Australian poker star Joe Hachem has crashed out of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event on day one.
The 2005 champion was expected to perform well in Las Vegas but ultimately failed to make it to the second day of play.
According to the ESPN poker blog, Hachem was eliminated shortly before the dinner break on day 1A,
Hachem went all in on day one with J-9 against a heads-up opponent with 4-4.
The flop offers K-Q-K placing the odds slightly in Hachem's favour, but a turn 7 and river 6 gave his opponent two-pair and sent the Aussie ace tumbling out of the competition.
Meanwhile, cricket star-turned poker pro Shane Warne is safely through to day two.
After an up and down day one the spin king amassed more than 70,000 chips to make it through to the next round.
A record-breaking number of players have turned out for the Main Event this year, with the winner expected to take home around $8 million.
