Jonathan Duhamel On The Home Invasion

On Wednesday morning two unknown persons broke into Jonathan Duhamel's (the 2010 WSOP Main Event Champion) house in Boucherville, Quebec, Canda and attacked him. Police arrived at the scene shortly after and Duhamel went to the hospital for treatment of the wounds he got from the attack.

Ouch! So I was right, they wanted the bracelet...

But I wonder, how much does it worth? And how the hell are they gonna be able to sell it to anyone? =/

I just hope they get caught!

Home invasion is a growing problem, especially with such high unemployment and even larger debts that individuals are enduring. It seems the peretrators knew what they wanted so they had knowledge of the victim(Duhamal). Could have been a jilted "friend", or shady aquaintance with a bone to pick, possibly some type of gang initiation or something like that. A lot of wierd people in Quebec.

I bet it will be hard to sleep at night a couple of months after an happening like that. A mans home is like his fortress and when he is attacked within the walls he knows it isnt safe ...

A lot of weird people everywhere... Disagree

According to a site, Peter Eastgate sold his bracelet for about 150k on e-bay for charity Shock

I think they were professionals, they knew what they were looking for and they knew how to scare him enough to make him give every valuable thing he had in his house at the moment. (he said he was scared for his life at some point) I'm pretty sure that they knew he kept the bracelet on him. And I think that is a big mistake, considering how much it's worth I would definetly put it in a safe deposit box or something.

Do you guys think this event could affect his poker game? Confused

I have lived in Quebec my whole life, travelled through a lot of provinces and states in the US, as well as several times to the Costa Blanca region of Spain where my parents are from, and I haven't seen that Quebec has a higher proportion of "weird" people than anywhere else.

The only thing that I find weird is that personally, if I won millions of dollars in front of the whole world like he did last year, my house would have some pretty decent security features. What's a few thousand in security when you have made millions? As far as his poker game, home invasion must be a very traumatic experience. I have had some of our storage buildings broken into over the years (we have a small farm), and every time the sense of being violated and the feeling of anger is very strong. To be bound and beaten in your own home is a whole other level, and he should probably get some form of counselling.

I dont know if this two criminal have much interest in keeping the bracelet for them. The idea should be to sell it, but who - rather than the owner - will want to buy an engraved bracelet of the WSOP? I believe this two burglers will contact Jonathan Duhamel in the future to see how much is he willing to pay to get it back, that would be the only way profitable for them. Maybe he can catch them if he tells the police if it happens for them to call him.

damn those bracelet wanter's- just play some poker you losers, or go to a decent jewelry manufacturer and he will make you a carbon copy of the bracelet- just don't forget him to ask to engrave "i'm a loser" on the bracelet... Stupid

Definitely don't know if I agree with the original poster. Intelligent robbers always case vimtims and choose ones with high value low risk. And to be bound an beaten seems pretty personal (uness of course they did it just because he wasn't co-operating) so maybe they did know him in some way.

------------
Also I agree it makes sencs to stow away something as precious to you as your bracelet but what's the point in owning it if you never wear it?

assuming he had his bracelet when he got robbed,how could the thieves sell the bracelet ?

Wishing Jon a speedy recovery

I LOL at those robbers. They cant even rob like normal people would. Stealing something you cant sell anywhere good job. Guess they are called donks as well in the underground world.
And beating a helpless man 2 vs 1 takes a lot of balls...

But when i think about it might be personal. Wouldnt be first time poker player is connected to some "not so trustworthy" people.

Hope it s just random. Wish you fast recovery. Thumbs Up

If you ask me it was pretty stupid to take the wsop bracelet, i mean no way you could sell that without being busted...

It's sad to hear these things happen in this holiday season...

I remember when Jonathon won his WSOP bracelet in 2010 and I hope this and all your items are returned. THis is bullpoop to lose things that can not be replaced, but we are all glad your still with us. I pray they catch the crooks and punish them to the laws fullest extent. I know times are hard out there for some people, but there are programs and charities to assist people who seek the support. Good Luck to you and all in the future.

I was born and raised in downtown Montreal...I left when the Frenchmen went balistic. This doesn't surprise me one bit. Not saying they're all the same cause I know some good ones(Frenchman) because its a melting pot, this is bound to happen more often than not. Growing up there I've seen a ton of crap better left unsaid.

Yeah right, like a language defines who you are. So dumb way to think. Generalising = being stupid in my opinion. You're 56 years old, grow up man.

By the way, there's exactly as much crime in ontario per habitant... Confused

Loads of 1%ers in le belle Province!

They came to strong arm him and he like i would have, folded like a lawn chair. They kept saying give us more until they were pretty sure there wasnt much else to have.

The fact he was left alive is enough evidence for me to know they weren't pros. Likely prospects or low level goons. I love pretending to know what im talking about.

Just glad he survived.
