By staff
A 39-year-old former chiropractor, Joseph Hachem, from Australia is $7.5m richer after emerging from a field of 5,600 players to win the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

Joseph Hachem defeated a mortgage banker, Steve Dannenmann of Maryland, in a 14-hour final round of the week-long tournament at Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel.

Afterwards Hachem said, “How could it not change my life? It changes everything. I can look after my family, my mum, my kids.”

Mr Dannenmann took $4.25m. The only known player in the final, Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, was the first of the nine finalists to be eliminated, winning $1m for his troubles.
