Hasan Habib (born 19 April 1962 in Karachi, Pakistan) is an American professional poker player.

During his early years in Pakistan, Habib was the Pakistan 14-and-under National Tennis Champion.

Habib went to America at the age of 18 to study business at the University of Redlands. He also once owned a nationwide chain of video stores.

He began playing poker in 1985 as a cash game specialist, and started playing the tournament circuit in 1998.

In 2004 he finished second to Martin "The Knife" De Knijff" in the World Poker Tour (WPT) $25,000 Championship, receiving a $1,372,223 prize. Later in the year he finished on the television bubble at the WPT $15,000 Five-Diamond World Poker Classic, gaining a further $108,906.

The following year he made the final table of the $25,000 WPT Championship again. He finished in third place ($896,375), but also had a stake on eventual winner Tuan Le. Observers have commented that this may have affected the interaction between them on the final table, however Habib has made it clear he was still playing to win, citing that the endorsements would have made it more financially viable.

As of 2006, he has cashed seven times in the World Series of Poker (WSOP), including a 2nd place finish in $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Split event in 2000, and a 4th place finish in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event in the same year, for which he took home $326,000. In September 2005, he won the opening No Limit Hold'em event of PokerStars' fourth annual World Championship of Online Poker, taking home $306,000 and the prestigious gold bracelet.

He eventually won a WSOP Bracelet for the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Split event ($93,060) in 2004.

As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings to date exceed $4,200,000.

Habib currently resides in Downey, California.
