Rosskamm Doubles Through Gates

[user153638]

Garry Gates raised to 22,000 from early position and cleared the field all the way to Andrew Rosskamm in the big blind. Rosskamm chose to exercise his option with a three-bet to 87,000, which Gates saw fit to call. When the flop fell {J-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, RossKamm wasted little time in moving all in for 200,000 and Gates made the call.

Showdown
Rosskamm: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Gates: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Rosskamm was at risk, but he held the best hand; however, Gates could catch either a seven, queen, or ten to take the lead. The dealer burned and slowly turned the {2-Diamonds}, a blank as far as Gates was concerned. Again the dealer burned and put out the river . . . {5-Diamonds}.

Gates missed his draws to drop to 720,000 while Rosskamm doubled to nearly 600,000.

Chip Counts
