Congrats to my fellow Quebecer Jonathan Duhamel! 23 and on top of the world. I hope he does better than Joe Cada, I saw Joe play on Pokerstars The Big Game show - not too impressive :-/

Of course I have to say '' congratulations, you played best poker at table '' and it's true. But I'm just a bit disappointed for Filippo. Anyway I had chance to watch final table live, thanks to an italian monothematic channel ( which I can't say name of ).

Duhamel was really showed really good performance on the final table. I was a bit disappointed by the Racener's HU play - only one raise from button in 43 hands?

And when we take taxes into account, he won about 4,xxx million only Sad 48% of earnings taxed...Crazy
 xdonkingx12/11/2010 00:38:48 GMT
wow, simply amazing, winning the biggest touneament of the year and shipping 8 millions... Smile

with 8 millions on the pocket, i think its time to never play poker again, buy an paradise island in caribe and taste all that money Smile
