2010 WSOP Final Table

The grueling 2010 WSOP final table was about to come to an end and one of these two men – Canadian Jonathan Duhamel or USA’s John Racener – will walk off victorious. 

It was down to two men at the final table.

Favorite Michael Mizrachi walked away with $2.3 million and an impressive 5th place finish during the early morning hours Sunday.

Jonathan Duhamel, as the chip leader coming into the final, was a favorite to win.  He is an online cash game pro who has translated his Internet experience to the real world tables (his live tournament experience, we should point out, is limited).  Should he win, he’d be the first Canadian to do so. His top finish prior to this point came at a European Poker Tour stop in Prague in 2008 where he finished 10th. He also cashed in the 2010 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, and has two WSOP cashes prior to the 2010 WSOP main event where he will walk away with a minimum of upper six figures.

Florida resident Racener has 12 career WSOP cashes, more than the rest of the table other than Michael Mizrachi.  He finished fifth in Event 2 at the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe.  He would pay 7/1 odds with a win.
