Joe Hachem

Day 1e of Event #67: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event Championship at the 2021 World Series of Poker is in the books with the fifth of six opening flights to the WSOP's flagship event attracting 797 players to Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino to take their shot with 592 moving on to Day 2cef.

Former champions Scott Blumstein and Joe Hachem qualified for Day 2 after spending the evening on the featured tables that were live-streamed on PokerGO.

Hachem, the 2005 Main Event champion, was joined by mixed game specialists Nathan Gamble and Dylan Linde at a lively featured table with some of the most knowledgeable players in the game. Gamble has three cashes at the 2021 WSOP and has won two career WSOP titles. Linde is looking for his second bracelet after breaking through in this year's Mixed Omaha event. All three players will continue on to Day 2 and Hachem is near the top part of the leaderboard with 186,100 chips.
