Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi

Only several hands into heads up, the following hand ended it all. Finally, mercifully at 6:45 am, it came to an end. On a flop of 4 5 6, Joe Hachem bet out 750,000, and was raised by Steve to 3 million. Joe went all in, and Steve called. Joesph showed 3 7 for a flopped straight, and Steve Dannenmann showed A 3 for top pair, and an open ended straight draw.

Steve could only draw to a tie, but the board blanked out, and we have a new World Champion. Get used to the name Joseph Hachem....You'll be hearing it a lot.
