Event #40: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Gates Hooks Elpayaa

[user153638] • Lygis 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Garry Gates

Action folded to Garry Gates in the cutoff and he raised to 7,000. Joe Elpayaa, who was on the button, responded by moving all in for 51,000, which prompted both blinds to fold. Gates then snap-called.

Gates: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Elpayaa: {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Elpayaa seemed to know he was in trouble even before Gates tabled his hand. While that proved true, Elpayaa could still win with a little luck. The {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop gave him a little help when it paired his three, but he would need either another or an ace to stay alive. The {5-Spades} turn wasn't what he was looking for and neither was the {K-Diamonds} river. Gates' jacks held and he sent Elpayaa to the rail in 72md place.

Meanwhile, WSOP bracelet winner Vincent van der Fluit was eliminated from the same table a short time later.
