The 2018 US Poker Open - Event #1 $10,000 NLHE has been taken down by American poker pro Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, earning him a massive $190,400 payday.

It is actually a good start of the month of February for the 32-year-old Bonomo, as he has just recently cashed for $556,873 at the WPT 2018 Lucky Hearts Poker Open $25,000 No Limit Hold'em held just this January.

The first $10,000 NLHE event of the US Poker Open had a total of 68 entrants. In the heads-up play, Bonomo triumphed over recreational Lebanese player Pierre Naim Boutros Nadim.

With this current achievement, Justin Bonomo now has more than $20 million in overall live tournament earnings. He began playing poker in the online realm, where he was busted in 2006 for entering major online poker tourneys using multiple accounts. That bad deed resulted to costing the young rising poker star tens of thousands of dollars at that time.

Bonomo said after his victory at Event #1 at the US Poker Open, "I've just had an incredible run of cards in the last two months, and I hope it continues."

As Justin Bonomo is crowned the first winner at the US Poker Open, and there are seven more tournaments underway that are waiting to be claimed by the next poker champions.

Always nice winning a first place in a tournament.
Even better when you get a prize that good.
Now about the picture.
What is this all about with that hair?
The first thing that cam into my mind when i saw the picture was
"The Muppet Show" Smile

the hair of this poker player did not make him to lose the focus, but on the contrary made him win a nice prize. For him this haircut is fashionable for me is horrible but of course many people are progressing to stupidity. I do not know what she saw interesting to that version of haircut.

If the main purpose of his haircut was to attract attention from other people, I can admit that he succeeded Smile It's just horrible, unlike his play in this tournament. Congratulations to him, and I hope he will spend his money wisely, for a stylist for example.

I am lookin' at why an event with 10k buy-in would pay out only 190 thousand dollars for first place then saw they did not even have more than 68 participants. I guess this series is yet to gain some popularity among pros in the US.

@bowie nowadays a 10k buy in event is no more like it was 12 years ago, you won't get big fields except if the tournament is a popular one as it made its history many many years ago. Today pros are more likely to play in 25k or more buy in tournaments to get good profitable amount of cash...

Yeah its a bit of weird from me 2 try holding them some 'imaginary' financial standard established decades ago in live poker, I guess inflation hit these prizepools just as hard as it did with any other economic asset.

Massive well done to Justin Bonomo on being crowned champion of the first-ever US$10,000 buy-in US Poker Open (USPO) event and on taking home US190,400 first-place prize. He has been running very well. I am sure he will win his second WSOP bracelet soon.
