Joe Hachem Is “Just Another Asshole With An Opinion”

Former champ revisits inflammatory Aussie Millions comments.

While having a quick sitdown to talk about the state of poker “down under”, Poker Asia Pacfic asks former World Series of Poker Champion Joe Hachem, once again, about the comments he made during the Aussie Millions about the state of poker ambassadorship.

ICYMI: Joe Hachem – 'Poker Is Dying’

Hachem admits he took in some feedback from the well-watched interview including having seen some posts on Two Plus Two and some engagement on the Twitters, but overall, he felt like his passion for poker overrides his need to keep things status quo. Plus…the kids seems to love what he said!

That said, Hachem doubles down on the fact he didn’t mean to disrespect fellow WSOP ME Champs Jerry Yang and Jamie Gold during his heartfelt “on-the-spot” interview with Bluff and that, in the end, it’s just his opinion.
