  • Justin Bonomo won the $25K 8-Handed for $574,529
  • A three-way ICM chop with Ferreira and Haxton
  • The win further strengthens Bonomo’s position at the top of the All Time Money list

The year got off to a good start for Justin Bonomo as he won the $25,000 8-Handed event at the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) at the Baha Mar Resort in Nassau in the Bahamas for $574,529.

In doing so, he also extended his lead in poker’s all-time money list, with his live tournament winnings climbing to more than $59.5 million. That puts him well ahead of Bryn Kenney ($57.2 million) and Daniel Negreanu ($50.1 million).

Bonomo Wins PCA $25K 8-Handed Event

Bonomo won the event following a three-way ICM deal with Rui Ferreira and Isaac Haxton. The Virginia native was declared the winner, but the largest payout went to chip leader Ferreira who walked away with $664,820 as runner-up. Haxton took home $491,550 for his third-place finish, another brilliant score for the American poker pro who captured the $100K Super High Roller at the same series just a week ago for $1,082,230.

The $25K 8-Handed event attracted a huge field of 140 players to create a total prize pool of $3,361,400, the biggest event of the series so far in terms of the total number of participants. Some of poker’s biggest names took a shot, including Michael Addamo, Ben Heath, Mike Watson and Stephen Chidwick who all failed to reach the money.

Dan Smith, Daniel Dvoress, Chad Eveslage and Timothy Adams cashed but did not reach the final table. Those who did include Carlos Chadha (4th, $286,950), Jean-Noel Thorel (5th, $220,700), Mario Mosboeck (6th, $169,800), Seth Davies (7th, $130,600), Alex Kulev (8th, $108,450) and Dominykas Mikolaitis (9th, $90,350).

Another PCA Success for Bonomo

Justin Bonomo is used to competing in high-roller events where his biggest tournament scores come from. For him, it always takes a combination of skills, luck, and playing your best to be victorious in any tournament.

Bonomo’s latest win is a remarkable one as it represents his first live tournament victory and second cash outside of Las Vegas since 2019. He earlier placed 44th in the $10K PCA Main Event for $29,400.

The American poker pro is no stranger to the PCA, final-tabling multiple PCA events in the past back when the festival was still held in Paradise Island. His largest win at the series came in 2018 when he finished second in the $100K Super High Roller for $1,077,800.
