Last Friday, Leonid Bilokur and Jonathan Duhamel battled it out on the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure High Roller final table. Duhamel played amazing on the final table and got to heads-up with a 2-1 chip lead over Bilokur. But Bilokur didn't throw in the towel. Instead he showed no respect whatsoever for the former world champion since he took down pot after pot. Small pots in the beginning, then bigger pots as his confidence grew.
Duhamel almost seemed to be in shock when he had lost the lead, and he never managed to get back after this. Leonid Bilokur won the heads-up and received amazing $1,134,930. Duhamel received $634,550 for his efforts. A lot of money, but still a lot less than the first prize.The heads-up will most probably haunt Duhamel for a very long time.
