Joe Hachem Poker Professional

Before poker Joe Hachem and his family moved from Lebanon to Australia in 1972. In 2002, he gave up a career as a chiropractor due to a rare blood disorder in his hands, and decided to concentrate on poker.

Joe Hachem won the 2005 World Series of Poker (WSOP) $10,000 no limit Texas hold 'em Main Event, outlasting 5,618 other players, and winning $7,500,000. Hachem was short-stacked for much of the final table, and did not take a chip lead until there were just 3 players remaining. In the final hand, Joe Hachem called a pre-flop raise from $300,000 to $700,000 with his 7? 3?. The flop came 6? 5? 4?, giving Hachem a straight. When the turn brought the A?, Steve Dannenmann made the top pair (with an up-and-down straight draw) with his starting hand of A? 3?. Hachem bet, Dannenmann raised, Hachem moved all-in and was called. In the end, Dannenmann could only tie if the river brought a 7 (giving him the same straight), but the 4? on the river ensured Hachem the win.Unlike the previous two winners (Greg Raymer and Chris Moneymaker), Hachem was not an Internet qualifier, instead paying the full buy-in. However, like Raymer and Moneymaker, Joe Hachem is now a representative of PokerStars.

Her initial decision to play poker professionally estranged her from her father. After years of little to no contact, they have reconciled their differences.

After Hachem won the 2005 Main Event, WSOP commentator Norman Chad declared, "Hachem turned 7-3 off suit into $7.5 million. Pass the sugar!" Hachem himself first used what would become his catch phrase after flopping a flush against Andrew Black's three queens, and winning a large pot.

At the 2006 World Series of Poker, Joe Hachem finished second in the $2,500 short-handed no limit hold 'em event when his A? Q? was outdrawn by Russ "Dutch" Boyd's A? 5? on a board of A? K? 9? J? 5? on the final hand.

Joe Hachem later finished fourth in the $2,500 pot limit hold'em tournament; he was once again eliminated after taking a bad beat on the river, this time from eventual winner John Gale.Joe Hachem also finished in the money (238th place) of the 2006 WSOP Main Event, after his pocket Aces were outdrawn by Andrew Schreibman's pocket Jacks. (Schreibman eliminated another player along with Hachem) Hachem took home $42,882, and in defense of his title outlasted 97.2% of the largest field in poker history.
