Farha Mauled by the Bear

Sam Farha

Barry Greenstein raised to 600 under the gun, and Scotty Nguyen called. Sammy Farha also made the call, and Phil Hellmuth couldn't fold his big blind. The flop landed {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, and Greenstein bet 1,200. Nguyen flatted, and Farha bumped it to 4,200. Barry three-bet to 14,200. Nguyen took his time folding, muttering about his hand. Back on him, Farha shipped it in, and Greenstein called.

Farha: {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Greenstein: {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

If they put their hands together, they'd have a six-card straight flush, but that's not how this game works. Barry turned over just about the worst hand Farha could possibly see. The {q-Hearts} turn and {4-Clubs} river didn't make either a straight or flush, and Greenstein's king-high was enough to knock out Farha. With the elimination, Barry is up to 77,000.
