the chips in play and has more than 2.7 million more than Tobias Reinkemeier does in second place.
Coming into this final table, Bonomo's record has him with just over $2.9 million in live tournament earnings. If he can find his way to the top six — and he's well a favorite to do so — he'll eclipse the $3-million mark. Of Bonomo's young career, he has nine cashes of six figures or more. One of those came in May 2011 when he took fifth in the $100,000 Super High Roller event at the World Poker Tour's Ninth Annual Five Star World Poker Classic. For that finish, he earned $224,160.
The largest score on Bonomo's record came in 2009 when he had another fifth-place finish. This one was in the World Series of Poker's $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em event and he won $413,165. He also has three other WSOP final tables under his belt and a WSOP Circuit title from 2009.
Bonomo was one of the seven players who re-entered this event, but is the only one remaining. From the looks of it, firing that second bullet was the correct decision as he comes into the final table with a strangle hold on the rest of the field.
