Live from Four Aces – Duhamel is in the House


Four Aces PokerWe are here again live at the famous Four Aces Poker Club on beautiful Saturday afternoon where Day 1B of the 1st annual Four Aces Open has commenced with a field of 46 competitors.

Today we have some local favourites competing including “OB” Oliver Baksic who won the Four Aces Classic last April and took home $96,000 and is seeking another major victory at the club. Also in the house is Bill Kontaratos AKA “Dr. Evil” from Laval who has had a number of cashes in notable tournaments this year across North America. That said, the player in the spotlight today is WSOP November Nine chip leader Jonathan Duhamel from Boucherville – a short drive from the Club. Many players will be trying to knock him out here to claim bragging rights for beating one of the Best players in the world. However, Jonathan certainly won’t make it easy for them, he looks to be in top shape today. Go DUHAMEL…

Stay tuned for a special interview with Jonathan here on later today! People are welcome to come by and check out the action at Four Aces and meet Jonathan and the Team Canada Poker and get a free t-shirt. It’s really easy and quick to get here, take Highway 20 to the Mercier Bridge, stay right on the 138 Direction Chateauguay and turn left at the second lights.

Here’s a quick chip update from Day 1A yesterday which played down to the following 12 players.

While the tournament was taking place last night, the Club was jam packed and full of excitement. The cash games were rocking and rolling and Four Aces’ bi-weekly signature $65 single re-buy tournament where club favourite SPIDER, AKA “Tom Danielidis” (LOL) lived up to his Team 990 radio challenge where he boasted that he would win this tournament. Sure enough, he bested 70 other players to win it and the top prize of about $1,500.
