Justin Bonomo will begin the final table as the overwhelming chip leader. He holds over 33% of the chips in play and has nearly twice as much as anyone else.

To say that Bonomo has had a good week would be an understatement. He first won the €100,000 Super High Roller for €1.64 million to kick things off and then went on to make an extremely deep run in the Main Event before eventually bowing out in 28th place for €35,000.

Prior to this week, Bonomo had just over $2.9 million in live tournament earnings. Headed into this final table just a handful of days later, his live tournament winnings now eclipse $5 million.

Of Bonomo's young career, he has 10 cashes of six figures or more, including his big win earlier this week. One of those came in May 2011 when he took fifth in the $100,000 Super High Roller event at the World Poker Tour's Ninth Annual Five Star World Poker Classic. For that finish, he earned $224,160.

The second-largest score on Bonomo's record came in 2009 when he had another fifth-place finish. This one was in the World Series of Poker's $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em event and he won $413,165. He also has three other WSOP final tables under his belt and a WSOP Circuit title from 2009.

With nearly one million more chips than anyone else at the final table, we just might be seeing another repeat performance from the €100,000 Super High Roller where Bonomo worked his way into the winner's circle with relative ease.
