Sam Farha is known as a professional poker player with the net worth of $100 million. Sam Farha has earned his net worth through his winnings in many poker tournaments, as well as his cameo appearance in the film Lucky You. He was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1959.
Ihsan (Sammy) Farha (born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1959) is a professional poker player. He is best known for finishing as runner up in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event in 2003 and has won three bracelets at the WSOP.
Farha moved to the United States 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. He graduated with a degree in business administration and moved to Houston, Texas to work with his brother. Farha first played a game of poker a year after moving to Houston, and won several thousand dollars. He quit his job in 1990 to play poker full time.
Farha's biggest tournament finish was in the 2003 World Series of Poker main event, where he finished second to Chris Moneymaker for $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.
In a rematch between Farha and Moneymaker a few months later, organized by PokerStars, Farha won. They played against each other again in a special match during 2011 World Series of Poker, which was won by Moneymaker in best-of-three format. Farha also finished in the money in the 2005 WSOP main event.
All of Farha's bracelets have come in Omaha events.
Farha is working on a book, tentatively titled Luck is Not Enough, a reality TV poker series, and a video game[citation needed]. He is a spokesman for Harrah's casino in Las Vegas.
He has appeared on the GSN series High Stakes Poker, in seasons 1-4.
As of 2010, his total winnings exceed $2,800,000 in live tournament poker, although he tends to primarily play in high stakes Omaha cash games. His 9 cashes at the WSOP account for $2,540,043 of those winnings
