Yep, you read that right. This poker prodigy had managed to become a superstar and a household synonym for cheating all before the age of 21. Ah-h-h, the wonders of the internet. Well, the world need wait no longer, for ZeeJustin has held his own private coming-out party at the Bellagio Five Diamonds Classic, making three final tables (and two back to back) for an impressive live outing in his first legal US-based poker tourney.
Bonomo has finished 8th in the 1st $5,000 buy-in event for ~$16,500, 4th in the $2,000 buy-in event for ~$42,500, and 5th in another $5,000 buy-in event for ~$53,500. Now none of this tops the weekend last December when Bonomo took down one of the richest prizes in regularly scheduled online poker, the PokerStars Sunday Million for $137K, but it makes for a pretty good statement that this kid can play some big-time tournament poker - even when he can only play one hand at a time.
