Jonatha Duhamel is best known for winning the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event, casing in for a massive $8.944 million score and the Team PokerStars Pro is having a ridiculously fantastic 2012 so far. He's already cashed for nearly $1.4 million and we're only four months into the year.
A Quebec native, Duhamel attended college at Universite du Quebec a Montreal, but the only studying he does now is at the poker table. Since his big WSOP win, Duhamel has proved he was no one-hit wonder and been racking up the results. Post-WSOP victory, Duhamel has pocketed nearly $2 million in prize money from all around the world.
In 2011, Duhamel won €200,000 in the EPT Deauville €10,000 High Roller by taking down the event and then he went on to finish fourth in the NBC National Heads-Up Championship a month later for $125,000.
In 2012, Duhamel crushed the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure to the tune of four cashes, all final tables and over $1.2 million in winnings. The largest score from there came with a second-place finish in the $25,000 High Roller for $634,500, but he also took fourth in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $313,600 and won the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $239,830. Since the PCA, Duhamel recorded three more cashes including a second-place finish at the LA Poker Classic in the $5,100 No-Limit Hold'em event.
For most of Day 2, Duhamel was one of the larger stacks in this event, but some things didn't go his way and he finish on 654,000. That's good enough for sixth place overall to enter the day.
