Katchalov gunning for second win at 2011 WSOP

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 26, 2011 Posted in WSOP News | No Comments »

Coming into the 2011 World Series of Poker nobody questioned Eugene Katchalov’s poker playing skills, with millions in live tournament earnings and an excellent record in track record in cash games, Katchalov is considered one of the game’s preeminent players.

The one thing that was missing from Katchalov’s resume was a WSOP bracelet, something he remedied early on in the 2011 WSOP by winning the $1,500 Seven-Card-Stud tournament, and now it appears a second WSOP bracelet may be in the cards on Sunday as Katchalov finds himself at the final table of the $1,500 Limit Holdem Shootout event.

Katchalov, and the other nine remaining competitors who have won their Round 1 and Round 2 tables, will all start with the same amount of chips, and in essence will be playing a 1-table Sit & Go tournament for the coveted bracelet.

Joining Katchalov at the final table will be Ari “Bodog Ari” Engel and Jordan Rich, probably the best known players remaining after Katchalov. Here is a look at all of the final table participants and their seat assignments for Sunday’s action:

* Seat 1: Adam Tyburski

* Seat 2: Domenic Denotaristefani

* Seat 3: Stephen Bass

* Seat 4: Justin Pechie

* Seat 5: Jordan Rich

* Seat 6: Mathieu Jacqmin

* Seat 7: Christopher Kwon

* Seat 8: Dale Eberle

* Seat 9: Eugene Katchalov

* Seat 10: Ari Engel
