The social media was soon full with congratulations and reactions from poker pros; here is a short compilation of these.

Fellow countryman Daniel Negreanu, although presumably a bit disappointed, made remarks on his Twitter on Duhamel being both the sixth PokerStars pro and the first Canadian to win the Championship: “WSOP spoiler alert: just woke up and saw that PokerStars has now produced 6 of the last 8 WSOP champs and Canada its 1st. Congrats kid!”

Michael Mizrachi, whom many considered to be one of the favourites to win the final table, also expressed his admiration for the young Canadian’s achievement: “Waking up!! Congrats to John Duhamel!!! Well done!! Great game Racener!! It’s all over… Now it’s time to grind!!”

Moreover, his HU opponent John Racener was also chivalrous enough to tweet that “Congratulations to Johnathan Duhamel. Still very happy with 2nd place. Would have loved to win it tho. I’ll be back to get it next year.” Taking into consideration the fact that Racener made it to the HU from short stack (when the table was 7-handed), it would not be surprising if he did actually have at least one more shot at the title.

Once again, we congratulate Duhamel, too, as well as every participant of this amazing Final Table!
