Bio: When “Salty” Joe Hachem’s hand condition turned him away from a career as a chiropractor, it proved to be a blessing in disguise. The Aussie started playing poker tournaments at the Crown Casino in Melbourne and he quickly found out he had a natural talent for the game. His life would change forever at the 2005 WSOP. He nearly final tabled a $1K bracelet event finishing in 10th for $25k. He took those profits and parlayed them into a magical run in the Main Event where he would capture the title and $7.5 million. Hachem followed-up his WSOP bracelet with a WPT victory in 2006 for over $2 million.

His “Salty” nickname was coined by Wicked Chops Poker for his less than friendly reputation on the felt. He has a tendency to fly off the handle while playing.

Playing Style: Hachem is widely considered a loose-aggressive player willing to send his chips in the middle.
