Another italian job at WSOP! I went to look to see if there was ever any portuguese winning an event but i couldn’t find any info about this. I believe there must be some Portuguese descent who has won or at least achieved a high rating a tone event, taking in consideration the huge number of native portuguese immigrants in the USA. By the way (lol) do yuo knew that the USA flag that is in the moon was embroidered by a portuguese woman? You are always learning new and interesting things with me!

Seems like the foreigners are on a roll with the bracelet winning!!

Nice take downs everywhere by non-US players.

FAKIRY...maybe you could be the one to lead the way my friend. My commiserations for your loss on the football pitch tonight,... I really thought you would do it...oh well, more time for poker now the footy has nearly ended and you can concentrate on winning WSOP for Portugal.

Since the Italian won the bracelot is this a sign that italy will win the Futball or soccer title? just a thought that went through my mind. I wish I knew more about your style or futball and the players.

Thanks damosk, but maybe it is better this way. The suffering is a lot worst when it is in the end, and I still suffer for the loss against Greece in the final at Euro2004 here in Portugal. But, just like you said, it’s better to leave this subject for now and concentrate on winning some money for ourselves at the poker tables, that’s what matters the most. GL for you mate, let’s see if we can imitate this Italian at our levels.
