Joe Hachem

This 47 year old Australian professional poker player is one of the world’s top poker professionals. Born in Lebanon in 1972, when he was six years old his family moved to Melbourne Australia. He began playing poker in 1995 after a rare blood disorder affected his ability to continue in his 13 year profession as a chiropractor.

He played both online as well as in casinos, and despite his initial temperamental behaviour in 2000 Hachem started to play in regular tournaments at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, where he began to see the money come rolling in. After five years of playing the Melbourne circuit he set his sights on Las Vegas Nevada for the 2005 World Series of Poker.

It was this event which would solidify his name as one of the world’s best poker players. He won the 2005 WSOP and took home $7.5 million and was Australia’s first winner of the main event. Last year he was recorded to have a total tournament earnings of over $11 700 000 which put him in the top ten highest ranked tournament career earnings.

In 2006 he won the World Poker Tour, the famous Bellagio Casino’s Five Diamond Poker Classic where he earned another $2.2 million.

Hachem holds one WSOP bracelet from his main event win in 2005, but had finished in the money in 13 World Series events. He also is only one of five poker players who have won both the World Series of Poker main event as well as the World Poker Tour Championship.

Other than the US and of course Australia he has played and earned in tournaments and Championships from Denmark, Bahamas, Macau China to Canada and Cannes France.

Joe Hachem has proven that it’s never too late to learn new tricks, or even a new career.
