Poker Hands

WSOP 2004 Final Hand

Greg Raymer 8-Diamonds 8-Spades versus David Williams A-Hearts 4-Spades

A full-house battle unraveled at the WSOP 2004 final table between Greg Raymer and David Williams. The blinds were at $50,000-$100,000.

Raymer was dealt a pair of 8's. Williams held {A-Hearts} and {4-Spades} and bet $300.000. Raymer called.

After the flop showed {4-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {5-Spades}, giving Willians a pair of 4's, Raymer checked. Williams bet $500,000. Greg raised to $1,600,000 and Williams called.

The turn brought the {2-Hearts}, Williams bet $2,500,000 with his two-pair, and Raymer raised another $2,500,000. Williams called.

The river brought the {2-Clubs}, and now both players had full houses, but Raymer with his initial pair of 8's obviously had a better one - deuces full of eights.

Both Raymer and Williams moved all-in. Raymer left the table with the WSOP 2004 Championship and a prize of $5.000.000.

WSOP 2003 Final Hand

Chris Moneymaker 5-Diamonds 4-Spades versus Sam Farha J-Hearts 10-Diamonds

The WSOP 2003 final table once again proved that any two cards can win the pot. Chris Moneymaker ($6.600.000 in chips) had {5-Diamonds} {4-Spades} vs. Sam Farha's ($1.800.000 in chps) {J-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}. And didn't Moneymaker's hand look hopeless compared to Farha's? It did.

Confident as always, Farha bet $100.000 from the small blind and Moneymaker called.

The flop came {J-Spades} {5-Spades} {4-Clubs} – Moneymaker had two-pair against Farha's pair of Jacks.

Chris checked, Farha bet $175.000. Moneymaker check-raised $275.000, and Farha moved all-in. Chris called.

Although the turn came a blank - the {A-Spades}, the river was a {4-Hearts}. A full house for Chris Moneymaker which made him the new champion.

WSOP 2002 Final Hand

Robert Varkonyi Q-Diamonds 10-Spades versus Julian Gardner J-Clubs 8-Clubs

WSOP 2002 finals with $20.000 - $40.000 blinds proved to be Julian Gardner's demise.

Robert Varkonyi had the {Q-Diamonds} 1{10-Spades}, while Julian Gardner was sitting with the {J-Clubs} {8-Clubs}. Vakornyi raised $90.000.

Gardner called, and the flop came {Q-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {4-Spades}, giving Gardner a flush draw and Vakornyi a pair of Queens. While Varkonyi bet $50.000, Gardner moved all-in with his $765.000. Vakornyi called.

The turn brought the 1{10-Diamonds} and the river brought the 10 [c], giving Vakornyi a full house and Gardner a flush. Varkonyi took the 2002 World Series of Poker Championship title, $2.000.000 in prize money, and a bracelet. And he helped shave Phil Hellmuth's head that year.

WSOP 2001 Final Hand

Dewey Tomko A-Spades A-Hearts versus Carlos Mortensen K-Clubs Q-Clubs

At WSOP 2001 finals, the deal brought Dewey Tomko the best possible hand - two Aces - he held {A-Spades} {A-Hearts}. Mortensen had {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, and raised to $100.000, while Tomko called.

The flop came with {J-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {3-Clubs}, which gave Mortensen the nut straight-draw and a king-high flush draw. Carlos Mortensen bet $100.000, but Tomko raised to $400.000.

Then Mortensen moved all-in. The turn came with {3-Diamonds} and, unfortunately for Tomko, the river brought a 9, giving Mortensen a King High Straight and victory.

WSOP 2000 Final Hand

Chris Ferguson A-Spades 9-Clubs versus T.J. Cloutier A-Diamonds Q-Clubs

Chris' actions at WSOP 2000 final table proved he made a big mistake which might cost him the title. But that mistake turned out to be probably the best mistake he did or could have ever done.

Back to the table: Ferguson had {A-Spades} {9-Clubs}, and T.J Cloutier was sitting with {A-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs}.

Somehow, Cloutier thought that Ferguson didn't look confident enough with his hand, so T.J. decided to move all-in. Ferguson called.

The flop came {2-Hearts} {K-Clubs} {4-Hearts}. The turn brought {K-Hearts}. T.J. still held the best hand and Chris was drawing to one of three cards to win the hand and the bracelet.

The river brought the {9-Hearts} giving Ferguson a pair of 9's and the title of 2000 World Champion along with $1,500,000 in prize money.
