Joe Hachem makes WPT final table

After clawing and gnashing his way through a 15-hour day of tournament poker, Team PokerStars' 2005 World Series of Poker champion, Joe Hachem, has made it down to the final six of the 2006 Five Diamond World Poker Classic championship event.

Hachem, seen above during play on Monday, played some tough poker and made some even tougher laydowns on his way to the televised final table. On Tuesday, after some much needed rest, Hachem will face off against some formidable foes, including Daniel Negreanu.

Hachem's chip stack puts him right in the middle of the remaining players and gives him a real shot at taking down the $2.1 million first prize.

Good luck, Joe!
