Jonathan Duhamel Earns Second Career Gold Bracelet

Published by on July 1, 2015

Jonathan Duhamel took home the 2015 WSOP $111,111 One Drop High Roller and earned $3,989,985 in the process. This is Duhamel’s second career gold bracelet. He climbed into 8th place in career money earnings with $16,738,193.

“I feel so amazing right now,” said Duhamel. “It doesn’t get any better than that. I mean, the biggest buy-in of the summer, its for a charitable cause in One Drop… all those things combine to make probably like my second best day ever. After the main event.”

Duhamel beat out a field of 135 well seasoned players including Phil Hellmuth and Dan Colman. Colman knocked out Dan Perper in fifth place and Ben Sulsky in fourth to take a sizable chip lead into three-handed play with Duhamel and retired manufacturing company owner Bill Klein. Duhamel was able to pick up some big pocket pairs in key spots against Colman to find two huge double ups. Colman was left short and got his last chips in preflop with the Kspades/Jspades against Klein’s pocket aces.

Here are the final table results:

1 Jonathan Duhamel $3,989,985
2 Bill Klein $2,465,5221100
3 Daniel Colman $1,544,121880
4 Ben Sulsky $1,118,049660
5 Dan Perper $873,805550
6 Phil Hellmuth $696,821440
7 Anthony Zinno $565,864330
8 Sergey Lebedev $466,970220
