He is the first Canadian to win the World Series of Poker Main Event bracelet. He won over $8 million dollars. Will his streak continue? It seems that he can cash in on winning with more poker sites and casinos using him as a advertiser.I haven’t seen a winner duplicate and win again with the WSOP but winning is a big boost today at least in terms of the PR machine. And a winner must draw in a lot of new players.
Duhamel’s previous best poker work was in Europe on the European Poker Tour , where he made the final table of a €5,000 No Limit Holdem tournament in Prague and banked nearly $55,000. That tournament featured a solid final 10 that included Duhamel, Canadian poker pro Andrew “achen” Chen, Nasr El Nasr, and WSOP bracelet winner Sebastian Ruthenberg.
Duhamel also made the spotlight in the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, where he cashed for $17,000 after exiting in 151st place. Duhamel enjoys hockey and lives in Boucherville, Quebec. He was one of nine Canadian poker players to reach the 2010 WSOP Main Event at the Rio in Las Vegas.
Duhamel qualified for the 2010 WSOP Main Event through online poker site Pokerstars.
Update: He has gone on to win nearly $12,000,000 in live poker tournament play including winning the European Poker Tour and banking $300,000.
