Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Fardad Straightens Out McFayden

From the button, Neil McFayden opened to 25,000, and Farshad Fardad called from the big blind.

The flop came out {8-Clubs} {7-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}, and Fardad check-raised McFayden's continuation bet from 40,000 up to 140,000. McFayden promptly called, and he fired another 150,000 on the {7-Diamonds} turn. Fardad smooth-called this time, and he checked dark as the {A-Diamonds} landed on fifth street. McFayden checked it back to see the showdown.

Fardad tabled {5-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} for the straight, and McFayden returned his cards to the muck as his stack slips under the million-chip mark.

McFayden - 900,000
Fardad - 1.82 million
