Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Defending Main Event Champ Running Good in 2011

• Level 5: 600-1,200, 0 ante

In his heads-up duel with Phil Laak, last year's WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel is cruising along and appears poised to follow his storybook run with another strong series. Duhamel currently holds a sizable lead over Laak and seems to be winning the big pots while letting Laak take down the small ones. Currently, Laak has utilized his two 25k chip add-ons, while Duhamel still has an add-on in reserve.
