Event #38: High Roller No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed

It almost looks as no surprise to see Michael Addamo win the tournament as he almost lead the tournament from start to finish to win his 3rd WSOP bracelet. However, the heads-up match against Justin Bonomo wasn’t decided at all as Bonomo had the lead at some point with a 3-to-2 chip advantage. In the final hand of the tournament, both players had similar stacks and Adamo finally called a 4-bet allin with KJ. Bonomo showed a speculative T9 and then the flop came QJT giving the lead to Adamo. The dealer then showed a ten on the turn giving trips to Bonomo, but an ace on the river made Adamo a winning straight, and the trophy of course.

To put the win into perspective, let’s have a look at the 6 last live cashes of Adamo:


Given this amazing run our winner stayed pretty down-to-earth: “Obviously there’s some skill involved, but winning this much is really attributed to luck in the end, so it’s very fortunate. I play a strategy where I put a lot of big bets in. That’s no secret. Sometimes you’re going to be out in the first level and sometimes you’re gonna build up a big stack.”

Michael Addamo now 49th on the total live earnings list with $15.5M

Event #40: H.O.R.S.E. Championship

In the $10k championship twenty players remain. Eric Rodawig is currently in the chip lead, but France has placed two of its legends in David Benyamine (3rd) and Bertrand Grospellier (7th). Many other well known names will fight for title, including Jake Schwartz (11th), Max Pescatori (12th) and Dylan Linde (17th).
