Canadian Duhamel wins $8.94M at World Series of Poker
MONTREAL - It's been a wild career path for Jonathan Duhamel these last few years: Factory worker. College dropout. And, now, high-stakes poker millionaire.
The transformation culminated Monday night when the 23-year-old Montrealer won the World Series of Poker main event title in Las Vegas and US$8.94 million.
"It's a dream come true right now," Duhamel told the crowd at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino as confetti fell from a theater ceiling. "It's like the most beautiful day of my life."
