Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Charette's Queens Cripple Katchalov

We caught up with the action just as a huge pile of chips were being passed on to Simon Charette. It appeared that Charette and Eugene Katchalov had gotten into a preflop raising war with Charette getting all in for his last 173,000 against Katchalov, who had him covered.

Katchalov: {9-}{9-}
Charette: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

The {10-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} board did not improve Katchalov's hand and Charette doubled through.

Charette is back up to 300,000 while Katchalov is down to his last 90,000.

Simon Charette ca 350,000 -100,000
Eugene Katchalov ua 90,000 -225,000
