Justin Bonomo

Returning from the last break, the two finalists were discussing the possibility of taking a dinner break in the near future. The match ended before the conversation could finish, though.

In the last hand, Justin Bonomo opened the button with a raise, and Adrian Mateos defended his big blind.

The flop was Ks9h2c. Mateos checked, Bonomo continued for 75,000, and Mateos check-raised to 225,000. Bonomo called.

The turn was the 4h. Mateos moved all in for 1,380,000, and Bonomo quickly called to put him at risk.

Bonomo: AsKd
Mateos: ThJh

Bonomo was ahead with top pair, but Mateos was drawing to a straight and a flush with one to come.

The river was the blank 3d, though.

Bonomo won the pot with a pair of kings, sealing the High Roller victory and the top prize of $556,873. More about his win will be published shortly.

Adrian Mateos

Mateos finished as the runner-up, earning $403,125 for his work. It’s his second runner-up finish of the trip, following a matching run in the $50k Super High Roller.
