With the preparations for the World Series of Poker (WSOP), many teams are making some changes and to this end, Bodog Life has just announced that the young American poker player Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo will be joining their team alongside David Williams, Evelyn Ng, and Jean-Robert Bellande. He will be part of all the Team Bodog online games as well as representing the Bodog brand at all the major tournaments and championships including the WSOP.
Justin is very excited to be part of the team and revealed that this sponsorship is something he had been dreaming about for a while. He already knows the other team members well and he said that he is extremely happy. Justin is already a feared poker player offline as well as online, and CEO of Morris Mohawk Gaming Group mentioned that he was “thrilled” to have him join their professional elite.
The Bodog lifestyle and brand fit Justine perfectly and with the already $1 million in live tournament earnings he has won, big things are expected from him in the future. He just missed his first major live win at the WSOP Circuit Caesars in Las Vegas, and his new endorsement deal with Bodog is sure to bring in even more solid performances.
Justin broke into the poker circuit when he was just 19, making him the youngest poker player in history to make the televised European Poker Table. He went on to dominate the US poker tournaments when he became legal last year.
To make his official tournament debut for Team Bodog, Justin has his sights set on the WSOP. He aims to at least win a bracelet for the team and admits he will not be sleeping much, taking part in an extensive 25 event schedule. He hopes to play about 16 hours every single day. Talk about dedicated!
Justin’s Poker Tips
After making a big name for himself in the poker world after just 2 years of playing in the professional circuit, Justin has revealed a bit about his processes and strategies.
“For me, ever since I started playing poker, I’ve been extremely dedicated to learning the game as best as I possibly can. There’s a saying in poker, that it takes five minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. I hate that saying, because I think even with a lifetime, you still can’t master the game – it’s that complicated. I delve into any learning materials I can find, I always discuss hands with friends, and I think because of that, I’ve constantly grown as a player over the years, and I’ve become the strong player I am today. Even with the success I’ve had, I don’t claim that I’ve mastered the game of poker. I’m going to keep the same strategy, trying to make sure that my game keeps growing every single day.”
