Jonathan Duhamel WSOP Bracelet Stolen in Home Invasion

Jonathan Duhamel, last year’s World Series of Poker Main Event winner, became the victim of a brutal home invasion Wednesday.  Two masked men forced their way into his home in a suburb of Montreal, beating up Duhamel and getting away with his diamond encrusted WSOP bracelet.

His agent, Yves Bouchard, told the media that Duhamel was released from the hospital and is doing fine. 

“He’s recovering,” Bouchard told Bloomberg News.  “Obviously, he took a beating, but nothing is broken.”

The attack occurred in the quaint Montreal suburb of Boucherville.

Also taken were a Rolex watch given to the 24-year-old by in honor of his tournament win along with an undisclosed amount of cash.  It was not immediately known Duhamel had been targeted or if the home invasion was a random attack. 

Duhamel had won $8.9 million in last year’s WSOP event.   He is the first Canadian to have achieved such an honor. 

This story is obviously quite fluid right now and developments will be posted on the website as warranted.
