Farha on Fire


Nobody can stop Sam Farha right now. He just shipped two massive pots back-to-back. First, a three-way pot contested among Farha, Chow and Merksick saw four bets go in on a flop of {4-Clubs} {q-Diamonds} {5-Spades}. Farha checked, Chow bet, Merksick raised and Farha re-raised. Chow called the re-raise before Merksick put in the fourth bet. Everyone called to the {5-Diamonds} turn. Farha bet and both players called. On the river {10-Diamonds}, Farha bet again. Only Chow called, giving Farha the perfect opportunity to show quads -- {5-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {j-Hearts} {k-Clubs}. He dragged a pot of 850,000.

The very next hand, Farha tagged James Dempsey for two bets on the turn and one on the river of a {5-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} {q-Clubs} {5-Spades} {9-Clubs} board. "Quads again?" Dempsey asked. Not this time. Farha showed {a-Spades} {5-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {j-Hearts} for trip fives. They were good enough.

Farha has his chips stacked in several massive towers, with dirty stacks mixed in, making it difficult to get an accurate count. He could have anywhere between 2.3 and 2.7 million.
