Hachem wins WPT Doyle Brunson championship event
"I'm more excited than I was when I won the World Series," a jubilant Hachem told PokerListings.com after taking down runner-up Jim Hanna in heads-up play at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Though he started out the final day fourth in the chip standings, Hachem played conservatively with a top-three spot in mind.
Though at one point it looked as though Hachem would meet Negreanu - the final table's initial chip leader - in heads-up play, Kid Poker suffered some big losses to the cards of Hanna and busted out in third.
Hanna was big stack going into heads-up play with $9,570,000 to Hachem's $7,935,000. But Hachem gobbled up $3 million of Hanna's chips after the former football pro folded rather than go all-in against the Aussie.
The hand gave Hachem control of the game, which was said and done when both men went all-in - Hanna with a Q-J and Hachem with an A-6. The flop produced a pair of aces for Hachem and a second-place $1,099,430 prize for Hanna.
