Dress Down Farha

Yardley • Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Sam Farha has been sitting quietly all day in contrast to his flashy loud mouthed image that is usually portrayed on TV. Dressed casually in sportswear with earphones plugged in and no sign of his trademark unlit cigarette dangling from his lips he strikes an unassuming figure today.

Farha joined four limper to see a flop of {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{8-Spades} and it was checked around. The turn brought the {6-Diamonds} and seat one bet 2,000. Farha was the only caller. The river was the {4-Clubs} and after a pause the seat one bet another 8,000.

Farha flashed a familiar wolfish grin and moved all in for about 8,000 and was called. Seat one showed {7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a straight and Farha matched him with {7-Spades}{6-Clubs}. “Nice hand Sir.” seat one said as the dealer chopped it up.

On the next hand there was an all-in from early position and Farha put his stack forward too from the cut-off. Farha had {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and was facing the {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

The board ran out {k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Farha had a double up.
