Level 25: 150,000/300,000 (300,000)
Sadly, but true. The Latvian dream for Gatis Reigass to win the Main Event of The Festival Series has finished. We saw him having the chiplead not even too long ago with 11M in chips, but he seemingly had blown up his stack as he was down to just 800,000 in chips. He did manage to double it up first with Kings, but one hand later he had shoved all-in, when the button and SB had completed the blind. The button threw his cards into the muck, but the SB in the likes of Ali Ayub made the call.
Ayub: A 2
Reigass: A 3
Ayub was mentioned a 3 would appear on the board, which it eventually did. But it was the wrong 3 for Reigass as it made a Flush for Ayub. We say 'Au Revoir' to the flamboyant Optibet guy from Latvia, Gatis Reigass.
