Gates Can't Win the Race for his Tournament Life

Garry Gates eliminated2

On the first hand back from the dinner break, action folded to Giuseppe Pastura on the button. He raised to 38,000. Garry "Beast Mode" Gates was in the small blind and reraised to 130,000. Pastura then reraised to put Gates all in. Gates made the call for all of his chips and put himself at risk for 414,000.

Gates held the {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} for two over cards to the {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} that Pastura held and it was a race for Gates' tournament life.

The cameras swarmed the table and began filming the action. The flop came down {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and so far, Pastura's jacks stayed in front, leaving Gates with just the turn and river to stay alive.

Fourth street was the {10-Spades} and paired the board, but changed absolutely nothing. Gates now had one card to catch an ace or a queen in order to double up.

The river...

...was the {K-Spades}. That was the end of the line for Gates as he failed to improve. He wished the table good luck and exited to the rail. Pastura moved to about 2.7 million in chips while Gates walked away with $47,107 in prize money.
