Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Gates Busts 2004 Main Event Champ


Greg Raymer raised to 450 and Garry Gates called from the small blind. The flop came down {J-}{6-}{2-} with two hearts and Gates checked. The 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event champion fired 500 and Gates called.

The turn was an offsuit {3-} and Gates checked. Raymer checked behind. The river then completed the board with an offsuit {9-} and Gates fired 3,000. Raymer tanked for a bit and then called, leaving himself with just 100 chips behind. Gates showed a set of sixes and Raymer mucked his hand.

"All you had to do was make it an extra 100," said Raymer. Either that or he didn't care." Raymer then busted two hands later.
