Jonathan Duhamel dominated the field on the final day of the 2010 WSOP Main Event and once he eliminated Matt Affleck, took the chip lead and never looked back. When play was down to just 14 players he joined us to talk about his style of play and what critical moments so far got him the chip lead.
Duhamel is originally from Quebec, Canada and finished in 15th place in an event earlier this year at the World Series of Poker. He qualified into the Main Event through PokerStars.
At 22 years of age he is the youngest member of the 2010 November Nine and hails from Boucherville, Quebec, Canada. He is a former finance student who learned to play poker while hanging out with friends. He’s been able to take that knowledge and post multiple top-20 finishes at major poker tournaments. Among those deep runs include a great finish at an earlier event at the WSOP this year. He leaves the Rio with a stunning 65.95 million in chips to be the chip leader. He took out popular player Matt Affleck when play was down to just 15 players when his J-J was all in against Affleck’s A-A on a board of 7-9-T-Q. The river brought Duhamel an 8 for the straight where he won a 40+ million pot and took the chip lead and never looked back.
