Katchalov Doubles Through Hutter... Twice

[user153638] • Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Eugene Katchalov moved all in for 55,000 from under the gun and cleared the field all the way around to Barry Hutter, who called from the big blind.

Hutter: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Katchalov: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

It was a flip, but things weren't looking good for Katchalov on the {7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{j-Clubs} flop. The {J-Hearts} turn gave him some hope with a flush draw and the {4-Hearts} river actually completed it to give him the double.

In the next hand, action folded to Hutter in the small blind and he moved all in to put Katchalov to the test. Katchalov folded.

Right after, action folded to Hutter on the button and he opened for 18,000. Katchalov three-bet all in for 104,000, Hutter called and the cards were turned up.

Katchalov: {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Hutter: {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

It was another flip. Once again, Katchalov would come out on top after the board ran out {7-Spades}{k-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.
