Farha, known to provide great television (runner-up to Moneymaker in the "most important WSOP Main of all-time, his fantastic entertainment on High Stakes Poker, and who can forget his masterful destruction of actor (Dawson's Creek) and Goldie Hawn son, Oliver Hudson, on the first hand of 2005 series (see video at bottom of this post for the bloody details) ...

Farha wins his third bracelet - and he had to survive a strong Final 18 to do so ... other notables scoring points: James Dempsey, Michael Chow, Eugene Katchalov, Mike Sexton, Eric Basebaldy Baldwin, David Bakes Baker, Steve Zolotow, Jean-Robert Bellande and John D'Agostino ... finishing in the Top 27 (not receiving points): Chino Rheem, Miami John Cernuto, Jeffrey Lisandro, Huck Seed, Pat Pezzin and Dan Heimiller.

This is the second time that Farha wins this event, The Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better World Championship.
