Turn Not Leigh's Friend

Jennifer Leigh is one of the many ladies in today's field. Well that is to say she was one of the many ladies, with her tournament life recently coming to an end in brutal fashion.

With a flop showing {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Hearts}, Leigh held {4-Clubs}{4-Spades} against one opponent who happened to be Garry Gates. This is when the action heated up as the two players got all the chips in on the flop, with Leigh's tournament life at risk.

Gates tabled {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and it was looking very likely that Leigh would take a nice double up, while Gates would be left struggling. Of course, the powers that be in poker aren't always so nice and when the {a-Clubs} was dealt on the turn and the {5-Spades} completed the board on the river, it was all over for Leigh.
