Chow Slow Rolls Room

Stud-8

Michael Chow: (X-X) / {q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} / (X)
Eugene Katchalov: (X-X) / {8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds} / (X)

We got there as a short-stacked Chow bet out on fourth, and a big-stacked Katchalov called. Chow bet all in on fifth, and Eugene called again. Al Barbieri announced an all in and a call, and the field instantly shifted to the two feet around the feature table. Chow had buried {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs} but Katchalov began with {8-Spades}{6-Clubs} for two pair. He caught the {j-Hearts} on seventh, which didn't change anything. Chow squeezed his last card and announced miserably that it didn't have any spots, meaning he was down to two aces to avoid elimination. Except that Chow was wrong and it did have spots. He flipped over the {4-Clubs}, giving him aces up to scoop the pot. He ended up with 130,000 rather than 0, and the rest of the room ended up mad.
