Third Time is Not the Charm for Duhamel

Jonathan Duhamel on Day 1.

It has been a rough tournament for Jonathan Duhamel, who bought in twice and busted on Day 1. The Team PokerStars Pro decided to give it another go at the start of Day 2, but his run would last just shy of two levels.

In one of the last hands before the break, action folded to Vadzim Kursevich on the button and he raised to 17,000. Duhamel was next to act in the small blind and three-bet to 44,000, which prompted Kursevich to move all in. Duhamel called off for around 360,000 and the cards were turned up.

Kursevich: {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Duhamel: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}

The young Canadian was in great shape to double, though the {10-}{7-}{6-} flop did give his opponent a gut-shot straight draw. The {2-Hearts} turn put two hearts on the board to give Duhamel blockers, which made it all the more heartbreaking when an offsuit {8-} spiked on the river to eliminate Duhamel for the third and final time.
