EPT10 Prague: Eugene Katchalov chats about Shevchenko, charity and his Day 1B

One of the best things about having Eugene Katchalov as a friend would be his willingness to dispense poker tips. Perhaps the second best thing would be his willingness to tell bad beat stories on your behalf, so you can avoid the humiliation and the rolling eyes.

Andriy Shevchenko, the Ukraine football star, had Katchalov in his corner for yesterday's EPT Charity Challenge, which meant tips on how to beat Negreanu, and then the full lowdown on how it all went wrong. "He got it in good..." Etc., etc.

Enjoy a few minutes in Katchalov's company as Laura Cornelius catches up with the Team PokerStars Pro.
