Team Bodog and Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo Split

Published Tuesday, January 05, 2010 -

Team Bodog has been pretty successful for awhile, showing good performances and lots of spine tingling excitement. When some of those big money games are won it keeps the team in top playing condition. Team Bodog has decided in an amicable way to part company with one of it's poker team members Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo. Severing all ties sounds pretty final as the Bodog team tries to recover from sliding rankings. Last October, another high ranking professional was let out of any obligations to Bodog, Jean-Robert Bellande was released.

Toronto Canada native Evelyn Ng and Arlington Texas native David Williams are the surviving members of Bodog's once mighty team. These are both great players that are always entertaining to follow.

Loosing Bonomo is not a good thing for Bodog, his performances were exceptional. Bonomo has over $2.3 million in live tournament winnings, of which more than $450k was won at last year’s World Series of Poker. There, Bonomo notched an impressive five cashes and gained the Bodog brand considerable exposure after the final tabling the commemorative $40,000 buy-in NLHE anniversary event, where he finished in 5th place with $413,165. Some punters will be betting the poker star will show up soon on some other poker site. Bodog will in all probability fill in it's team as the rankings rebound in the coming months. Poker rooms are competing strongly for some of the pro poker players, knowing that the interest in the game is kept alive by the poker fan and watching the masters at work. Learning how to improve your game comes from watching and learning. Weathering the storm is what Bodog is does well and you could bet that Team Bodog will have it's day again soon.
