Michael Addamo Super High Roller Bowl VI

Michael Addamo has just had one of the two best weeks out of anybody in the history of poker cemented by his latest victory at the Super High Roller Bowl VI , where he won the $300k buy-in tournament against a field of 21 players for the first-place prize of $3.4 million.

The victory was his third in a row in under two weeks and his biggest score yet.

Addamo battled a field of 21 players over the course of three days to take home the title. Throughout the series, Addamo was up against some stiff competition including some of the high stakes poker world’s greatest players.

Heading into Wednesday’s final table, it was Addamo, Justin Bonomo, Chris Brewer, Sean Winter and Alex Foxen battling it out. After Foxen and Brewer busted on the bubble, it was Addamo, Bono and Winter battling it out for a minimum of $1 million in prizes.

Winter was the first to fall of the three, putting Bonomo and Addamo heads-up with Bonomo holding a 3:2 chip advantage. After the pair battled it out for awhile, Addamo finished victorious after beating Bonomo with a diamond flush holding 72s against Bonomo’s pair of Queens with QTo.

Here is where each of the players finished up, each taking home seven-figure scores.

Addamo keeps up the momentum

September has been a great month to be Michael Addamo, as he took down three of the most prestigious tournaments during September — all in a row.

Earlier this month, Addamo won the final two events at the 2021 Poker Masters. He first took down Event #11, the $50,000 No Limit Hold’em to win a prize of $680,000. He then followed that up with a victory in the very next event, the $100,000 No Limit Hold’em to win a first-place prize of $1,160,000.

The two victories at the Poker Masters was easily enough to also clinch the coveted Purple Jacket, an honor previously earned by Steffen Sontheimer, Ali Imsirovic, Sam Soverel, Alexandros Kolonias and Eeelis Parssinen.

The three wins give Addamo a total of $5,242,000 in prize money over the last couple of weeks, increasing his total live tournament earnings to $13.5 million. It’s enough to put Addamo on top of the Australian All-Time Money list — overtaking fellow Australian Joe Hachem — and move up to 97th all-time.
