B000000M! Win with Katchalov's fours and scoop 100 big blinds
Welcome to day four of B0000000M!, our week-long give-you-money celebration of (almost) 1,000,000 hands BOOM!ed. All week we've been giving you 100 big blinds each time you win with the chosen hand of the day at showdown on a Zoom table (as long as you remember to BOOM! it, of course). Today it's the turn of poker machine and Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov to choose. It would take quite a few 100 big blind bonuses to catch up with his $7,216,938 in live tournament winnings...
Thursday, 25 October 4♥4♦
Why this hand? Eugene Katchalov won $1,500,000 at the 2011 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller beating fellow Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu heads-up. Both players were all-in pre-flop with small pairs. Negreanu held fives, Katchalove held fours. The flop was clear for Negreanu but the turn was not. Four! "I got very lucky. For obvious reasons, this hand has been very memorable for me," said Katchalov.
