PokerNews decided to stop by the respective tables of Eugene Katchalov and Marcin Horecki to see how they were getting on. They both won pots whilst PokerNews were there, with Katchalov having to work harder to do so.
He opened to 700 from under-the-gun+1 and Luca Dal Cerro called from the big blind. The flop checked through, Dal Cerro then bet 1,000 on the turn and Katchalov made the call. The fell on fifth street, Dal Cerro came out betting again, this time the price was 1,700. It was a price Katchalov liked as he swiftly called and just as quickly Del Cerro flung his cards face down into the muck.
As for Horecki, he too made it 700 to play, but from the cut-off, everyone folded to this bet, including the big blind who showed as he did so. With that small gain Horecki is up to 43,000.
