Jonathan Duhamel Wins Third WSOP Bracelet in Berlin

Jonathan DuhamelJonathan Duhamel Wins Third WSOP Bracelet in Berlin has won the 2015 WSOP Europe’s final event, the €25,600 No Limit Hold’em, after besting a field of 64 players over three days to capture its first place prize of €554,395 ($628,915), and secure a third career WSOP bracelet. Following a win which now boosts his live career earnings to $17,579,964, the 28 year-old Canadian pro commented:
“It was one of the toughest tournaments I’ve played in my life. To be able to make it a long way and win it, it means a lot. It means everything to me. I’ve said it before, but this never gets old. It’s such an amazing feeling. Let’s go for number four.”
After the final table of six got started, Jonathan Duhamel (A-7) bounced Germany’s Fedor Holz (10-9) from the competition in 6th for €96,625, before being dealt A-J and doing likewise to a short-stacked Mustapha Kanit (Q-5) in 3rd (€227,145) to usher in heads-up play against Belgiulm’s Davidi Kitai.
At the start of the final phase, the two players were almost even in chips, but soon after Jonathan Duhamel managed to seize the initiative and before long the deciding hand was played with Kitai all-in preflop holding J-7, and up against the pocket sevens of his opponent. The A-K-2-8-7 board subsequently sealed the deal, and so Davidi Kitai had to be contented with a runner-up finish worth €342,620 , while Jonathan Duhamel was crowned the 2015 WSOPE High Roller champion. Commenting on his victory, Duhamel said:
“I think I’m playing well these past couple of months, but I’ve been lucky as well. When those two things combine, magic can happen. To be honest, when I won the Main Event I told myself I was going to win a bracelet every five years. I won one this summer and that was great, and then this happened.. I’ve never had a goal to try and win ten bracelets or anything. It’s just every time you play a tournament, you try to win it and when there’s a bracelet on the line, it means even more.”
Final Table Results:
1. Jonathan Duhamel €554,395
2. Davidi Kitai €342,620
3. Mustapha Kanit €227,145
4. Samuel Chartier €160,775
5. Christoph Vogelsang €121,020
6. Fedor Holz €96,625
