The folks from WickedChopsPoker.com believe that Quebec, Montreal player Jonathan Duhamel winning the 2010 World Series of Poker would be bad for the event.

The reasons given:

  1. Celine Dion is from Quebec.
  2. Quebec’s hottest women are European and American tourists.
  3. Montreal has a ton of strip clubs but all the strippers in those clubs are from Montreal. It’s like having unlimited beer but the beer is Coors Light

Plus, it’s no lock that Duhamel is a permanent presence on the circuit after the win, they added. While this is GREAT for Duhamel, it’s bad for the poker economy.

The winner of this year’s WSOP Main Event, the second largest in the 40-year history of the WSOP with 7,319 entrants, will take home a staggering $8,944,310 in prize money.  He will also be presented with the most coveted achievement in all of poker -- the World Series of Poker Main Event Championship gold bracelet.
