Ivey Doubles Through Katchalov

• Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey opened with a raise to 20,000 from the cutoff and it folded around to Eugene Katchalov in the big blind who moved all in. Ivey called all in for his tournament life of 148,000 and the cards were turned over.

Ivey showed {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} and was off to the races against Katchalov's {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. The flop came down {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and Katchalov's sixes remained out in front. That all changed on the turn, however, as the {K-Hearts} struck the felt and gave Ivey the lead with a pair of kings. The {3-Diamonds} completed the board and Ivey secured a double up.

Ivey's stack now sits around 305,000 while Katchalov has fallen to about 110,000.
