Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Smirnov Doubles

• Nível 4: 150-300, 25 ante

Eugene Katchalov raised to 700 from middle position and action folded to Mikhail Smirnov on the button who went all in for a total of 11,750. Katchalov called and the hands were revealed.

Katchalov: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Smirnov: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}

Smirnov was going to need some help to stay alive and indeed the flop brought the {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} giving him a pair of queens and the lead. Katchalov could still catch an ace or a king to win the pot but the turn and river brought the {5-Hearts} and {7-Diamonds} and Smirnov doubled to 24,300 while Katchalov was left with 36,500.
