Event 1: $1,100 No Limit Hold'em

Goodbye Mr. Gates

Gates is G-O-R-N ...
The dream is over and it's back behind the laptop for PokerNews general Garry Gates after he was busted at the hands of Sarvesh Pershad.

Pershad raised preflop to 5,000 and Gates called to go heads-up to a flop of {7-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

Pershad opened for 6,500, Gates raised all in and Pershad called tabling {K-Spades} {K-Clubs} ahead of Gates' {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}

The turn of the {7-Hearts} filled up Pershad, but Gates could still win with any ace on the river or the case seven - but the {6-Clubs} didn't exactly fit the description.

Gates is busto; Pershad has cracked the 100,000 mark.
