Katchalov Takes One From McDonald

[user72235] • Level 2: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Eugene Katchalov opened the hand in the hijack seat with a 3,000 raise and was called by Anatoly Gurtovoy in the cutoff. Action folded to Mike McDonald in the big blind who called as well and the three saw the flop go {K-Spades} {9-Clubs} {4-Clubs}.

All three checked and the dealer opened the {8-Clubs} on the turn. McDonald checked again and Katchalov fired 7,000. Gurtovoy made a long and silent pause and had finally decided to let his hand go. McDonald, however, stuck around and pushed in the call.

The river brought the {8-Hearts} and McDonald checked again. Katchalov bet 17,000 and McDonald paused once again for a minute or two before folding. Katchalov mucked and collected the pot.
