€10,000 High Roller

Cheong and Duhamel Familiar Neighbors

Jonathan Duhamel and Joseph Cheong

Team PokerStars Pro Jonathan Duhamel has joined the party in this €10,000 High Roller event here at EPT Sanremo. He's currently seated right next to someone he knows very well, and that is Joseph Cheong.

During three-handed play at the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event, Cheong famously six-bet all in, but ran into Duhamel's pocket queens to get crippled. At the time, it was the largest pot in WSOP history and one that will go down in the record books. From there, Cheong finished in third place for $4,130,049 while Duhamel went on to win the event for a massive $8,944,310.

It's not quite the WSOP Main Event, but this is still a big buy-in tournament, and we'll be keeping an eye on these two for any big clashes.
