The Most Dramatic Wins (2)


It is no stretch to suggest that dramatic wins take place all over Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker (WSOP) each year. With the top players in their field sit down across from one another in what is annually the most lucrative event ever, fireworks are sure to follow. Between daggers being dealt on the river and all-in bluffs creating mental questions on final tables, dramatic wins are almost common place. That, though, doesn’t mean they still aren’t dramatic. Consider some of the most dramatic wins of the 2005 WSOP events.


By the very nature of the main event, it was the final hand at the 2005 main event that created a real buzz. It was down to Steve Dannenmann and Joseph Hachem. Pre-flop, Dannenmann was already up to $700,000 in against a Hachem call. It was 4-5-6 on the flop and Hachem checked off of that. Dannenmann went to another $700,000 prompting Hachem to re-raise all the way up to $1.7 Million. Dannenmann then called. On the turn came an ace which brought a $2 million bet from Hachem only to have that raised to $5 million. Finally, Hachem apparently had enough and went all in from there and Dannenmann called. Hachem was holding a seven of clubs and three of spades against Dannenmann’s ace and three. The river came up four making Joseph Hachem the champion of the WSOP main event and winner of the biggest prize check in the history of the game. He took home a whopping $7.5 million in prize money.


Another dramatic 2005 WSOP win was not dramatic because of the hand itself, but because of who won. The final table was Actress Jennifer Tilly versus Anh Le. Tilly already has a lead in chip count at a whopping 478,000 to 131,000. In what turned out to be the final hand, Tilly was holding Ace seven while Le had King Jack. Le went straight for all in with Tilly calling it right away. Tilly and Le watched as the flop, the turn, and finally the river came down: nothing to help either woman, so Tilly’s ace high hand turned out to be the winner. The actress and academy award nominee netted $158,335 for her victory in the women’s event after only playing the game seriously for a year. With a dramatic actress sitting atop the tournament, it really was a dramatic win.


The third exciting finish in the 2005 WSOP was in the $2,000 buy-in no limit game at the Rio. With the final down to Cyndy Violette and Erik Seidel, it was a memorable final hand. Things heated up with Violette re-raised to an all-in with 9’s in her hand. Seidel, holding two 8’s, called the all-in. Gasps could actually be heard through the crowd, though, when the flop was eight, five, and five. That gave Seidel a flopped full house. As Violette waited, that 9 card never came out of the deck.  It was certainly one of the most dramatic if not the most dramatic final hands at the entire 2005 WSOP. It is not every day you see someone, in just the flop, go from 7 to 1 favorite to 11 to 1 underdog.


Just as the event does every year, the 2005 World Series of Poker provided numerous dramatic moments. With each flip of the cards and each slide of the chips, there is the possibility for drama. Combine that with high stakes and lots of skill and you have a formula that delivers every year. So whether it is an actress showing the big-girls how it’s done, or a flopped full-house to take a tournament, there will undoubtedly be more exciting WSOP events down the road.
