Championship: Fariab Straightens Out Winzeler

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

Iraj Fariab might be the senior statesman at the table but he’s been showing them some moves throughout the day. The latest had him call a small 35,000 bet by Hans Winzeler after the Qc9h8s flop and then raise to 150,000 after Winzeler made a 6s turn bet of 75,000.

Winzeler called the min-raise and checked the 3c river to get an instant shove from Fariab. That prompted Winzeler to face palm and start the thinking process. It was a 279,000 shove and Winzeler finally called with two-pair Qs8c to see Fariab flopped well with JsTs.

The hand doubled Fariab up but Winzeler is still comfortable with approximately 1.4 million.
