Things can change in a hurry in tournament poker and Robert Gray is living proof of that as his stack has gone from 300,000 to over 1,300,000 within Level 25. Gray doubled up at the start of the level and found one more all-in win to move up the leaderboard.
Oluwashola Deadman opened for 70,000 from under the gun and Said El Harrak called in the small blind. Gray jammed for 555,000 out of the big blind and Deadman called. El Harrak tanked for a minute and folded 8♣8♠ face-up. Deadman was ahead with 9♦9♥ against the A♦9♠ of Gray but the A♠K♦Q♣ flop quickly changed that.
Deadman was left to draw to the last nine in the deck but missed on the last two cards to ship the double and fall to 1,620,000. Gray is playing 1,340,000 and at his final table peak.
