Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Queens Fail Katchalov

Shamus • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
Eugene Katchalov

Preflop action resulted in two players -- Lee Markholt (small blind) and Eugene Katchalov (button) -- seeing a flop come {8-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Markholt checked, Katchalov bet 4,200, and Markholt called. The turn was the {10-Spades}, and Markholt checked once more. This time Katchalov shoved all in for about 17,000, and Markholt quickly called.

Katchalov showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for a set of queens, but that turned card had burned him as Markholt tabled {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for a straight. The river was the {4-Diamonds}, and Katchalov is out. Meanwhile, Markholt has about 90,000 now.
