The WSOP's perennial bridesmaid, Justin Bonomo, finally shook off the shackles of disappointment last night to claim his first bracelet.
Despite being one of the most accomplished young players in the game, Bonomo has always fallen short at the final hurdle when fighting for a WSOP title; however, the American pro rectified that problem yesterday when he beat Mike Sowers in Event #11. The $1,500 Six-Max event welcomed another impressive field - 1,587 runners to be exact - but at no point was the action more enthralling than heads-up. Both Bonomo and Sowers are respected pros and when their battle began it soon became clear it would be a test of attrition. Although Sowers held a 5:1 advantage a resilient Bonomo gradually chipped away at his opponent before one of the most impressive hands of the tournament played out.After Bonomo made it 75,000 to go, Sowers re-raised to 230,000 before Bonomo called. A Jc 3d 2s flop caused a bet and call from the two players before the turn brought the 7s. Another heavy bet from Sowers was met with another call from Bonomo forcing the dealer to present the 4s on the river. An all-in from Sowers still wasn't enough to push out Bonomo as he called with As 5s for a straight to beat his opponent's Jh 2h. That hand virtually sealed the deal and despite a mini-comeback from Sowers the match was soon after, leaving Bonomo to collect his first WSOP bracelet and $449,980.Event #11 - $1,500 NLHE Six-Man Result:1. Justin Bonomo - $449,9802. Mike Sowers - $278,518 3. Daniel Strelitz - $180,4. Lance Harris - $119,977 5. Niel Mittelman - $80,341 6. Taylor Paur - $55,703 7. Sebastian Pauli - $39,635 8.
