Hasan Habib Cleans Up at the Poker Tables

Posted on 08 July 2011 by PakBee - Total hits: 42

Hasan Habib is one of the more recognizable names on the professional poker circuit, and the most successful Pakistani American in the world of poker, with more than $5 million in lifetime earning from poker tournaments. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has been especially kind to him, with cashes in 18 different events and about $1.5 million in winnings, including numerous final table finishes in different events.

Habib came to the US at the age of 18, and had been a top junior tennis player in Pakistan before coming to the US to attend college at the University of Redlands in California. A former owner of a chain of video stores, he started playing poker in 1985 and got his first taste of poker tournament success in the 1990s, with numerous cashes in tournaments held in California at the Crystal Park Casino, Commerce Casino, and the Bike.

His first six figure payday was in 2000 at the WSOP Main Event, where he finished fourth for $326,000. He’d then go through a dry spell (not uncommon for poker pros who play a lot of live events) until another huge breakthrough in 2004, when he finished runner-up in the $25,000 World Poker Tour (WPT) Championship at the Bellagio, earning a huge payday of $1,372,223. The WPT Championship would continue to be kind to him the follow year, as he’d finish 3rd in 2005 for another monster payday of $896,375.

Unlike some players who solely play poker online, Habib has continued to make his money by playing tournaments and live cash games. Habib also comes from an older generation of players that got their start playing live poker in casinos before the poker boom of the 2000s occurred, with many of those players more comfortable playing the live game that they’re familiar with, instead of learning to adjust to the faster-paced nature of online play.

Usama Bi Laden Killed, says President Obama

Usama Bi Laden Killed, says President Obama

Posted on 02 May 2011 by PakBee - Total hits: 2,716

WASHINTON: Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed on Sunday in a firefight with U.S. forces in Pakistan and his body was recovered, President Barack Obama announced on Sunday.

“Justice has been done,” Obama said in a dramatic, late-night White House speech announcing the death of the elusive mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the New York and Washington.

Obama said U.S. forces led the operation that killed bin Laden. No Americans were killed in the operation and they took care to avoid civilian casualties, he said. “The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda and a terrorist who is responsible for the murder of thousands of men, women and children,” Obama said. It is a major accomplishment for Obama and his national security team, after many Americans had given up hope of ever finding bin Laden.

A crowd gathered outside the White House to celebrate, chanting, “USA, USA.” Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, had repeatedly vowed to bring bin Laden to justice “dead or alive” for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington that killed nearly3,000 people, but never did before leaving office in early 2009.

U.S. officials said that after searching in vain for the al Qaeda leader since he disappeared in Afghanistan in late 2001, the Saudi-born extremist was killed in the Pakistani town of Abbotabad and his body recovered. Having the body may help convince any doubters that bin Laden is really dead.

He had been the subject of a search since he eluded U.S. soldiers and Afghan militia forces in a large-scale assault on the Tora Bora Mountains of Afghanistan in 2001. The trail quickly went cold after he disappeared and many intelligence officials believed he had been hiding in Pakistan.

While in hiding, bin Laden had taunted the West and advocated his militant Islamist views in videotapes spirited from his hideaway. Besides Sept. 11, Washington has also linked bin Laden to a string of attacks — including the 1998 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania and the 2000 bombing of the warship USS Cole in Yemen.

Pakistan Court Releases Raymond Davis

Pakistan Court Releases Raymond Davis

Posted on 16 March 2011 by PakBee - Total hits: 1,802

ISLAMABAD: An Additional Sessions judge Wednesday set free CIA contractor Raymond Davis, who killed two Pakistanis on a busy road in Lahore, after payment of blood money (Diyat) in accordance with Sharia law of Pakistan, sources said.

Talking to Geo News, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the court released Raymond Davis after the family members of the murdered men appeared in the court and pardoned the US National after an agreement was reached between the two sides. “He has been released from jail and now it is up to him to leave the country whenever he wants,” the Minister added.

The killings by Raymond Davis in Lahore in January strained relations between Pakistan and US, who repeatedly insisted Davis was an embassy employee and enjoyed diplomatic immunity, particularly after it emerged he was working for the CIA.

A spokesman for the US embassy in Islamabad said he could not immediately confirm the report. Lawyers for the families of the two men shot dead in a busy Lahore street on January 27 said they had been held for four hours at the jail court where Davis was being tried on Wednesday, but had not been allowed to witness proceedings.

Blood money, or ‘Diyat’ is a provision under Islamic sharia law in which compensation can be paid to relatives of those killed to secure a pardon, and is commonly used to resolve such cases in Pakistan.

The Davis case had sparked protests in Pakistan, with religious groups angrily denouncing the American who claimed he acted in self-defence to fend off an armed robbery when he shot dead the two men.

US authorities insisted Davis was protected by full diplomatic immunity, but the Pakistan government refused to back that claim and a decision on his status was on Monday deferred by the Lahore high court for criminal judges to decide.

Revelations that Davis was a CIA contractor heaped pressure on Pakistan’s embattled government and further ramped up burning public mistrust of Washington, damaging fragile relations between the two wary allies.

A third Pakistani was struck down and killed by a US diplomatic vehicle that came to Davis’ assistance in the January incident. US officials denied Pakistan access to the vehicle, and the occupants are widely believed to have left the country.

Police have said they recovered a Glock pistol, four loaded magazines, a GPS navigation system and a small telescope from Davis’ car after the January 27 shooting. The United States postponed a round of high-level talks with Afghanistan and Pakistan following failed attempts to free Davis, and US lawmakers threatened to cut payments to Pakistan unless he is released.

Pakistan Seeks Drone Technology

Posted on 16 October 2010 by PakBee - Total hits: 2,052

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani and Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani called on President Asif Ali Zardari at Aiwan-e-Sadr on Saturday and deliberated on matters relating to the forthcoming Pak-US strategic dialogue.

Briefing the media, Spokesperson to the President Farhatullah Babar said that the meeting was held to deliberate upon the forthcoming Pak-US strategic dialogue that is scheduled to be held in Washington soon.

Babar said the democratic government wanted to pursue multi-faceted comprehensive cooperation between the two countries while at the same time address issues like access to drone technology, reimbursement of coalition support fund arrears and RoZ legislation.

He said that the challenges being faced by the two countries vis-à-vis the security situation and promotion of intelligence sharing mechanism and the capacity enhancement of the security forces would also come under discussion during the strategic dialogue.

The president has all along maintained that Pakistan had suffered a colossal loss, both in human and material losses due to the ongoing fight against militancy and the recent devastating floods which further added to the economic woes.

The president said the situation calls for the help of the international community especially the US to support Pakistan and advocate its case for having greater access to its products in the international markets.

The president said that he had been urging US visitors to use their influence in expediting ROZs legislation and for helping Pakistan in creating new vistas of opportunities for the flood-affected people.

He expressed hope that discussions during the forthcoming dialogue would be productive and help carry forward the progress made so far in the mutually agreed areas of cooperation in which Pakistan needs more help from the United States.

It may be recalled that various areas of mutual cooperation that included: security, defence, socio-economic projects, enhancement of power generation capacity and infrastructure were thoroughly deliberated during the sectoral meetings in the last round of the dialogue.

Defence Minister Ch. Ahmed Mukhtar and Finance Minister Dr.Abdul Hafeez Sheikh were also present during the meeting besides Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir and Finance Secretary Salman Siddique.
