At the very start of the EPT10 Deauville Main Event, Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov talked to the PokerStars blog about his journey over the last two years to becoming physically fit via exercise and eating well. The "before" and "after" pictures of him are striking. So, too, is there a sharp contrast between the 30,000-chip stack with which he began the tourney and the 3.28 mllion he brought to today's final table, making for a compelling sequel to Katchalov's story.
