Joe Hachem makes WSOPC Final Table

After three days of play, Team PokerStars' Joe Hachem (aka the 2005 World Series of Poker Champion) has advanced to the final table of the World Series of Poker Circuit event at Ballys/Paris in Las Vegas.

As you likely noted during coverage of the WSOP main event, Hachem is among the most patient of players and when his money goes in you can count on seeing a hand. His opponent's found that out over the last few days, especially on the final hand of Day 3, in which Hachem knocked out Max Pescatori and Minh Ly at the same time. Hachem held KK to short-stacked Max's A4o and Minh's JJ. Word has it Lee Watkinson held pocket queens on the hand and then laid them down after seeing all the action.

Hachem's stack had been hovering around the average since Day 1, but now he's going to the final table with the chip lead.

Play will resume at 2pm Vegas time on Tuesday.

Well done, Joe.
