Ben Yu wins $50,000 High Roller No Limit Hold'em event at WSOP

If you’re going to start playing the $25,000 buy-ins and above, Justin Bonomo is a pretty good guy to get advice from. After taking a couple of shots earlier this year in some high roller fields, Ben Yu reached out to Bonomo for some advice on how to improve his no-limit game.

The primarily mixed games player took the advice he was given and put it to good use. The 32-year-old Las Vegas poker pro won his third World Series of Poker bracelet in the early hours of Sunday morning. He defeated 128 entries in the $50,000 no-limit hold’em high roller event. He earned $1,650,773 and his first bracelet in no-limit hold’em.

“I would say that this year, I’ve started to play some more high rollers,” said Yu after his victory. “I played some of the $25k’s in Florida, I played the U.S. Poker Open in February and after playing a few of those I actually wrote a message to Justin Bonomo.”

He was blunt in his message to the two-time bracelet winner and one of the most talented players on the planet.

“I wrote ‘I like playing high rollers. I cash for more money and people irrationally think I’m better at poker because of it. I get to eat free food, free good food using comps. I would like to do this more often and I’m willing to put in whatever work is required for me to do so,’” said Yu.

Bonomo responded that he needed to put in the work away from the table, do more work with PIO solvers and really build out your ranges for every spot.
