Action folded to 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Jonathan Duhamel in the cutoff and he put in a raise. Both the button and small blind got out of the way, but Ben Lukas opted to defend from the big. The flop saw Lukas check and Duhamel, who had 1,400 left, put out a bet. Lukas sprang to like with a check-raise, Duhamel three-bet before calling off to a Lukas four-bet.
Both players had flopped middle pair, but Duhamel had kicker issues. Neither the turn nor river would provide him the help he needed and he exited in the middle of Level 7.
