    Poker Hands:
    23-year-old French-Canadian Jonathan Duhamel won the title in Las Vegas Monday night collecting close to $9 millions and became the first Canadian who won poker`s World Championship.

    He was close to speechless after the final hand and just said “I could never dream of that. It's so huge, so big. It's a dream come true for me. It's just amazing."

    Duhamel entered Monday's heads-up match for the title with a 6:1 chip lead over Racener. Racener eventually got short and called all-in with K8 suited. Duhamel had A♠ J♥, ace-high was good enough and while Racener collected $5,545,855 for second, the Main Event title, the glory and $8,944,310 was Duhamel's.

    This year's Main Event drew 7,319 players creating a $68,798,600 prize pool.

    Here's how the 2010 November Nine finished up:

    1. Jonathan Duhamel $8,944,310
