Hands 17-21: Bonomo Dominating

Justin Bonomo
Justin Bonomo

Hand #17 Radoja raised his button to 40,000, and called a three-bet to 120,000 made by Bonomo. On the flop of {8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, Bonomo led out for a single white T100,000 tournament chip, and watched Radoja raise to 215,000. Bonomo quickly dropped enough white chips for a reraise to 900,000, setting Radoja all-in if he elected to call, but the Canadian pro released his hand.

Hand #18 Bonomo limped in for 20,000, and called Radoja's raise to 51,000 to see a flop of {8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades} hit the table. After Radoja led out for 41,000, Bonomo shipped his stack into the middle, forcing Radoja to muck once again.

Hand #19 Radoja raised his button to 40,000, but surrendered when Bonomo set him all-in for third consecutive hand.

Hand #20 Bonomo limped in, Radoja checked his option, and the {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop was checked down, as was the {a-Hearts} turn and {6-Spades} river. Radoja played the board with his {3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, and Bonomo's {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} was good enough to take the small pot.

Hand #21 Radoja limped in, and folded to Bonomo's all-in raise.

Hands 4-7: Not Afraid to Take a Flop

• Level 2: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Hand #4 Bonomo opened for 38,000 on the button, and Radoja came along to see the {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop. Radoja then check-called a bet of 75,000, and did the same when Bonomo bet 150,000 on the {A-Clubs} turn. The {q-Spades} on the river prompted both players to knuckle, and Bonomo's {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} was good over Radoja's {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}.

Hand #5 Radoja raised his button to 32,000 and Bonomo called, bringing a flop of {k-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} to the table. Bonomo tapped the felt, and then tossed his cards away after Radoja continued with another 32,000 bet.

Hand #6 Bonomo opened for 32,000 and Radoja came along. On the {10-Spades}{a-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop, Radoja check-called a bet of 32,000 and the {9-Spades} arrived on the turn. Radoja checked once more, and called Bonomo's bet of 80,000 to see the {q-Hearts} drop on the river. Another check by Radoja induced a bet of 150,000 from Bonomo, but this time Radoja was convinced and he mucked his hand after a contemplative swig from his coffee cup.

Hand #7 Radoja opened for 32,000, Bonomo flatted, and the flop fell {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Bonomo checked and called a bet of 32,000, and both players checked the action when the {j-Clubs} fell on the turn. After the {10-Clubs} came on the river, Bonomo checked for a third time, and Radoja's 58,000 bet was enough to claim the pot.
