Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Big Gain for Gates

Shamus • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Garry Gates and Nicholas Verkaik just found themselves involved in another confrontation, this one bigger and more crucial than the last.

Preflop back-and-forthing ended with Verkaik all in with {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} against Gates' {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}. The board brought five low cards -- {4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{7-Spades} -- and Verkaik has been eliminated. Meanwhile, Gates is now stacking 659,000.
