WSOP champion Jonathan Duhamel wins EPT High Roller

Tuesday, 1 February 2011

It’s always great when a World Series of Poker Main Event champion has further success in the poker world – from Greg Raymer’s deep run in the Main Event the year after he won it to Peter Eastgate’s pre-retirement victory in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Now Jonathan Duhamel has joined that club with a win at the EPT High Roller in Deauville.

“I’m so happy right now,” said Duhamel, who won $8,944,138 in November after beating John Racener to the WSOP Main Event bracelet. “I love poker!” Had we won over $9.1m in the space of three months we’d probably be inclined to agree.

The French-Canadian player won €203,232 for defeating Alain Confino heads-up with A-K against A-J in a one-on-one cooler that saw the PokerStars Pro win all the chips and take home the biggest payday of the event. He defeated a 58-strong field that created a prize pool of over half a million Euros.
