Farha Dodges a Bullet


Three players including Sammy Farha saw a flop of {4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. All three decided to check and the turn came {7-Hearts}. The player in early position fired out a bet of 1,600 only to be raised by the player in middle position to 3,600. Farha made the call and the early position bettor also called.

The river brought the {2-Hearts}, which turned out to be quite the action card. The early position player led out for 6,000 and the player in middle position tanked. After about two minutes, he announced that he was all in. Sammy Farha looked dumbfounded by the move as if he couldn't believe that he was about to fold his hand to this bet. Farha tossed his hand away and the early position player quickly called.

The player who announced all in turned up {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} for a flopped full house and the caller mucked his cards.

"I had three fours. I just laid down three fours there" Farha announced to the table, proud that he was able to dodge a big bullet while another player was sent to the rail.
