Jonathan Duhamel vs. John Racener Heads-Up for 2010 WSOP Main Event Title

Only one of these two made the 2010 WSOP Main Event final table...and it wasn't The Grinder.

After a long night with many unexpected blow-ups, Jonathan Duhamel will play John Racener heads-ups on Monday night for the 2010 WSOP Main Event title.

Duhamel started final table play as the chip leader, but saw his stack hacked down throughout much of early play. After briefly becoming short-stack, Duhamel grinded his way back up, eventually becoming the massive chip leader in a pot vs. Joseph Cheong. The pivotal hand and largest in WSOP history saw Duhamel’s Q-Q withstand an untimely blow-up/misread shove of Cheong’s A-7. From there, Subiime’s stack went up in smoke, and Duhamel found himself sitting with over 100,000,000 chips.

When play reboots on Monday at 8pm, the 23 year-old Duhamel will have a massive chip lead, bringing 188,950,000 to the table. The 24 year-old John Racener will have 30,750,000.

First place will pay $8,944,310. Second earns $5,545,955.

For his third place finish, Cheong banks $4,130,049, or about 33,000 ounces of weed–and not the dank stuff, but the good sticky shit.

Filippo Candio finished fourth for $3,092,545. Sadly, we’ll be denied reactions from his fans like this one, made after one of his double-ups.

And after ascending to the chip lead with five remaining, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi made some unpatented mistakes, flaming out in fifth for $2,332,992. The cash does move him ahead of Scotty Nguyen into sixth place on the all-time career tournament money winner’s list.
