The semi-final which was played on the night of Saturday July 17 to Sunday July 18, 2023 will surely remain in the annals of poker. It took more than 17 hours of intense play and some breathtaking bad beats to go from 27 to 9 players. It is in particular the confrontation between Jonathan Duhamel and Matt Affleck with a gigantic pot of nearly 42 million dollars in chips on the table that will have marked this semi-final. Affleck with his max pair can only see his defeat in the wake of a Duhamel who cannot believe it. With this move, Jonathan Duhamel becomes cheap leader and takes a considerable lead over his opponents for the rest of the November tournament.
This fortnight has been marked by many twists and turns, and the appointment is therefore made in November to follow together this final of the world poker championships which promises to be the event of the new school year.
