Ukraninan Poker pro Leonid Bilokur seized the $25,000 buy-in Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure High Roller main prize from World Series of Poker champion, Jonathan Duhamel and took home his biggest win ever of $1,134,930.

Duhamel was a formidable opponent and held a 2 to 1 chip lead going into the heads up but could not overcome the Ukrainian who skillfully fought his way back after ups and downs.

Duhamel and Bilokur fought it out to the end after Internet pro Isaac Haxton was eliminated on a final table which included Jason Koon (chip leader at end of fourth round), Govert Metaal, Nicolas Fierro, Michael Telker and Randy Lew.

It was expected that Duhamel would take the top prize as he has a wealth of experience including three PCA tables under his belt. He had to settle for second place and earnings of $634,550.
