By the time we arrived at Eugene Katchalov's table, there was already a huge pot brewing between him and Sean Rice. At this point, there was already a board out on the felt and roughly 80,000 in the pot. It was on Rice to act here and he checked. Katchalov then bet 50,000 and it was back on Rice. After just a few moments, Rice check-raised to 175,000. This is when the ESPN camera crew came over to the table and focused in on Katchalov.
Katchalov took over two minutes to decide what to do, eventually making the call. Rice tabled immediately, with the turned straight enough to send Katchalov's cards into the muck and leave a huge dent in his stack.
