Eugene Katchalov is recognised by his peers to be one of the most talented poker players in the game today. Katchalov is in a great mood after his national team Ukraine beat Sweden 2 v 1 and it is showing on the felt. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet holder is searching for his 23rd WSOP cash and he is going about it in the only manner Katchalov knows and understands - cool, calm and collectively.
Katchalov raised to 800 in the cutoff and the player in the button three-bet quickly to 2,000. Back to Katchalov and he four-bet to 5,200. His opponent rammed his finger into his left ear and gave it a rigorous shake before shaking his cards into the muck.
Eugene Katchalov now has 33,000 chips.
