WSOP 2010 Final 8pm Today: Duhamel And Racener Go Heads-Up For Poker Glory

The waiting to decide who will be crowned the WSOP 2010 Main Event Champion is almost over as Jonathan Duhamel (23) and John Racener (24) prepare to battle it out for the grandest prize in the whole of tournament poker.
The difference in chip counts between the remaining two poker gladiators promises to make for an action packed, if not potentially brief heads-up final battle.
Duhamel begins with 188.95 million in chips to Racener’s 30.75 million and with play ending on 600k/1.2m blinds and 200k ante, Racener will have a lot of his poker options severely limited from the start.
However, John Racener is by far the more experienced player of the two with $1,239,951 million in live tournament earnings over four years, prior to this year’s WSOP 2010 Main Event. In comparison, Duhamel had earned just $108,987 but, as he explains:
“I don’t have much tournament experience. I’m a cash game player but I’m confident in my game.”
John Racener may also have a bit of extra luck on his side, too, after being the short stack three-handed at the final table when the two monster stacks decided to launch war on each other. Cheong’s aggressive pre flop assault holding A-7 to Duhamel’s pocket queens led to his eventual exit in 3rd, setting up the Duhamel/Racener heads-up finale.
Racener could hardly believe the fortunate turn of events and commented later;
“I was really shocked. If they were smart they would’ve waited for me to get knocked out and not risk that kind of prize money or the chance at heads up”
“I thought for sure I was going to have to double on them and my buddy said, ‘Watch, they’re going to end up tangling up,’ and that’s what happened. It worked out perfect for me.”
Play gets underway in Vegas at 8pm Monday when this long anticipated and exciting WSOP 2010 Main Event Final draws to its ultimate conclusion.
