The final event of the 2018 World Series of Poker puts a place of history on the line for Justin Bonomo. The 2018 Super High Roller Bowl champion is the chip leader of the Big One for One Drop final table with $10 million sitting for first place. A win for Bonomo leapfrogs him over Daniel Negreanu as the all-time tournament winnings money leader.
The action starts on ESPN2 at 9:00 PM ET with a stacked final table ready to rumble in the $1 million buy-in event.
Bonomo starts Day 3 play with 48,950,000 of the 135 million chips in play pooled together by the 27 registrants.
Second in chips in Fedor Holz, who is poised to cash in yet another major High Roller event. Holz explained the logistics of buying into a $1,000,000 tournament to Poker Central and is a likely favorite to withdraw his share from the prize pool.
Dan Smith joins in having already appeared on PokerGO once this summer. Smith came close to his first career WSOP bracelet in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship and can brandish his No Limit skills once again in One Drop.
The two recreational players in the field are far from underdogs. Rick Salomon made waves on Poker After Dark in “Perks of the Trade” week and cashed in the 2014 One Drop. David Einhorn made the money in the 2012 One Drop and is near the finish line again.
Byron Kaverman sits on the bubble but is far from immediate danger. Kaverman bought in on Day 2 and won a key flip against Erik Seidel to stay alive on Day 2. The 2017 Super High Roller Bowl finalist has been in this spot before and earns his largest career score with a cash.
