Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Katchalov in a Set-Over-Set Situation


An under-the-gun player, who we'll call UTG, opened for 800 and received a call from Eugene Katchalov in middle position. The rest of the field got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the {5-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop.

UTG bet 850, Katchalov called, and the dealer burned and turned the {2-Hearts}. This time UTG made it a healthy 3,500 to go, but Katchalov wasn't afraid and raised to 9,200. UTG made the call and then check-called an even bigger bet of 13,600 on the river with {5-Clubs}{5-Spades} for a flopped set. Unfortunately for him, Katchalov had flopped a bigger set with {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}.
