Joe Hachem and Pokerstars have called it a day with the biggest online poker website in the world losing one of their main faces.
Hachem has been involved with Pokerstars for six years dating back to his win in the 2005 World Series of Poker Championship.
At the time he made headlines around the world by winning what was the biggest main event ever with 5619 entrants.
“It’s been a great run with PokerStars and I’m proud of my association with the people and the company,” Hachem said.
“It’s time for me to pursue other career opportunities and it will be fun to have some down time to spend with my family. I look forward to the future with much excitement and anticipation and will always have fond memories of my time at PokerStars.”
head of Corporate Communications for PokerStars, Eric Hollreiser, said they’re sad to see him go.
“Joe has been a terrific endorser for PokerStars over the year and, while we are sad to see him leave the Team, we are looking forward to continuing to watch him play,” he said.
“We thank him for all he’s done for our brand, and for poker, and we wish him all the best at the poker table and in life.”
Hachem is the latest loss to team Pokerstars with Tom McEvoy, Bill Chen and Dennis Phillips all being moved on.
That came on the heels of the somewhat bitter parting of Greg Raymer earlier in the year.
This though seems to be a far more respectful breakup with the move potentially offering positives to both parties.
