$10,000 Main Event

The Once and Future Champ

Chad_Holloway • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

November Niner Bruno Politano opened for 450 and received four calls before 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Jonathan Duhamel popped it to 2,200 from the big blind. Politano called, the limpers folded, and it was heads-up action to the {10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop.

Duhamel bet 2,200, Politano called, and the {2-Diamonds} appeared on the turn. Duhamel bet again, this time 5,700, and again his Brazilian foe called. When the {5-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Duhamel shoved all in for 20,000 and Politano hit the tank hard. Several minutes passed before Politano folded, and Duhamel sent his cards to the muck unseen.
