Jonathan Duhamel - 8th Place

Pot-Limit Omaha

Hand #4: 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Jonathan Duhamel opened for 65,000 under the gun and received calls from George Danzer and Matthew Ashton, who were in the hijack and big blind respectively.

When the flop fell {6-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}, Ashton checked, as did Duhamel, and Danzer bet 130,000. Ashton folded and then Duhamel check-raised the pot to 600,000. Danzer pushed back with a three-bet and Duhamel called off his remaining chips.

Danzer: {j-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
Duhamel: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Danzer was ahead with two pair, but Duhamel had an over pair with an open-ended straight draw. The {Q-Hearts} turn gave Duhamel a pair of queens, but he needed help on the river to stay alive. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {4-Hearts}.

Duhamel rapped the table, shook hands with the remaining players and then took his leave in eighth place, good for $207,630.
