(Also note hexes are said to be 4 feet wide wide, so a 2-hex doorway is 8 feet wide, not 6 feet, but you might call a 6-foot doorway close enough to 2 hexes wide to count as such.)
The hexes are indeed 4 feet from side to side, but that makes them ~4.62 feet from point to point. So the empty space in the middle of that gate really is exactly 6 feet. (You may trust my OCD on this.)

But if the partial hexes there could invite confusion, then perhaps I should position the gate a little differently… LIKE SO? That way it's more obvious that there is a particular hex that is "standing in the gate's opening", and three hexes you can move to from it, which are all "in the arena".

Afterthought: This means my 50-foot Gladiator Pit is now a 48-foot Gladiator Pit. But that's cool, because multiples of 12 are better than 10 anyway. ;)
