Poker Stories: Garry Gates

Poker Stories

Garry Gates has worn many hats in the poker industry. After moving to Las Vegas from his native Titusville, Pennsylvania, Gates attempted to play professionally, with limited success. A chance encounter at the World Series of Poker, however, gave Gates an opening into the media side of the poker world. He then spent ten years working for PokerStars as a senior manager, dealing with player relations and community engagement.  Then last summer, Gates got to put his player hat back on for his annual shot at the WSOP main event. He had previously finished in-the-money three times, including semi-deep runs in 2011 and 2015. Gates surpassed all expectations, however, when he made the final table, ultimately finishing fourth for a $3 million payday. He has since taken a position with daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings as a New Business Executive.  Highlights from this interview include growing up with the Heisman and oil parties, getting the lead in Oliver!, learning about online poker from his dad, Elk's Club games with Loopy and the Butcher, sitting behind Doyle and Puggy at Binion's, how to lose $1,000 at $4-$8 limit, a long walk home from the Bellagio, why Tom Dwan needed six computer mouses, making Vanessa Rousso teach Barry Sanders how to play poker, being one of Jason Mercier's most successful horses, why he wasn't nervous at the final table, ignoring Mike Matusow criticisms, why Australia is his favorite poker trip, working in an underground mine, the resemblance between Justin Verlander and WWE wrestler Cesaro, and getting out of school to hunt deer in traffic.

Episode 157 – 16/08/2019 – Garry Gates

Poker in the Ears

James and Joe are back from their summer break and kick off the show by discussing what they've been up to in the last eight weeks. In Joe's case, that's mostly nothing, but he did make the final table of a charity tournament in LA, and has a fun anecdote involving Bruce Buffer and a swag bag. As the boys find themselves pitted against other poker commentators in a slightly awkward popularity contest, they resurrect 'Social Media Beefs' to take issue with Daniel Negreanu's Twitter polls. But the main focus of this episode is the 2019 World Series of Poker, and the success of EPT fan favourite Hossein Ensan and James and Joe's friend and colleague Garry Gates. Garry, who's Senior Manager of Player Relations at PokerStars, finished 4th in the Main Event for $3,000,000. He's this week's guest, and talks about his WSOP experience and all the podcasts he's already appeared on! Finally, Scott Bonz from Iowa competes for some brand new PokerStars merch in a 'Pet Sematary'-themed edition of 'Superfan vs Stapes'. Please rate, review and subscribe to #PokerInTheEars.
