  1.  When we talk about gambling and some of the greatest gamblers of all time we should also talk about the best gambling game of all time and that is poker. When I have watched videos about the previous West this kind of as tombstone among other folks you will always see somebody gambling at a high stake poker table in a saloon such as the excellent Doc Holliday strolling away with twelve wins in the position. Poker has been so ingrained in the psyche of America that it will never get rid of its historical value and popularity amid us. Properly it truly is the year 2009 and poker is even now the world's most popular gambling sport and for great reason. Poker combines the mental potential to memorize hands along with the capability to know what your opponent is thinking. 1 need to virtually be a mathematician and a psychologist to grow to be a wonderful poker player and one particular cannot love poker without viewing the grand daddy of all poker tournaments and that is the World Series of poker.
  2. The Planet Series of poker has become the most well-known and televised poker occasion in the globe with folks coming in from all corners of the globe to signal-up to try and perform and win the main event and it does not come inexpensive to get in. Just by signing up to play you are out $ten,000 from of the start. A single of my favorite WSOP tournaments was the 2005 Planet Series of poker and I will clarify why. There had been several fantastic stars in that occasion this kind of as the excellent Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan and several other people but in 2005 the Planet Series of poker bracelet and $7.5 million came down to a dramatic finale in between two newcomers and comparatively unknown poker players Joe Hachem and Steve Dannenmann. Joe Hachem was practically unknown in the world of poker and was a chiropractic practitioner before he entered this occasion but simply because of undesirable luck due to a rare blood disorder, he determined to give up his chiropractic profession and focus on poker.
  3.  Steve Dannenmann was also fairly unknown until finally he signed up for the principal occasion. Steve originally only put up 50% of the signing charge and the rest of that was put up by his great friend Steve Ditzel, and when Steve came in second to Joe Hachem he also split 50% of its $4.5 million winning with Ditzel so they each came out of this as millionaires. It wasn't the truth that Joe Hachem won $seven.five million but it was how he won it, and it all began on the last hand in which Joe Hachem began off with a seven-three offsuit and flopped a straight on the river to completely shock Steve Dannenmann who was himself holding a pair of aces, and if I was a gambling man I would've explained 9/10 times Joe Hachem would've misplaced that hand but 2005 was the yr of destiny for Joe as he utilised his savvy along with a little help from the poker gods to create himself a ticket into poker immortality.
