PCA High Roller: Bilokur defeated Duhamel heads-up for $1.1 million

Posted on Monday, January 16, 2012 by "T".
Last Friday, Leonid Bilokur and Jonathan Duhamel battled it out on the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller final table. Duhamel played amazing on the final table and got to heads-up with a 2-1 chip lead over Bilokur. But Bilokur didn't throw in the towel. Instead he showed no respect whatsoever for the former world champion since he took down pot after pot. Small pots in the beginning, the[...]   Read more » PCA High Roller: Bilokur defeated Duhamel heads-up for $1.1 million

yep agreed the memories of such a disappointing heads-up match will haunt duhamel for some time imo. probably he was already picturing himself with the trophy, and heads-up was a no rollecoaster, it was just a one way street- few believed this was going to be the case (maybe some expected that- but duhamel being the one to crush leonid, certainly not the other way around)

Wow. Duhamel loosing a 2 to 1 advantage HU? If this wasn’t official almost nobody would believe it. This seems something any pro can only dream about, having this huge advantage to his opponent when reaching final HU! And Duhamel had it and looks like he didn’t had what it takes to deal with it. I bet all pros train the situation of being in disadvantage in a final HU, but maybe Duhamel never trained how to win when having double the chipstack of his opponent Smile

Once you achieve the status that players such as Duhamel have they're not as happy about the money as they are the win / recognition of being one of the best. I actually thought duhamel would take it, but it doesn't always mean the best player will win. Good Luck!

I'm happy to know that the beating Duhamel took last month didn't affect his game Smile Finishing second is good, you never know how a HU match will end no matter how good the players are...

Anyways, if Duhamel can keep playing like he did in this tournament, he will definetly be around for a long time!
