Not much was moving, quiet as a tomb,
The chip racks were stacked on the side in a row,
Hoping some good luck would fill them with dough;
Telling their tales of all the bad beats,
The dealer looked at me and ask,
Do you plan to bet or will you pass?
Joseph Hachem is the 2006 WPT Doyle Brunson North America Poker Champion. Hachem defeated Jim Hanna in heads-up play even though he started the face to face session as an underdog trailing Hanna by $1.5 million in chips. The final table included another tough professional poker player in the form of Daniel Negreanu. Negreanu finished third after being unable to best Hachem's all-in call with pocket fours. On the positive side for Daniel, the $592,000 he collected makes him #1 the all time money winner list for the World Poker Tour circuit.

The Rio All Suite Resort in Las Vegas is best known in the poker world as the new "uptown" home of the World Series of Poker.

Fitzgeralds opened during downtown's pre- Fremont Experience era of prosperity. Back when Fremont Street was filled with bumper to bumper 'look-at-me cars' cruising along only a few short feet from slot machines players, separated by only an invisible air-curtain.

Downtown Vegas was jammed night and day with players, lines of taxis, long limos, exotic hot rods, throngs of pedestrians and crowds of cops.
Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip the TI, formerly Treasure Island, opened in the fall of 1993. Steve Wynn designed and built the TI adjacent to his Mirage Resort.

With a full size pirate sailing ship permanently docked in Buccaneer Bay, TI guests enjoyed free shows nightly when a British frigate sailed into the bay only to be hit by cannon fire and sink with all hands.
