Adelaide was alive last night to watch Australia take on Italy in the World Cup. Pubs and clubs were full, 20 000 people went to Adelaide Oval and Sky City Adelaide was packed. It was an exciting match, but goalless till the 93rd minute, when the ref made the worst "trip" call ever with 10 seconds to go and gave Italy a penalty kick right in front of goal, which they made to secure a 1-0 victory over the Aussies.

So as we farewell the Socceroos' World Cup campaign we can hail in the biggest poker event in the world, The World Series of Poker, which started yesterday. Last year Melbourne resident Joe Hachem shocked the world by becoming the first ever Australian to win the main event. Hachem outlasted a field of over 5600, and then topped the final table to the sounds of Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi to take home the record breaking first prize of AU$10 million (US$7.5 mill).

One of the best thing about Australians is our willingness and enthusiasm to support our fellow country men and women in anyting they, be it Aussie rules and Cricket, or the less known Soccer and Poker. On that note, i'd like to say thankyou to the Socceroos in providing us with much joy during ALL the matches they played, and goodluck to Joe Hachem and all other Aussies going off to tackle the World Series of Poker.
