Sam Farha

Sammy Farha is a professional poker player currently residing in Houston, Texas. He is best known for finishing second to Chris Moneymaker in the 2003 WSOP main event.

Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1959, Farha moved to the U.S. after the Lebanese Civil War broke out when he was in his teens. After settling in Wichita, Kansas in 1977, he attended the University of Kansas and graduated with a degree in business administration. He moved to Houston, Texas to work with his brother.

Farha first played poker one year after moving to Houston, and won several thousand dollars. He quit his job in 1990 to play poker full time.

Farha won his first bracelet at the 1996 WSOP in the $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha championship. He later finished 3rd in that same event in 2002.

Farha's best tournament finish was his 2nd place finish to Chris Moneymaker in the 2003 WSOP main event, earning $1,300,000. On the second day of play Farha lost a major pot to Barry Greenstein leaving him with only 10% of the average stack. He was considering leaving at this point and was talked into staying by Greenstein. He lost the final hand to Moneymaker after going all in with a pair of jacks on the flop, only to be called by Moneymaker who had flopped bottom two pair.

A couple of months later, Farha beat Moneymaker in a rematch orchestrated by PokerStars.

After getting another cash in the main event in 2005 WSOP, he won his second bracelet in the 2006 $5,000 Omaha Hi-low Split, earning $398,560

Farha has appeared on the GSN series High Stakes Poker, in seasons 1-4.

Farha is a spokesman for Harrah's casino in Las Vegas and made a cameo appearance in the 2007 film, Lucky You.

As of 2009, He has 3 WPT cashes, 7 WSOP cashes, and total winnings exceed $2,300,000 in live tournament poker, even though he tends to play primarily in high-stakes Omaha cash games.

Who the hell is "Dave Kaplan"? You mean Gabe Kaplan. Anyway Sammy is awesome. I love watching him play in the high stakes game. "Raisey Daisey" with Q6, off suit LOL! I loved watching Sammy take about $300K from that, donk, Jamie Gold with his aces.
Too bad Sammy actually had a heart and didn't take another $120K from Gold in the hand

bad_dog76 on November 30, 2007

i have to agree sammy gets me excited. i bet we would make good poker together, just kidding. i dont know who humphrey bogart is. but the important thing is, sammy is sexy.

jellibeans on January 22, 2007

I cringe every time I hear Dave Kaplan describe Sammy as "Humphrey Bogart". Sammy is the reincarnation of George Raft, the famous movie star of the '40's. Watching him is fun and reminds me of the old black and white movies.

Poppyswife on December 31, 2006

Everyone has his limit...Sammy reached his, and could go no farther....He knew he had Moneymaker beat, but no one can go beyond his limit. He is the poster child for all those who crashed at the gates of imortality!

????? on November 28, 2006

had gone thru every hooker in Vegas...but he does look like a poker player, don't he?

Zig on November 2, 2006

We ARE AT WAR!!!! Sammy is the THE MAN! Everytime I see the replay of that 2003 main event I always hope he'd call Moneymaker's bluff. He should've won that tournament. Maybe he was tired.

bad_dog76 on August 14, 2006

Haha how many poker players do you know that tell the truth?

How can you say he is classy when he lied to Moneymaker about folding pocket Queens.

ya gotta love his style,especially the unlit cigaretteand his cool.He's one of my favorite players cuzhe can be aggressive at any time and he can bluffwith the best of them.

Hey sammy your the one guy in poker ive molded my style as my screename on pokerstars is Nexbigthang and it has a picture of you at the final table in why dont you give me a pic that has you at the final of 05. Good luck bro i will see you at a table someday.

Unregistered on July 10, 2005

farha in great shape on day two. started day second overall. doesnt hurt when you double up on the very first hand dealt at the table on day one. farha with big stack. look out.

Unregistered on July 9, 2005

Nearing the end of day 1B, Sammy is among the chip leaders with 90000. Not a player you wanna see at your table with a big stack of chips. As a side note Moneymaker at last update was still hanging around at 9000. Each orbit now costs 1250 dollars so Moneymaker will need to find some cards and make a move soon.

wsop updater on July 8, 2005

this is the year of the pros at the world series. and in this main event you can see who is standing out. a poker pro knows how to adapt. last year was unpresidented in hbutow many people entered. butthis year with 3 day ones, a day two will be like playing in last years. farha is one of the chip leaders now.

loveland on July 8, 2005

whats with the tiger,he needs a boot up his ass

angry hard on on on July 7, 2005

Farha is a cool cat. I Don't like how he plays I admire it. I play like a sad rock(ultra tight) While Farha likes putting chips in the pot to see the flop. Head up He'd probably take me with his agressive style(not even begining to mention the gap in skill) But whats with the Cigarette? He doesn't actually smoke its all Image!And why do people focus on his Hold Em game? Hes a much mroe dangerous player In Omaha(I'd put him second only to Annie Duke the greatest living Hi/Low player)

BDST on June 13, 2005

Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer are excellent role models to the poker community. They have class and skill and are feared by most of all the top poker players today. They even are famous for their wins at the WSOP and have their website which you see on TV everyday. I feel that all you should respect them and admire their true ability to play cards at such a high caliber. I lso feel that they should have a signing session iwth Greg and Chris before every major tournament. Chris and Greg are NOT lucky...they are extremely skilled.....

Unregistered on June 8, 2005

I loved when he told Moneymaker lets just throw it all in and see what happens "you might have a better chance" and then said I mean "I might have a better chance" nicely put Sammy. Didn't work out for him but he's one of the best in the game and will be at 3 main event final tables before Moneymaker reaches 1.

daman69 on March 16, 2005

money maker's grandma could win the wsop with those cards. sammy farha is the coolest most suave playa in poker today.. money maker caught cards through out the bloody 2004 wsop and thats why he won.. catching a fukin ace on the river versus phil ivey is ass luck .. sammy is the king..

sam is totally cool, so cool in fact that someone asked me to investigate him and I turned the offer down - and as far as him being a brown faced terrorist, get real, he's playing poker and doing quite well at it, not bombing casinos.Good luck to you sam - but ya know gambling is haram.

POKER RUMOR OR TRUTH? on February 7, 2005

I heard he was kicked out of one of the hosting casinos of the WPO for repeatedly short stacking a pot or cheating a player out of chips and that he was escorted out of the casino by security. I've been told this by people who allege they were there and witnessed the ejection from the casino. Does anyone know if it's true? I also have heard he is somewhat of a hot head.

poker rumor or truth? on February 6, 2005

ive read this in other poker forums as well..i doubt it is true, as it would have been documented by some poker reporter that was there at the time...there are too many journalists there to not cover a story like until i read it or hear it from a reliable source, it didnt happen

iveyfan05 on February 6, 2005

Sammy is THE MAN

jimmie on February 5, 2005

Sammy's the best if moneymaker faced him regularly he would be crushed regularly!!!!

SICILIANO13N on January 19, 2005

Rumour has it he was caught taking chips from ... I can't remember which casino. Is this a lot of crap or is there truth to it???

HoldemJill on January 19, 2005

Farha is a great player, the prototype and image of what a pro player should be. Now could we at least get a decent picture of the man? I can't tell from that picture if it is Sammy or my college professor!

Obviously on January 16, 2005

I love his style, his attitude and his ability to handle the game perfectly. He is my favorite and I cant wait to see him play live one day !!!!!!

Tatertot on January 11, 2005

He is the greatest pot-limit Omaha player in the world, almost by general acclamation. Obviously can play no-limit a bit too, although I can't believe he made a perfect read on Moneymaker's pivotal all-in bluff in the 2003 WSOP and -still- laid down his hand. Also heard a story that Moneymaker, when he got heads up with Farha, offered to split the remaining prize money 50-50 and just play on for the bracelet, but Farha was so sure he was going to outplay and beat Moneymaker that he nixed the deal. Whoops.

cognito20 on January 5, 2005

To me that 2nd card looked like a nine, not a queen.

Eddie on December 30, 2004

Where are ya Sam? I haven't been able to catch you anywhere. Tired of seeing the same ol' crap from these guys.

I think Sammy's a little overrated when it comes to Hold'em. However, this is because he is an Omaha player. Also, I like the fact that he is a very good sport.

If you typed a list of attributes for the perfect poker player into a super computer (say deepthought for example). Then it would whir a little, hiss, splutter, then sing like an angel and dispense an image of Sammy Farha from my brand new dot matrix. bud-a-bing

Katchukablorg on September 19, 2004

Exactly as sam said, he's good against good players but bad against bad players (moneymaker). In a rematch hosted by online poker site, sammy killed moneymaker.

Rick on September 14, 2004

i love Farha's playing style and his style in general. In the 2003 WSOP, that was the best head-to-head's i have ever seen. i would have loved to seen Farha win it all.

Sammy Farha is the best. I had the chance to meet him over labor day weekend in vegas and he let me sit at the table with him and also gave me money to go but a camera to take pictures. Sammy if you are out there i need to know where to send a copy to. Your biggest fan!!!

what r u blowen him.i enjoyed his play in the 2003 wsop loike everybody else. but lets it we have not seen him since not even in omaha. hope he is doen well in cash games

gotubeat on August 15, 2004

isnt Sam farha half irani too??

haffe on August 14, 2004

I think Sam farha is one of the best poker players out there, because he is very smart, and he has a great pokerface.No one can read him, and he always takes the same time even if he is bluffing or not. Everyone says that he bluffs alot. But Sammy farha doesnt only think of the money, when he plays tournaments he want to play holdem not to play tight like everyone thinks he should do. Thats the different with him, He had fun the whole week in WSOP 2003 and came second. I think that is very strong of him. And Hes Looks doesnt make him a bader pokerplayer if you know what I mean :) He looks like a maffia typ of guy :) and He seems very generous, you must have a personality in Poker, like any other sports..

Haffe on August 14, 2004

Althought Sammy hasnt won that much and isnt known that well compared to others, he is a pretty good player and what i like about him the most is that he is difficult to read at times.

stevo on August 11, 2004

great poker player and looks like one 2

smash on August 8, 2004

farha is a stud, but clearly he is not at the top of the hold 'em world

michael on August 1, 2004

Therefore I felt like I had about a 20% chance to win the whole thing with 45 players left. However, I was dismayed to find out that Sammy Farhad was drawn to my right at the beginning of day 4, not because I fear him at all (although I believe that he is the best pot limit Omaha player in the world), but because he is very-very reckless in no limit Hold'em (by the way, I love Sammy!). Although I expected Farhad to do more damage to himself then to the other great players, I did witness him take out Tony Dee on day 4, when Farhad played Q-J off suit very poorly.Tony had raised it in middle position with Q-10, and Sammy called with Q-J off suit (I hate his call here before the flop). After a flop of Qh-10h-3d, Tony bet out big, and Sammy called (his call here was OK). On fourth street the 6s came off, and now Tony bet out $40,000, and Sammy called (by now, even the spectators in the hand knew Tony had Q-J beat). At this point Sammy cannot beat any hand at all, and he has to know that Tony is going to bet his last $50,000 on the river if he has Q-J beat. I believe that this adds up to an easy fold for Sammy. However, a jack did hit on the river, and Tony bet his last $50,000, and Sammy called and won.This was a pretty brutal way for Tony to go out! Sammy would have only had about $170,000 left if he hadn't hit the jack on the river against Tony-assuming he called the river. In any case, I thought, "Whoa, I didn't like the way Sammy played that hand at all. He will come after me weak soon, and hopefully give me a bunch of chips."

Farha sucks at holdem on July 30, 2004

That writing above is from showing all you farha fans he just got lucky to make it. but he is a great PL omaha player

Farha sucks at holdem on July 30, 2004

Tournaments... and especially big ones do require luck to win. However, the dead money term exists for a reason. If you don't know what you're doing you don't have any chance at all. The best player doesn't necessarily win but a competent one surely does.

sammy farha is the legend of all legends in the world of poker!

Sammy Farha has the best image/look of any poker player. I may emulate him.

SlfMade on July 18, 2004

this comment is for the moron comment above. farha would have broken even for the trip not lifetime and he didnt need to make a deal, hes a millionaire and has been for some time now, he only plays wsop tourneys and high stakes cash games.

the truth on July 11, 2004

Out of all poker players i thought sammy would be ahead in the money lifetime. Then i heard the comment he made if he won the tittle in 03he would just break even lifetime. I was a little supprised. Oh another thing most WSOP split the pot more evenly behind the cameras. Sammy wanted it all. If he made the deal he would have got another half mill.

splat on July 2, 2004

What the--- No Sammy for 2004! Was really looking forward to seeing him play. Still love ya Sammy.

MossyJaw on June 21, 2004

What about when Farha tried to get a read from Scotty Nguyen with a sorry ass smerk? Nguyen smerked right back and could have beat him playing blind. Nguyen and other top pros outplay this smelly jew all the time - dude plays too many hands.

He might have finished 10th in Omaha, but he was a first day LOSER in The Big One. New champ this year.

MM's a joke alright on May 22, 2004

Hey geniuses, check out who just placed 10th at the WSOP Pot limit Omaha tournament...your buddy Chris Moneymaker. I think people need to wake up and realize it's not luck to win this thing, all players need luck, but skill takes it down. Moneymaker recently won another big holdem tournament, and his 10th finish in Omaha also proves he's not a one trick pony. Get a clue haters. Incidentally, Omaha is supposed to be Farha's game but I did not see his name on the money list.

Moneymaker's no joke on May 20, 2004

Sammy Farha is awesome! Classy and refined. And I just love it when my fellow Lebanese people are doing well for themselves. He is a star!

I saw sammy last week at the Golden Nugget poker "tent". He had a younger woman sitting in a chair behind him. She was patting his back now & then and seemed to be his "girl". Though I'd like to fault him for being with such a young one, I can't. He was as always...impeccably dressed and a gentlemen.

Farha is the man! He is an amazing poker player. Be aware of this dangerous mind-reader. He will take 100,000 in one hand.

my favorite player. so entertaining, and just "looks" like a great poker should look. i like chris moneymaker a lot, and i'm sure he's going to get better and better, but everyone and anyone i know who enjoys hold'em agrees that Sammy was the best player at the table.

Eli/laxd77 on February 1, 2004

Sammy takes my tie for second in favorite players to watch. He is, though, exactly what a poker player should look like. I was glad to see Farha place so high in the 2003 WSoP, but HATED to see him lose to Moneymaker.
