May 22, 2008
In case you come from east and want to be as famous as the 'Orient Express' Johnny Chan in the poker circuits, then you really need to hone up your skills in the game of poker. Johnny Chan was born in Guangzhou in the year 1957, and then his family moved to Hong Kong in the year 1962. Soon after that his family shifted to Phoenix Arizona, and then they finally moved to Houston Texas in the year 1973.

Johnny was quick to adapt to the American culture and by the age of sixteen, after that there was no looking back. He started playing poker professionally with the aim to become the best in the field and he achieved his dreams as well.

Johnny Chan was the first Asian who played against the Poker players of the western world and proved his mettle. Johnny Chan won the World Series of Poker Main Event in two consecutive years of 1987 and 1988. He missed the golden opportunity of scoring a hat trick. But till now he has won ten World Series of Poker titles, the last one was when he defeated Phil Laak in the year 2005.

Although he is very engrossed in playing Poker in both national and international events, but still he has managed to maintain his family business and he owns a fast food franchise of his own in the Stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas.

He has also written a number of articles on poker for various magazines; Johnny Cash also consults for various casinos and game makers.

Now let us delve deeper into the life of Joseph Hachem, who was born in Lebanon in the year of 1966 on the third day of November. He was only six years old when his family moved from Lebanon to Australia. Till the year 2002 Hachem was not a poker player, but he had a genuine interest for the game and pursued it with much enthusiasm.

Currently he resides in West Preston which is in the Suburbs of the city of Melbourne. This famed player holds various records in the field of poker. In the year of 2005 when he was participating in the World Series of Poker he started a marathon session of beating different poker players at the same table.

The crowd watched with bated breath as he finished off the hopes of no less than 5,619 poker players, this marathon one sided game continued for fourteen long and exhausting hours. He went back home richer by an amount of ten thousand dollars by the end of the tournament.

Joseph Hachem has earned more than $10,400,000 in live poker tournaments by the year 2007; he holds the second rank when it comes to making the maximum money out of poker within a very short time. He is also the proud owner of the World Poker Tour Title that was given to him on December 2007.

Joseph Hachem is the money spinning wizard who has shown the world that if you have the proper skill, then becoming a professional poker player is a very lucrative career prospect.
