Event #25: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship

Dempsey Grinding


James Dempsey has been involved in some good-natured back and forth with Sam Farha. The two played a raised, heads-up flop of {6-Diamonds} {k-Spades} {6-Clubs}. Farha was out of position and check-called a bet from Dempsey. On the {a-Clubs} turn, Farha checked again and Dempsey bet again.

"Are you bluffing?" Farha asked.

Dempsey shrugged. "I can't say."

"Yes you are," said Farha. "You already did." He called, then check-called again on the {5-Hearts} river. Dempsey showed {a-Hearts} {k-Clubs} {j-Clubs} {2-} for two pair, aces and kings. Farha didn't have a low, so Dempsey scooped.

A few hands later Dempsey scooped another pot against Tony Merksck when he induced Merksick to fold on the river of a {k-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} board.
