Hachem Tops the 2005 Tournament Winnings Leader Board

January 6, 2006 (written by Haunted Poker)


With the Main Event at this year’s WSOP attracting 5,619 players it was sure to make some millionaires. Actually, the entire final table was guaranteed at least $1 million! We watched as Mike Matusow suffered that horrible beat to take 9th at the final table. He returned to win the WSOP Tournament of Champions and take home another $1 million and earn 10th place in the overall rankings for the year.

The native Australian Joseph Hachem took first in 2005 by virtue of his $7.5 million win at the WSOP Main Event. Second place, won by Steven Dannenmann, earned over $4.2 million and locked up the same place in the overall standings.

Other notable accomplishments on the list include back-to-back Monte Carlo Millions tournament winner Phil Ivey taking 3rd place for the year. Tuan Lee took 4th place from winning the World Poker Tour’s Five-Star World Poker Classic event in April despite an otherwise miserable year. Let’s take a look at the top 10 tournament money winners of 2005:

1. Joseph Hachem: $7.61 million
2. Steve Dannenmann: $4.35 million
3. Phil Ivey: $3.33 million
4. Tuan Lee: $2.85 million
5. John “Tex Barch”: $2.52 million
6. Michael Mizrachi: $2.47 million
7. Michael Gracz: $2.29 million
