The poker pros will tell you that the WSOP Main Event is the softest tournament in the world. We doubt the same can be true for the WSOPE Main Event. Take a look at this table for example:
|1||Benny Spindler||EPT London Winner|
|5||ElkY||What hasn't he won?|
|8||Jonathan Duhamel||WSOP Main Event|
|9||James Akenhead||Poker Million|
So a great table and the World Champion is having a rough time:
Duhamel raised to 500 in the hijack and the big blind called. The flop was and the big blind check-raised to 2,000 forcing Duhamel to fold his hand and lose his 625 c-bet.
Then Mesbah Guerfi raised to 500 in first position and Jonathan Duhamel three-bet to 1,350 a few seats to his left. The two of them shared a flop of and Guerfi check-called a 1,500 Duhamel bet. The turn was the and the same action ensued but this time for 4,200. The river was the and the strategy switched with Guerfi betting 6,000. Duhamel thought for a while and raised to 16,500. The bet was enough to end Guerfi's tournament but he made the call and Duhamel mucked his hand. Guerfi tabled to pick up the pot.
