Adding to what is now becoming quite a long list of World Series of Poker bracelet winners from Quebec, Jason Duval has ground his way to the top of the pack to become the 7th Canadian bracelet winner so far of the summer. “Bebe Chien” started Day 3 in jeopardy as one of the shortest stacks, but obviously used the “chip and a chair” proverb to rectify the situation. Through this victory, Duval has also broken our past previous all time bracelet count in any past year, as well as setting the new the record for any non-US country at the WSOP.
Known as @bebe_chien in the poker world and in the Twitterverse, Duval’s profile reads “A baby dawg trying to find his place in a world of pit bulls”, though after winning more than $521,000 in Event #28, a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em with 2,115 entries, it looks like an edit is in order:
“@bebe_chien qui ship un deuxième bracelet pour le Québec ! Un premier pour St-Georges !! Bouuuuuuuuuya !!” — Bob (@Blackpoule)
With a star studded rail including the likes of Timothy Adams, Marc-Andre Ladouceur, Liv Boeree, Philippe Boucher and many more top pros, it looked like it’s also going to be quite the celebration party, or parties as the case maybe, to be had in Duval’s immediate future:
The bracelet win comes on the heels of another very respectable score for Duval in the World Poker Tour Canadian Spring Championships $3,000 No Limit Hold’em, where Duval placed 3rd for nearly $200,000, bring his live tournament winnings to nearly three-quarters of a million dollars so far in 2013.
A big congratulations to Jason!
