Gamble's Stack Continues to Grow; Thompson Eliminated

MikePatrick • Level 20
Nathan Gamble

Nathan Gamble was all-in for his tournament life on the bubble, but after surviving that, he's thrived and run his stack up to almost 300,000 since, eliminating Jeff Thompson recently.

Thompson was all-in for his last chips on third street versus Gamble, showing a pair of dueces with a queen versus Gamble's nines with an ace. Their boards ran out as follows:

Jeff Thompson: {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{q-Hearts}/{j-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Nathan Gamble: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{a-Spades}/{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Thompson couldn't improve, while Gamble made two pair, nines and eights to eliminate Thompson.
