Jonathan Duhamel Now A Huge Favourite To Win WSOP 2010 Main Event

If Canadian pro Jonathan Duhamel (23) was a huge favourite to take down the prestigious WSOP tournament going into Saturday’s marathon final table, his chances just got considerably better after making it all the way to the heads-up phase of the WSOP 2010 Main Event.
Duhamel entered the final table with a massive 65.975 million chip stack and the clear table leader, with nearest competitors John Dolan (46.25 million) and Joseph Cheong (23.525 million) a good way behind.
However, it is the 24 year-old Florida poker pro John Racener who will now be squaring  off against Duhamel on Monday night, despite looking like the favourite to be eliminated from the competition with three players left.
After around 14 hours of play, Joseph Cheong tried pulling off an aggressive pre-flop bluff holding As-7h, which was always going to be difficult considering Duhamel had been dealt pocket queens.
The two big stacks then raised and re-raised each other, eventually going  all-in, while a short stacked John Racener sat back and couldn’t believe his good fortune.
Cheong’s ace failed to improve and losing the almost 170 million chip pot left him with a meagre 3 million chip stack and he was then eliminated soon after in 3rd for $4,130,049.
“It was the first time I had a real hand,” commented Duhamel, who now takes a huge,  more than 6 to 1 chip lead into the final heads-up phase of the tournament.
Jonathan Duhamel will have colossal 189 million in chips compared to Racener’s 31 million, and the Canadian now seems an overwhelming favourite to lift the title of WSOP 2010 Main Event Champion, and walk away with the US$8.9 million top prize.
After their 14 hour marathon session, Duhamel and Racener are now on a well deserved Sunday break and will be returning at 8pm PT on Monday to finish their final battle and conclude this year’s exciting WSOP Main Event Championship.
