Another Double-Up for Dempsey

[user75032]

Things are getting interesting now. James Dempsey raised pre-flop and Sam Farha called. He said, "This could be it," before checking the {5-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {j-Diamonds} flop. Dempsey bet, Farha raised, and Dempsey re-raised. Farha made the call.

The turn was the {6-Spades}. Farha checked and called one bet.

On the river {5-Diamonds}, Farha may have inadvertently made a bet. The TD told him, "That's going to have to be a bet Sam." Dempsey then raised all in to 330,000 total and Farha called. Dempsey showed {7-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {2-Diamonds}, a full house and a bad low. Farha had no low and mucked, allowing Dempsey to claim the whole pot.

Scoop for Dempsey

[user75032]

James Dempsey certainly isn't going gently into that good night. It probably helps that he has a rowdy rail egging him on. Dempsey and Sam Farha both checked a flop of {a-Spades} {4-Hearts} {k-Clubs}. Farha bet the {3-Spades} turn and the {q-Diamonds} river, with Dempsey calling both bets. Dempsey's 6-low and pair of 4s was enough to scoop the pot.

Dempsey All In Again... and Doubles Again

[user75032]

Sam Farha can't quite finish off James Dempsey. The two took a raised flop of {k-Diamonds} {k-Spades} {6-Diamonds}, with Farha the player in position. He bet after Dempsey checked, then called a check-raise. The rest of the chips were in on the turn {8-Clubs}. Farha showed down {a-Spades} {q-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {4-Diamonds}. He was looking for a low card against Dempsey's three kings, {k-Clubs} {q-Spades} {5-Spades} {3-Hearts}. The river was paint, {j-Spades}, to give Dempsey another double up. He's back up to 1.0 million.

Two Back for Farha

[user75032]

Sam Farha is trying to apply the pressure again. In a limped pot, Farha bet the {k-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {3-Hearts} flop, the {j-Clubs} turn and the {a-Diamonds} river. James Dempsey called the first two bets, but tank-folded to the river bet.

Dempsey is sliding dangerously downwards.

One Back for Farha

[user75032]

Sam Farha has to start all over with trying to eliminate James Dempsey. He took a step in that direction by betting the turn of a {q-Clubs} {a-Spades} {j-Hearts} {a-Diamonds} board. James Dempsey called. Both players checked the {6-Hearts} river, with Farha tabling {a-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} {4-Diamonds}, trip aces, to take down the pot.
