HEADLINE: Latest 2006 WSOP Results - Hachem Doing Well Again 07-02-06

Joseph Hachem, who won the 2005 World Series Of Poker main event, is busy proving that result was no fluke. At the 2006 WSOP he has just made the final table of Event #5, the $2,500 NL Hold'em Short-Handed 6/Table where he will take on "Dutch" Boyd after Daniel Negreanu busted out in 8th spot...

Play Tournament Qualifiers

This WSOP tournament looked like it would culminate in a dream final table for ESPN. Because this is a short-handed tournament the final table would start with only six players. Televised poker doesn't get any better than Negreanu, Hachem, and Boyd, whose TV confession about mental illness last year kept him in the spotlight when his poker could not.

But it was not to be as Negreanu's pocket Aces were cracked by Boyd's pocket sevens when the latter flopped a set and slow-played them brilliantly, consigning Negreanu to an 8th place finish, agonizingly close to making the final table. It was Daniel's first cash in the World Series this year, and although the $38,852 is chump change to Negreanu the result must have been encouraging.

As we have argued previously, Hachem is no Moneymaker (can he even afford the buy-ins for these events anymore?) He is a genuine poker talent, more like Greg Raymer, and it would be a wonderful achievement if he were to win a second bracelet at the 2006 World Series Of Poker.

He faces an uphill task here. Boyd, who was the brash "leader" of The Crew - a group of young guns who stormed the poker world in 2004 - has a substantial chip lead, which he has held since eliminating Negreanu. If anyone can beat him from this position it would be Hachem, who proved how adept he is at short-stack tournament poker play at last year's Main Event.

You can still qualify for this incredible series of poker tournaments by winning your seat online. Join the Insider for the $10,000 main event by snagging a seat today at Wild Jack Poker!
