Joseph Hachem
Name: Joseph Hachem
Current Residence: Melbourne, Australia
Birth Date: March 11, 1966
Birth Place: -, Lebanon
Joseph Hachem seemed coming from nowhere as he survived turn after turn of his very first World Series of Poker Main Event, going on to profit the $7.5 million grand prize in 2005. He became a poker celebrity, however his fame was actually more progressive than it seems.
Born in Lebanon on March 11, 1966, a young Hachem travel with his family to Melbourne, Australia, in 1972, where he lived and get married and raised his own family. Joe knows sweetheart future wife, Jeanie, through family friends when he was 15 and she was 12.
The poker pro begins playing the Manila diversion of poker for entertainment during his teenage years, and it he switched to Texas Hold’em Poker by mid-1990s after watching the movie Rounders, when he decided to try his chance playing live at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.
Around the year 2000, and after a very rare blood vessel disorder in his hands which obliged him to leave his main profession as chiropractic business after for 13 years, Joe starts working as a mortgage broker and giving more time to poker as a “semi-professional,” playing permanent live competitions in Melbourne and online at PokerStars.com.
Poker competitions became his main business in 2005 when the Aussie headed to Las Vegas with his brother, cousin, and $10,000 of his private money on a mission to benefit the “Big One.” First by entering WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP) Event 37, Hachem tested the waters in Vegas, a $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em with re-buys game held on July 4, where he deposited 10th and earned $25,850.
His profit turned out to be very little in comparison to the millions he won less than two weeks later on July 15 at the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship final table, which he attained after striking the record-breaking 5,600-plus gaming field. Hachem guaranteed his championship with a 7-3 off-suit, one of the worst beginning hands in poker. He was the first Australian to profit the event and one of only four non-Americans to have won.
Now a millionaire and a sponsored PokerStars.com performer, the loyal family man to whom “Family is most important than everything” has the resources to travel to international events with his wife and four children in pursuit of the best world poker  offer.
That pursuit has also took him to more cashes in the 2006 WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP), as he made it to two final tables and cashed in events including the Main Event. 2006 also brought Joe a World Poker Tour title at the 2006 Doyle Brunson North American Poker Championship.
With that benefit, he joined the stage of Doyle Brunson, Juan Carlos Mortenson and Scotty Nguyen as the only performer to win a WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP) Main Event and a WPT championship title.
Poker doesn’t diverge Hachem’s family life. Poker provides him newfound wealth and gave him the time to enjoy his other favorite activities: playing golf, eating a delicious meal in a class restaurant and smoking a fine quality cigar in a fine bar.
Trivia

Introduced the phrase “Pass the sugah!” to the poker gaming masses at the 2005 WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP) Championship final table
Used to be a chiropractor
WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP) 2005 Main tournament Champion
