Another Chopped Pot for Katchalov

• Nível 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Eugene Katchalov

Another shove from Eugene Katchalov and another chopped pot, although on this occasion he was glad of the chop as he had to sweat the river card.

Pre-flop Katchalov moved all-in for 1,195,000 (roughly 15 big blinds) with {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, it folded to Oliver Price in the big blind and he peaked down at {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}. He took about 15 seconds to think it over and then announced call.

The {7-Clubs}{J-Spades}{6-Clubs} flop meant that only Price could win the pot outright. The {8-Clubs} turn meant that any club on the river would eliminate Katchalov and end his Triple Crown bid. The dealer revealed the {7-Diamonds} and Katchalov breathed a sigh of relief.

Chop pot.
