Eugene Katchalov - 5th Place

Hand #49: Eugene Katchalov was first to act, and raised to 48,000. He received no callers.

Hand #50: Cary Katz raised to 48,000 in the cutoff, Dimitar Danchev three-bet the pot out of the small blind, then showed queens when Katz folded.

Hand #51: Katz was first to act, and raised to 50,000. Katchalov three-bet the pot (174,000) out of the small blind, Vincent Bartello tanked for nearly a minute before folding in the big blind. Katz moved all in and Katchalov called.

Katz: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Katchalov: {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

Katchalov was dominated, and after the flop fell {7-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Spades}, he was drawing very slim. The Ukranian native would need the {9-Diamonds} to make a set or running non-spade straight cards to survive. Unfortunately for him, the {2-Spades} turned, leaving him drawing dead. A meaningless {5-Clubs} completed the board, and Katchalov hit the rail in fifth place.

Katz now sits with nearly 800,000 chips.
