Jonathan Duhamel emerged from a starting field of 7,319 to become the first Canadian to win the World Series of Poker's Main Event and a first prize of just under $9 million.
Floridian John Racener took home $5.5 million as the runner-up. The combination of the 23-year-old Duhamel and 24-year-old Racener made for the youngest heads-up match-up in WSOP Main Event history.
On the final hand, Duhamel's pair of 4s with an ace kicker beat Racener's 4s with a queen.
