Dempsey Sets Up Again


James Dempsey has scooped Sammy Farha out of another pot by flopping a set and finishing with a full house. Dempsey waited for the turn to raise Farha, then got one more bet in after he filled on the river. Dempsey's {2-Spades} {2-Clubs} {6-Clubs} and a fourth card was way good on a board of {10-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {q-Diamonds} {10-Spades} {7-Spades}.

Sam Farha and James Dempsey are just trading pots back and forth now. Dempsey check-called all the way down on a flop of {a-Diamonds} {q-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {q-Spades}. At showdown he tabled a king and a queen in his hand for three queens. That was the winner.

Farha Regains the Lead
