Dempsey's Turn

[user75032]

Sam Farha and James Dempsey are just trading pots back and forth now. Dempsey check-called all the way down on a flop of {a-Diamonds} {q-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {q-Spades}. At showdown he tabled a king and a queen in his hand for three queens. That was the winner.

Farha Regains the Lead

[user75032]

Sam Farha waited until the turn to raise James Dempsey. With the board showing {2-Spades} {q-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}, Dempsey bet and Farha raised. Dempsey called to see the board pair on the river, {10-Clubs}. Both players checked. Farha showed {k-Clubs} {q-Hearts} {7-Hearts} {6-Hearts}. He flopped two pair, queens and sevens, but was playing queens and tens by the river. It was good enough to scoop.

Back from the grave, James Dempsey is making the most of his second life. He called a pre-flop raise from Sammy Farha. On a flop of {5-Diamonds} {k-Hearts} {a-Clubs}, Dempsey checked and then raised after Farha bet. Farha called.

Dempsey bet the {9-Hearts} turn and the {q-Clubs} river. Farha thought long and hard before he called the river bet. Dempsey showed {j-Spades} {10-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} and a fourth card we couldn't see. He made a Broadway straight to collect the whole pot.

Another Double-Up for Dempsey

[user75032]

Things are getting interesting now. James Dempsey raised pre-flop and Sam Farha called. He said, "This could be it," before checking the {5-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {j-Diamonds} flop. Dempsey bet, Farha raised, and Dempsey re-raised. Farha made the call.

The turn was the {6-Spades}. Farha checked and called one bet.

On the river {5-Diamonds}, Farha may have inadvertently made a bet. The TD told him, "That's going to have to be a bet Sam." Dempsey then raised all in to 330,000 total and Farha called. Dempsey showed {7-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {2-Diamonds}, a full house and a bad low. Farha had no low and mucked, allowing Dempsey to claim the whole pot.

Scoop for Dempsey

[user75032]

James Dempsey certainly isn't going gently into that good night. It probably helps that he has a rowdy rail egging him on. Dempsey and Sam Farha both checked a flop of {a-Spades} {4-Hearts} {k-Clubs}. Farha bet the {3-Spades} turn and the {q-Diamonds} river, with Dempsey calling both bets. Dempsey's 6-low and pair of 4s was enough to scoop the pot.
