Dempsey Showing Signs of Life

James Dempsey

Sam Farha had opened a 15-to-1 chip lead over James Dempsey, but a series of pots have brought Dempsey back from the brink to only a 3-to-1 deficit. Most recently, he called after Farha raised the button and then check-called another bet on a flop of {j-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {2-Clubs}. Both players checked the {3-Spades} turn. Dempsey then took the initiative to bet the {8-Clubs} river. Farha called but couldn't beat {4-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {9-Clubs}, a six-high straight and a low.

Dempsey now has about 1.65 million. Farha has roughly 4.8 million.
