Known poker players are “easy to define” targets for robbers. Of course that, when someone has a lot of money, tends to increase his own security, and I believe Jonathan Duhamel wouldn’t be different. Having him with some wounds makes everyone think about a fight between him and the thieves. And at least something they should have took out of his house, even if it was just a porcelain cup, it must have nice value…

That is sad! To think the only way to ensure your security is to have to live with bars on your windows, an electronic security system and be hind locked doors. That's how many people live in the big cities especially in California. And, you don't have to be very wealthy to require those items to be safe from burglars. At least he's healthy and maybe can provide some leads for authorities. Good Luck to All!

It is actually the 2nd largest country in the world. As far as Mr Duhamel goes I would say that that really sucks. I hope they nail the buggers. I am very glad that he is ok.
