Moreno Busts Katchalov

Eugene Katchalov

We were taking our first run through of the tables after the break and saw that Eugene Katchalov's seat was empty. We asked Andrew Moreno if he remembered the details, and it turned out that he was the one that did Katchalov in. He gave us a breakdown of the hand.

According to Moreno, he raised it up to 1,200 in middle position. Katchalov called from the small blind, as did the player from the big blind. The flop came {j-}{9-}{4-} rainbow, and it was checked to Moreno, who fired out 2,200. Katchalov check raised to 5,600 from the small blind, and the big blind folded. It was back to Moreno, and he moved all in for 20,000 effective. Katchalov made the call, putting his tournament life at risk.

Katchalov: {a-}{j-}
Moreno: {q-}{10-}

Katchalov had flopped top pair top kicker, but Moreno was still drawing very live, as a king, queen, or nine would work for him. A {10-} came on the turn, givin Moreno two more outs, and the {q-} on the river gave him a winning two pair.

Katchalov's WSOP came to an end with that hand, while Moreno jumped back up to 49,000.
