Justin ‘ZeeJustin’ Bonomo wins first WCOOP title

bonomoHe’s one of the biggest poker stars in the world, with over $5 million in live tournament winnings ($2 million of which was earned by winning the EPT Grand Final Super High Roller event in May this year), but Justin ‘ZeeJustin’ Bonomo had never won a WCOOP title. Until now that is, because last night Bonomo took down the $530 Razz tourney – after overcoming ‘to0dey’ heads-up – to win the first prize of $36,765.16. His joy was encapsulated in one short tweet: “I won a WCOOP!”

Meanwhile, a host of well-known players contested the final table of WCOOP-48 – $320 Mixed NL Hold’em / PL Omaha, with 2011 WCOOP Player of the Series Joel Adam ‘2FLY2TILT’ Gordon finishing fourth for $24k, Jason ‘Taknapotin’ Somerville coming fifth for nearly $17k, and David ‘Betudontbet’ Emmons coming sixth for $13.5k. In the end though, it was ‘mookstar’ from Canada who took the victory to scoop a first prize worth nearly $60k.

In the other result from last night, ‘Puropoker123’ became Panama’s first ever WCOOP winner, after he outlasted the day 2 opposition in event 46 – $320 NL Hold’em [2x Chance] to win the first prize of $139,104.
