The chip leader coming into the final table and early favorite Jonathan Duhamel has won the 2010 World Series of Poker and the $8.9 million jackpot. 

The 23-year-old poker pro is the first Canadian to win a WSOP event. Duhamel was only the sixth non-American to ever win the WSOP Main Event.

Duhamel overcame a huge field of 7,319 entrants who entered what was the second-largest WSOP Main Event in history.  The tournament began on July 5th, and took more than four months to complete, including the customary recess prior to the November Nine.

John Racener of Florida came in second place and walked off with $5,545,955 in prize money.
