Jonathan Duhamel, the 2010 WSOP main event winner, had an unwelcome visit on Wednesday when thieves broke into his house Boucherville, Quebec, Canda. According to a poker news site, two unknown persons entered his home at 9:15am on Wednesday and attacked him. However, the news site can't confirm whether or not the thieves got away with something.

The Winnipeg Free Press reports that Duhamel was treated for wounds at the hospital, but released shortly after. It remains unclear who the 2 thieves are and why they targeted Duhamel's residence. No arrests have been made so far, and Duhamel has still not spoken to the media about the incident.

We will keep you updated as the investigation develops.

What an odd time to rob someone.
 TheMachineQC22/12/2011 10:24:41 GMT
Yes, very weird. We don't know yet why they did that. Probably to rob something very valuable, like his bracelet maybe? I don't think Jonathan is stupid enough to keep a lot of valuable stuff in his house though, we'll see.

Atleast he didn't get hurt too badly, they say he only suffered minor injuries.

hmm wonder what that was all about but atleast everybody is fine
 pochui22/12/2011 13:50:10 GMT
well big money attract big trouble, or thats usually the case...great news that everyone is fine and that closes the matter, police will take care of everything else i believe...

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…

if the bracelet was even taken is easier to identify these marginal, after all is not any in the world that has a main event bracelet kept in the house

Its just hurts to read something like this.. In the end, the only way to be happy is to have nothing-so you have nothing to lose or worry about, lol.. Hope everything will turn out fine ^_^
 Greenmohave22/12/2011 21:12:26 GMT
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!

 GIOMi623/12/2011 01:25:04 GMT
That is terrible, why do some people do not want to work and earn their money, but instead steal from others who work hard.
 pochui23/12/2011 15:16:31 GMT
yeah especially when they try to rob a guy who earned his money working very hard- playing some poker Hit PC by the way don't you think that stealing is also work- and actually not very easy one Mobster
 PhixedGear23/12/2011 16:04:47 GMT
No, I think they were looking for "Canada".
 tra2225/12/2011 02:28:46 GMT

Is Canda a country??
Dude I hope you were only joking... but in case you weren't I will let you know that yes it is. 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.

now that is funny I just called my country Canda Lmao Canada that is.
