Jonathan Duhamel has managed to cash out big at PokerStars. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) champion – who was badly trampled when robbers, including former girlfriend Bianca Rojas-Latraverse, entered his Quebec home last December 21 – wants forget about that incident, and has most definitely started this year off in great form.
2010 World Series of Poker champion Jonathan Duhamel earnings sum up to $8,944,310 for his success at the main event – cashed in fourth place for $313,600 at the $100,000 buy-in Super High Roller tournament last Saturday at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA).
Duhamel, who has now cashed for over $550,000 at this year’s PCA, will surely be aiming to up that healthy return when the $25,000 buy-in High Roller event kicks off later today.
It comes as no great astonishment that the Canuck secured victory in this side event, though, as he has enjoyed a great series of results since winning the 2010 WSOP main event.
He collected $272,209 in January last year for winning the European Poker Tour (EPT) Deauville’s €10,000 buy-in High Roller event, and also came fourth for $125,000 at the $25,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em NBC National Heads-Up Championship in Las Vegas two months later.
Duhamel also finished in sixth place for $58,000 in the $10,000 buy-in Bounty Shootout at the Big Event in Los Angeles – also in March – was sixth again for $26,883 at EPT London’s £2,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em side event in October, and also left with $30,100 for seventh place at the World Poker Tour (WPT) Marrakech €3,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em main event in November.
