The U.S. Poker Open officially ended yesterday with the tenth tournament on the schedule. Thirty-seven poker players played in the $50,000 event, and each of them wanted a bigger share of the $1,900,000 prize pool.
Martin Zamani did it best. In the final heads-up the American beat the experienced Nick Petrangelo and lifted the golden eagle statuette over his head. The $666,000 prize money was not the highest of his career, as Zamani received a payout of $895,000 at the 2019 Caribbean Adventure Series.
Note that the world’s most profitable poker player played at the final table: Justin Bonomo. In this tournament, the poker pro was limited to a modest fourth place and $204,000 in prize money. The top 3 All Time Money List at the moment looks like this:
Justin Bonomo – $60,483,000
Bryn Kenney – $57,582,000
Daniel Negreanu – $47,294,000.
Bryn Kenney is breathing quite loudly at Bonomo’s back. The gap is only $3,000,000, not much considering the prize money of modern tournament series. Maybe this year Bryn will be able to regain the lead.
Martin Zamani not only won Event #10, but also the overall series standings. In addition to the $50,000 championship bonus, Zamani joined Sean Winter, David Peters and Stephen Chidwick on the prestigious list of US Poker Open champions.
That concluded the U.S. Poker Open series. The high rollers have won hundreds of thousands of dollars and will move on to achieve their poker goals. All the most important results can be found in the Cardmates news feed.
