It was recently announced that Tony Hachem has won the ANZPT Player of the Year award for the second straight year! Hachem’s success on the fledgling ANZPT poker tour is unparalleled; here is a quick rundown of his accomplishments on the tour for 2010:

  • 1st place 2010 ANZPT Main Event in Perth
  • 3rd place 2010 ANZPT Main Event in Adelaide
  • 2 final tables in 2010 ANZPT preliminary events

According to the HendonMob.com’s poker database, in 2009 Tony finished 18th or better in three of the eight ANZPT Main Events, and cashed in 5 events total, including two final tables. Overall, Hachem has won $326,247 in poker tournaments, with $256,406 of that coming from Australian based tournaments.

When asked on the PokerStars.com blog how he felt after winning the award Hachem had this to say: “It’s a great honor to win the ANZPT Player of the Year. I’m over the moon. There was a lot to play for here in Darwin and it was some of the toughest poker I’ve ever played, so I’m very proud. It doesn’t get much better than this. I’m in awe.”
