Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Farha Comes Alive

Yardley • Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Sam Farha

Perhaps the subdued nature of Sam Farha earlier in the day was due to the hours he regularly keeps as he is now smiling and chatting with the table. Or perhaps it is also due to his growing chip stack.

A hand we witness certainly had him chuckling. He checked the flop of {3-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and then bet 4,500 on the turn card. His opponent folded and Farha flashed his neighbour his hole cards and the showed the table {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}. “Two black aces.” Another player said.

“Listen buddy.” Farha began, “I’ve been gambling for three days straight and I said to myself at the start of this, only aces.”
