image for Berlusconi Loses Italy In Card Game To Susan Boyle

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is in hiding after losing big in a game of high stakes poker.

The flamboyant head of state lost out in what he called a "freak of nature" - after putting the deeds to Italy in the pot.

Gambling experts say the move was, "a rash decision" and "illogical" and completely out of character.

Earlier, Berlusconi had lost his entire media empire to Omar Sharif.

On the final hand of the night, with two pairs, he gambled the lot - including Sicily.

His opponent, Susan Boyle, shrieked with delight on discovering her straight flush had trumped the bald headed septa... septuag... septagenaria... old guy.

Berlusconi now hopes to buy back Italy after making what is being described by pals as "an offer too good to refuse."
