Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

The World in Pain

Shamus • Nivel 3: 75-150, 0 ante

Eugene Katchalov opened with a raise to 350 from the hijack seat, then John "Johnny World" Hennigan promptly raised to 950 from the cutoff. Daniel Negreanu folded from the button, as did the blinds, and Katchalov made the call.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Katchalov checked, Hennigan bet 1,100, and Katchalov paused a beat before calling. Both then checked the {5-Diamonds} turn. The river brought the {6-Hearts} and another check from Katchalov. Hennigan cut out chips and pushed out 2,300, and Katchalov didn't waste much time check-raising to 6,200.

"Oh... the pain," exhaled Hennigan with roll of the eyes, eliciting a chuckle from Negreanu. A few seconds later Hennigan tossed his cards dealerward.

Hennigan slips to about 16,000, while Katchalov chips up close to 25,000.
