Safiya Umerova Wins Her First WSOP Gold Bracelet

Safiya Umerova raises to 200,000 from the button. Niall Farrell thinks for a moment, and moves all in for his remaining 1,740,000. Umerova takes her sunglasses off, looks over at Farrell and decides to call.

Umerova tables   , and Farrell shows   .

Farrell walks over to his rail, and says to Umerova, "Good call."

Before the flop comes down, Umerova's rail yells, "Ace! Ace!"

The flop comes    , and the rail erupts. Before the dealer puts the turn out, Umerova's rail shouts, "Heart! Heart!"

Sure enough, the   comes down on the turn.

The river is the  , and just for good measure, Umerova makes a flush, eliminating Farrell.

Farrell has yet to capture a WSOP bracelet, and finished second in a side-event in 2013.
