Event #5: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Katchalov Catches King High Straight

tayke2 • Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante

Katchalov: (x)(x) / {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / (x)
Deeb: (x)(x): {q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{7-Clubs} / (x)

We caught the action in this hand between Eugene Katchalov and Shaun Deeb on fifth street. Deeb bet, and Katchalov raised. Deeb called, and then check-called on sixth and seventh street. Katchalov flipped up {k-}{10-} for a king high straight, and Deeb mucked.

After the hand, Eric Buchman needled Deeb a bit, saying that Katchalov seems to have his number. Deeb chuckled and responded with, "He just got there earlier then he usually does in that hand." Deeb drops to 76,000, while Katchalov is up to 88,000.
