Alright poker players it’s that time of year again, time to find out which no name player will be all that anyone talks about for two months only to be forgotten when they fail to do anything in the years to come. That’s right, it’s down to Heads up at the World Series of Poker, and following the routine of years past, it looks to be a one-sided matchup that will inevitably be won by someone too young to rent a car.
After a lengthy… well that may be putting it lightly…. After a GREULING 15-hour day, the November nine winded its way down to a lucky two in 23-year-old Quebecer Jonathan Duhamel and 24-year-old Floridian John Racener.
Odds at online gambling portals are running strong for Duhamel , who enters heads up play, which will air live Monday night on ESPN3.com, with a massive chip lead.
Racener, the more experienced pro of the two, will have to double up early to avoid being bullied out of a chance at the $8.9 million first prize, something even his opponent knows to be true.
“If I give (Racener) a little space, then he’s going to have room to do stuff,” Duhamel told The Star. “I just don’t want to double him up in the beginning, that’s for sure.”
