Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Kojo Catches Katchalov

• Level 10: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Kunimaro Kojo and Eugene Katchalov saw a flop of {3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and quickly had all of their chips in the middle. Katchalov showed the {Q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for top pair and a strong kicker, but found himself trailing the two pair of Kojo, who held {2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. The turn was the {K-Spades} and Katchalov was down to five outs to stay alive. The {5-Clubs} on the river was a blank and Kojo advanced to Round 3.
