Joe Hachem Climbs To Number Two In The Australian Global Poker Index

Posted at 13:00 2012-10-16 by Matthew Pitt

The former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Hachem has climbed to number two in the Australian rankings, compiled by the "+]Global Poker Index. Hachem is now less than 200 points behind the current leader Jonathan Karamilikis.

The 2005 WSOP Main Event champion climbed from sixth place to second thanks to a net gain of around 180 points. Hachem’s recent sixth place finish in the €5,000 Pot Limit Omaha event at the World Series of Poker Europe in Cannes will have played a major role in his climb up the current standings.

Sliding in the opposite direction is Daniel Neilson, who finds some of his results from 2009 and 2010 decay and become worth less points. With ANZPT Melbourne in full swing and the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific and Aussie Millions not being a million miles away PokerNetwork would bet on Neilson climbing back towards the top of the leaderboard sooner rather than later.

The rest of the top 10 remains almost the same, with just a couple of the players’ points totals differing from the last update we provided. The current top 10 looks like this:
