Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Ivey Binks Two-Outer; KO's Katchalov

[user101598] • Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Eugene Katchalov (Day 1) - Eliminated

Eugene Katchalov was first to act, and raised to 20,000. JC Tran three-bet to 50,000 on his direct left, Phil Ivey moved all in for 325,000 on his direct left, and Katchalov tanked for a minute or so before calling all-in for 275,000. Tran folded.

Katchalov: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Ivey: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

The Ukrainian was in great shape to double, but the {6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop gave Ivey a set of nines. The {q-Spades} on the turn left Katchalov with two outs to survive, and the {k-Diamonds} on the river was not one of them.

He hit the rail, while the nine-time WSOP bracelet winner is now up to 654,000 chips.
