Andrew Ranger: Third Victory In A Row At The GP3R.

The crowd favorite, Andrew Ranger, was sitting on pole before the start of the NASCAR Canadian Tire series at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres.

Everything seemed to be perfect for the driver from Roxton Pond but a contact with J.R. Fitzpatrick during the third lap relagated Ranger to the ninth place.

After the minor incident, the crowd was concerned about Ranger's chances and thought that this third win in a row would never materialize. But Andrew fought back and started his comeback towards the front of the field.

Then, after the second caution flag of the event, Ranger dove inside his opponents in turn 1 and took back the first place for good. The crowd saluted Ranger's combativity in loud fashion all around the circuit until the end of the race.

Andrew Ranger crossed the finish line in first place, his third consecutive victory in Trois-Rivieres. J.R. Fitzpatrick and D.J. Kennington completed this 2010 GP3R podium.

Once again we had perfect weather all weekend long. The festivities were memorable all weekend long and the event organization can claim a huge success once again this year.

Congratulations Andrew and see you in 2011 in Trois-Rivieres!

The Chance Of A Lifetime For Jonathan Duhamel.

We now know who will take part of the final table at the 2010 World Series Of Poker. The fierce competition lasted a total of eight days, a grueling test of stamina.

Jonathan Duhamel, a 22-year old Canadian from Boucherville, Quebec, is the current chip leader with an impressive 65,975,000 chips. His nearest rival is John Dolan, who trails Duhamel by nearly 20 million chips.

Any poker player would kill to be in Duhamel's position at this stage of the competition. The young poker pro is aware of his glorious opportunity and will try to keep his streak going.

Duhamel could become the first Canadian to win the WSOP and the news of his final table appearance made headlines all over the country. The incredible amount of support shown towards our newest poker star thus far has been impressive and will help promote the game in the province of Quebec.

The nine finalists received just over $811 000 for making it to the final table. The $8.9 Million first prize and the coveted WSOP bracelet will be disputed in early November.

The best of luck to all the players who remains in the competition:

1 Jonathan Duhamel 65,975,000
2 John Dolan 46,250,000
3 Joseph Cheong 23,525,000
4 John Racener 19,050,000
5 Matthew Jarvis 16,700,000
