Main Event Champ Jonathan Duhamel joins PokerStars

It was an unbelievable year for casino poker player Jonathan Duhamel, who ran through 7,319 players en route to a WSOP Main Event title. More importantly, Duhamel earned one of the largest cashes in poker history with a $8,944,310 top prize!

Obviously Duhamel’s success attracted the attention of numerous poker sites including the world’s largest site – PokerStars. In fact, Duhamel recently became the newest member of Team PokerStars as announced by their blog. The PokerStars blog read, “Though you might have assumed so by now, this morning PokerStars made it official: Duhamel, the 2010 Main Event winner, is the newest member of Team Pro.”

You can expect to see Duhamel representing PokerStars at lots of live events in the future, including the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure where he’s currently playing. So far Duhamel hasn’t had much luck at the PCA poker tables, but there’s still plenty of time for him to get something going.

Once Duhamel is done at the PCA, he’ll join forces with Daniel Negreanu to promote “Home Games.” Home Games is a unique concept that allows friends to start their own online poker club, and play against each other over the internet. This is perfect for those who want to play poker with their friends, yet don’t have the time to get a live home game together.

But Home Games is more than just some buddies getting together for a little friendly poker action. PokerStars will also be offering prizes to the clubs that meet certain requirements. One of the top prizes gives players the chance to fly to Macau, Austria, Buenos Aires or Vancouver to compete against Daniel Negreanu for major cash.

Negreanu is one of the most excited about the home poker games as he wrote on the PokerStars blog, “Nothing like the PokerStars Home Games has been offered before, and it’s so easy to use. You have so many options when you open up your poker club. You can customize it any way you want, just like you would in a home game with friends.”
