PokerStars WCOOP Main Event

Katchalov Not Runninggreat

Eugene Katchalov Eliminated

Team PokerStars pro Eugene Katchlov has admittedly been running pretty well this year. But we all have our bad days.

Katchalov was just eliminated from the Main Event in brutal fashion to leave Mickey "mement_mori" Petersen as the lone member of Team PokerStars in the tournament. Canada's "Runninggreat" raised to 21,400 from under the gun and Katchalov and two others called. The flop brought {J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and "diggidave" checked. Runninggreat bet 50,000 and Katchalov put in a raise to 136,000. The other two players got out of the way and Runninggreat re-raised enough to put Katchalov all in. Katcahalov called with {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and was in great shape against his opponent's {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}, but the {A-Spades} fell on the river to send the Ukrainian pro to the rail in 66th place.

Earlier in the day, Katchalov finished second in the WCOOP $10,000 8-Game High Roller event for $140,000.
