Justin Bonomo is no longer a part of the Bodog team, and leaves behind the popular site to pursue other endeavors.
Ed Pownall, the Global Public Relations Director for BodogBrand.com, issued a statement in which the news was confirmed. It read as follows: “Bodog and Justin Bonomo have agreed that, with the transition of the Bodog-branded poker rooms to the Bodog Network in 2010, now was a natural time to re-evaluate the relationship and have agreed to part ways.”
Bonomo has career tournament earnings coming close to $2,500,000 and also has been implicated in a multi-accounting scandal way back in 2006. One of his biggest accolades of his poker career came in the 40th anniversary tournament at the 2009 WSOP, in which he finished 5th. And he is barely 25 years old.
PokerStars lifted the ban Bonomo had as a result of the multi-accounting incident in 2006 only recently, in April of last year, allowing Bonomo to once again play on that site.
Jean-Robert Bellande, another Team Bodog member, also took his leave from the team very recently. This means that the entirety of the current Team Bodog’s roster consists of just two players: David Williams and Evelyn Ng.
