Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Duhamel Widens the Lead


It might just be Jonathan Duhamel's day. He was in the big blind and called a pre-flop raise to 560,000 made by small blind Filippo Candio. Candio led out for 1.35 million of a queen-high flop, {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{4-Clubs}, and was called by Duhamel. The turn {k-Diamonds} was the exact opposite of a blank, and earned a check from both players. Things got even more connected when the river fell {10-Diamonds}. After Candio checked. Duhamel bet 3,675,000. Candio called with a Broadway straight, but Duhamel had gone runner-runner for a bigger hand, a diamond flush, with {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

Duhamel now has about 59.5 million. Candio is down to about 12.5 million.
