Championship: Fariab Dodges Belly Buster

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 10K/20K/3K ante

Iraj Fariab limped in middle position then called a raise to 55,000 from Stewart Newman to the 9c8s6s flop. Fariab bet out 100,000 before Newman put him all-in for his final 380,000.

Fariab called and was at risk with top pair Qs9h against Newman’s double belly buster draw QcTc. The As changed nothing and Fariab hit the overkill trip Nines on the 9s for a big double.
