• Nível 31: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante
Eugene Katchalov

On the first hand of heads-up play Sotirios Koutoupas raised to 200,000 with {J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Eugene Katchalov defended with {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. On the {6-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{A-Hearts} flop Koutoupas bet 150,000 and Katchalov called. The {10-Hearts} fell on the turn, Katchalov led for 350,000 and Koutoupas folded.

Two hands later Koutourpas made the same pre-flop raise with {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Katchalov called with {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. On the {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop Koutoupas c-bet 150,000 and Katchalov just called. The {9-Diamonds} turn gave Katchalov a full-house, he checked and so did Koutoupas. On the {3-Diamonds} river Katchalov led for 400,000 and Koutoupas folded.
