John Gale

Team PokerStars SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo is back in the black here after busting the venerable John Gale.

The multiple bracelet winner and brain cancer survivor shoved in on the turn of an {a-Spades}{4-Spades}{k-Spades}{5-Clubs} board for 160,000 with about 90,000 in the middle already.

Moreira de Melo didn't call quickly, but she did call with the {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. Gale was on the {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and graciously said good game on his way out the door when the {k-Hearts} river bricked.
