Kicker Problems Send Duhamel Out the Door

Limit Hold'em:

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 {9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{8-Hearts} 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 {J-Clubs} turn nor {6-Diamonds} river would provide him the help he needed and he exited in the middle of Level 7.
