Late last year Duhamel’s home was invaded by two intruders who threatened and beat him before demanding access to Duhamel’s safe.
The thief’s took $115,000 in cash and jewelry worth about $50,000 including Duhamel’s World Series of Poker Championship bracelet.
Duhamel was forced to stay in hospital overnight with minor injuries.
It was later revealed that the ring-leader of the attack was a woman Duhamel dated for a short period named Bianca Rojas-Latraverse.
The twenty-one year old is charged with conspiracy, breaking and entering, aggravated assault, forcible confinement and armed robbery.
Rojas-Latraverse’s attorney announced yesterday that her client had decided to switch her plea to a guilty one as she had “a change of heart” and wanted to restart her life with a “clean slate”.
Duhamel did not comment yesterday.
Duhamel became the first Canadian poker player to win the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2010.
He proved that the victory wasn’t a fluke by winning the High Roller Event at the 2011 European Poker Tour and finished fourth in the 2011 NBC National Heads-Up Championship, losing to fellow World Series of Poker Main Event champion Chris Moneymaker in the final.
