While away a weekend with Joe Hachem
For poker players looking for a way to improve their game and perhaps get a taste of that poker pro lifestyle, there is now a weekend they can live the poker dream with world champion player Joseph Hachem.
The 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event Winner is offering up "A Weekend with Joe Hachem" in Las Vegas in December that will include personal poker lessons, tournament play and even some nightclubbing.
"I'm very excited to offer poker players an immersive weekend of poker where I can give individual attention to each player's game," Hachem said.
The exclusive weekend will take place Dec. 7-9 and is limited to only 18 players in order to ensure a personalized experience and one-on-one poker training.
"The fact that the weekend is limited to 18 players will guarantee that I can work with each and every player and improve their game dramatically," Hachem said.
Hachem has the skills to back up his teaching as well. The 2005 WSOP win was just the beginning of his rocketing into stardom in the poker world.
Since then he's amassed several more large cashes around the world and came as close as a second-place finish to winning another WSOP bracelet.
He was defeated in heads-up with Russ "Dutch" Boyd to come in second in the $2,500 Short-Handed No-Limit Hold'em event in 2006. Boyd got his first bracelet win and Hachem gained even more determination to find a win in another big event.
That's the level of poker talent he will be bringing to his weekend for 18 poker players as they have a chance to sit down in seminars and workshops with Hachem.
Seminar topics will range from the technical aspects of pot odds and implied odds to the more strategic lessons including bluffing, reading opponents, tournament strategy, cash-game strategy and online poker concepts.
Attendees will also divide into two groups for a workshop at the poker tables where Hachem will assess each player's game. He'll identify individual weaknesses and help correct them.
The weekend won't be all work for the attendees, though. It'll start off with a bit of fun as participants are greeted at the airport by a limo and taken to the Wynn Hotel and casino where they'll get settled in, be treated to a private dinner and then also head to the Tryst Nightclub where they'll have a private table.
Then, after two intensive days of poker learning, on Sunday evening they'll put what they learned into practice in a private poker tournament.
"If you're a serious poker player looking to improve your game, I invite you to join us for 'A Weekend with Joe Hachem'," said the poker pro. "Not only will you leave a better player, but you will have a great time and live the life of a high stakes poker player."
The two day poker adventure will cost $9,900. For more information or to get signed up, send an e-mail to email@example.com.
