Poker pro Sammy Farha wins 3rd WSOP bracelet

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 15, 2010 Posted in WSOP News | No Comments »

High-stakes poker pro Sammy Farha was able to hold off two players looking for their second World Series of Poker win in 2010, James Dempsey and Michael Chow, to capture his third career WSOP bracelet. Farha took down the $10,000 buy-in Omaha 8 or better World Championship, and pocketed an impressive $488,241 in the process. Amazingly it was only Farha’s 7th cash at the WSOP, although the high-stakes cash gamer plays a very selective tournament schedule.

Sammy Farha is one of the coolest professional poker players, and it’s that cultured laid-back attitude, along with his runner-up finish in the spectacular 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event, that has made the Lebanese poker pro a fan favorite.

With his usual confident attitude and beaming smile, Farha also pulled off one of the great one-liners when asked what it was like to win the same event a second time –Farha won the 06’ Omaha 8 tournament, at the time a $5k buy-in—Sammy responded with, “In a way, it’s like I won it two years in a row. I did not play this event in 2007, 08, or 09.”
