About 2 weeks ago Jonathan Duhamel, 23, won the 2010 WSOP Main Event and became 8.9 million dollars richer. Now you might think that the new multi-millionaire has been celebrating and spending lots of money since the big win. NO NO! Jonathan Duhamel has not spent any money on himself, however, he recently donated about $100,000 to Montreal Canadiens Child Foundation, but apart from that he has taken it very easy and also taken a well-needed break from poker.
"I wont play anything for a few weeks, but after this I will play as many tournaments as I possibly can. All my life I have made a living from playing poker and now I have the chance to play in the biggest tournament", Jonathan Duhamel says in an interview.
"Not about the money"
"I dont't think much about the money, it was more about the bracelet. It was the world champion title that I felt most proud of. Of course I'm happy for the money as well but I will continue playing poker"
First Canadian to win a WSOP Main Event
"I'm very proud to be the first Canadain ever to have won a WSOP Main Event. Now I will do everything to become as good ambassador for poker as possible for my county. Hopefully my win will help other Canadian poker players to win big WSOP tournaments."
