A big weekend in Berlin saw Canadian Jonathan Duhamel take home €554,395 (roughly $610,500), the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe €25,600 High Roller title, and his third WSOP gold bracelet.
Just as the final table of six began, Duhamel made it known he was there to win when he doubled down on chip-leader Mustapha Kanit.
“I think I’m playing well these past couple of months, but I’ve been lucky as well,” Duhamel told PokerNews. “When those two things combine, magic can happen.”
Fedor Holtz was the first to be eliminated when Duhamel called on his recent luck and sent the German player packing. Holtz called all-in with his 10♤, 9♡ against Duhamel’s A♢,7♤ but failed to pull together a winning hand. Christoph Vogelsang was next to go, eliminated by Italy’s Kanit.
When it came down to runner-up David Kitai and Duhamel, the eventual winner took a strong lead with an early and aggressive check-raise. With an A♤, K♤, 2♤, 8♡, 7♢ board, Duhamel’s 7♧, 7♡ was far and above Kitai’s J♡, 7♤ and the Canadian went home with the win.
Duhamel is no stranger to the gold bracelet, as the 2010 Main Event champ also took home the $111,111 No Limit Hold’em High Roller for One-Drop title earlier this year.
“It feels even better than the second one,” Duhamel said. “I don’t know why. Maybe because it’s two in the same year or maybe because this tournament was so tough. It was one of the toughest tournaments I’ve played in my life. To be able to make it a long way and win it, it means a lot. It means everything to me.”
