Webjoker • Level 18: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Eugene Katchalov

Eugene Katchalov opened to 35,000 from the button with 457,000 behind. Igor Kurganov in the small blind carefully cut out 95,000 and slid his three-bet forward. Dominik Nitsche instantly folded and the action was back on Katchalov. He moved all in and Kurganov called.

Eugene Katchalov: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Igor Kurganov: {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

The flop came {J-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Katchalov and Kurganov shook hands. "Good game man" Kurganov said to Katchalov.

Katchalov still had a small chance of doubling up but as soon as the {4-Spades} hit the turn, it really was all over. The {8-Hearts} on the river was of no importance to anyone anymore, and Katchalov headed for the exit just before the start of the (45-minute) dinner break.
