Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Duhamel Dusted, Trend Not Bucked

[user80015] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Jonathan Duhamel Done Early in Day 3

Reigning World Champion Jonathan Duhamel pushed his last 23,000 into the pot and Michael Trujillo made the call from the button.

Duhamel: {Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Trujillo: {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

With Duhamel at risk, the {5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop would leave him drawing dead, and once the dealer dropped the {J-Spades} and {5-Spades} on the turn and river, Duhamel was forced to leave his seat $9,738 richer.

"Good game!" Duhamel announced as this World Champion will have to wait another day for his second bracelet.
