The huge run continues for Michael Addamo after taking down the $300,000 Super High Roller last week in Las Vegas for $3.2 million. The three-day event ran from Sept. 27-29 at the PokerGo Studio at Aria
Addamo faced some tough competition including players such as Daniel Negreanu, Alex Foxen, David Peters, and Seth Davies. The event attracted 21 entries for a prize pool of $5.2 million.
In the end Addamo faced off heads-up with three-time Super High Roller Bowl champion Justin Bonomo. The Australian was able to overcome Bonomo and add a nice bullet point to his poker resumé.
Addamo rolls again
This wasn’t the only event Addamo has taken down recently. He’s been on fire the last few weeks including winning the $50,000 and $100,000 Poker Masters high rollers.
Those wins also brought him the purple jacket for being the series overall champion. Since Sept. 17, the Aussie has won over $5.1 million.
“It really hasn’t sunk in,” Addamo told PokerGO News after the win. “I think maybe after a week with some good sleep and rest that I’ll be like, ‘All right, that was an insane week.’”
Addamo now has surpassed former 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Hachem on the all-time Australian poker money list.
Addamo now plans on playing the entire WSOP including some of the bigger buy-in events.
