Justin Bonomo made history in 2018 with his incredible tournament run and a staggering $25 million in earnings over the year. Within just six months he had topped the All-Time Money List on The Hendon Mob.
His victory in the $1 million buy-in Big One For One Drop for $10 million aided him to surpass Daniel Negreanu in the All-Time Money Rankings and also took the crown from the “Young Prince” – as Joey Ingram likes to call him – Fedor Holz in what had been the best tournament run in poker history.
Two weeks ago Paul Phua went to trial in Macau and has now been “found innocent of all charges in a criminal case file against him years ago in Macau.” The news was distributed this week via a press release.
Just as it was the case in the U.S. trial, things basically fell apart and charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence. In the U.S. it was, because evidence had been obtained illegally and was so dismissed, in Macau “experts testified that his phone and computer records conclusively showed that he had not participated in taking any bets and had not cooperated with any betting ring.”
