A 417-player field was narrowed down to 8 after 4 days of poker at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California. These 8 players played the final table last night and battled for some serious cash! After many hours of poker, Joe Hachem and Victor Ramadin were the last two men standing.

It was a very interesting heads-up match where both players played extremely well. However, after some time of play, Ramadin took the lead with 8.5m against Hachem's 3.7m chips. Then it didn't take long before Hachem was eliminated - after losing an all-in (pre-flop) with AK vs AJ. Ramdin flopped 2 pairs and the turn and river card was to no help to the 2005 WSOP Main Event Champ.

A big congrultations to the Victor Ramadin, The Big Event Main Event Champion ($500,000).

Final Table results
1st Victor Ramdin $500,000
2nd Joe Hachem $300,000
3rd Jeremy Ausmas $190,000
4th Taylor von Kriegenbergh $140,000
5th Bryan Leskowitz $100,000

Even being most known among poker hall of fame, Joe Hachem lost but he should be recognized by the extremely good work at this tourney. He came from a delicate position and ended up in second, against all expectations. Perhaps viewers and analists could expect more from him at the heads-up, but i think he did fine in the same. Even this way, i can't forget, the merit is for Victor Ramadin, who beat the star in the final.

ahhh, too bad Joe wasn´t able to ship it this time. He is a pretty symatic poker player after all. Would be nice to see him winning again

To bad luck wasn't with Joe and he lost better hand.
But in every tournament you need to get somehow lucky to win.

I feel for Hachem it seems like he's alway's taking bad beats! He's a good player one of my favorite pro's. At least my bad beats don't cost me 200K. It makes me feel better about still grinding it out in the lower stakes!
