Ahead of their annual event in Las Vegas, the Super High Roller Bowl made a stop in Macau for a HK$2,100,000 buy-in event.

It may have been on another continent, but it was a very familiar looking final table, in fact it was arguably the toughest final table in poker history, so much so I feel it would be an insult to even have to mention the previous accomplishments of these players (all of whom have at least one notable win or seven-figure score to their name in the last 18 months).

Isaac Haxton, David Peters, Stephen Chidwick, Bryn Kenney, Dominik Nitsche and Rainer Kempe all featured, most of them took home seven-figures for their troubles. 

But it would be Justin Bonomo who triumphed, defeating Patrik Antonius heads-up for HK$37.830.000 (roughly $4,821,516).

This is Bonomo's biggest career cash and takes his lifetime earnings up to $25,195,747, moving him four places up to 14th on the all time money list.

This was also a re-entry and Fedor Holz was said to have fired six bullets in this event, which is staggering in itself.

Last night 30 players were drawn in a lottery to see who would play in May's Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas, find out who got there here
