Justin Bonomo has recently made headlines in the world of poker by winning $60,222,952 in live poker tournaments, making him the all-time leader on poker's money list once again. Bonomo's success in the 2023 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $250,000 Super High Roller helped him to cross the $60 million mark, becoming the only player with more than $60 million in live tournament earnings.


Justin Bonomo Heads All-Time Money List with $60 Million

Bonomo's recent trip to the Bahamas for this year's PCA series was a successful one. He placed 44th in the PCA Main Event for $29,400 and followed that up with a first-place finish in a $25,000 NL hold'em event for $574,530. He saved his biggest cash result for last when he placed sixth in the $250,000 Super High Roller for $664,900.

Bonomo has long been competing with Bryn Kenney for the top spot in poker's all-time money list, with Daniel Negreanu close behind. However, with his recent success, Bonomo has extended his lead as the leading all-time money earner to nearly $3,000,000. Kenney had reclaimed the top spot in February 2022, but since then, Bonomo has cashed for $3,028,305 in live poker tournaments, while Kenney has only recorded two live tournament cashes for $60,800 total.

Bonomo's two six-figure cashes at the 2023 PCA were big, but they do not rank among the top 10 live tournament scores of Bonomo's career. The top 10 live tournament scores include his victory in the 2018 WSOP $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop, where he won $10,000,000, and his first-place finish in the Super High Roller Bowl IV, where he won $5,000,000.
