Alexander Farahi

Hand #95: Alexander Farahi raised to 1,100,000 on the button, and Pablo Mariz called from the small blind. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}, and both players checked to the turn, which was the {3-Hearts}. Mariz led out for 800,000, and Farahi called. The river was the {j-Diamonds}, and Mariz bet 1,100,000 this time. Farahi folded.

Hand #96: Mariz raised to 1,750,000 from the small blind and scooped the pot.

Hand #97: Mariz raised to 1,100,000 on the button, and Dejuante Alexander three-bet to 2,500,000 from the small blind. Mariz folded.

Hand #98: Alexander raised to 1,100,000 on the button, and Farahi three-bet to 2,600,000 from the small blind. Alexander called.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}, and Farahi bet 1,700,000. Alexander called. The turn was the {4-Hearts}, and both players checked to the river, which was the {2-Clubs}. Farahi checked again, and Alexander bet 2,200,000.

"What do you have? Nines or eights?" asked Farahi. Alexander didn't respond, and eventually called. Alexander tabled two nines, and Farahi showed two tens to scoop the pot.
