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

Heads-Up Play Begins at 8:00 PM PST!

Who's going to walk away with the jewelry?

Only two remain for tonight's heads-up battle for the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event title! Those two players are John Racener and Jonathan Duhamel. They're return at 8:00 PM PST to do battle. When it's all said and done, one of them will have etched their name into poker history.

Duhamel began the day on Saturday with the chip lead and although he didn't hold that chip lead throughout play, he got it back and is going into heads up play with a 6-to-1 chip lead over Racener. Don't count Racener out however, he's still in the game and his play has been solid as of late. The chip lead for him is just two double ups away. If Duhamel can ride the momentum he's had, however, he would become the first-ever Canadian to win the WSOP Main Event.

Given Duhamel's massive lead going into heads-up play, things may only last for a little while. Or, Racener could find a double up early and get right back in this thing to make it a long night. We'd recommend getting here promptly at 8:00 PM PST, or even a little bit earlier, for all of the action as only PokerNews can bring it to you live from the Penn & Teller Theater.
