Tatu Maenpaa Eliminated in 14th Place (€31,000)

[user265690] • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Tatu Maenpaa

A huge pot just played out at the feature table between Tatu Maenpaa and Eugene Katchalov.

Pre-flop Maenpaa raised to 50,000 from under-the-gun, Katchalov three-bet to 125,000 from the hijack, Maenpaa responded with a four-bet to 235,000, Katchalov moved all-in for an effective 989,000 and Maenpaa called all-in.

Katchalov: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Maenpaa: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}

The Team PokerStars Pro was a 70% favourite to eliminate Maenpaa and on the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} flop that percentage increased to 83% although the remaining queen and the three aces gave Maenpaa four outs twice. The {2-Spades} turn was a blank and made Katchalov a 91% favourite. The {9-Hearts} river was not one of Maenpaa's outs and he shook the hands of the table before exiting.

Katchalov is now up to 2,236,000.
