About Joe Hachem's 2006 WSOP run...

Ya know, I have been watching the WSOPs televised coverage on ESPN lately, and one think that strikes me is how well Joe Hachem played! Coming back as the defending Main Event Texas Holdem Poker champion has to be a very difficult thing, especially with the numbers that the events are pulling.

Joe made two or three final tables in WSOP events, and the ONLY reason that he does not have another bracelet is because he took some TERRIBLLY bad beats. He outplayed Dutch Boyd, and got beat. Then he played well but got beat by a questionable call from John Gale in the Pot Limit event.... a couple cards differently, and he could have had another bracelet or two!

All in all, he made a terrific defense of his title, IMHO!
