A flop reading was checked by both players but the turn saw Katchalov bet 1,300 and Traniello call. The river brought the into play and Katchalov bet again, this time 2,100 only to see Traniello raise very quickly to 5,900.
Katchalov went into the tank for over two minutes before he mucked his hand..
With about 23,000 chips in the middle, the board read between Mark Radoja and Will "The Thrill" Failla. Radoja fired 5,800 and Failla tanked for a bit before making the call. Radoja tabled the for a straight and Failla mucked his hand.
David Williams is sat in the lobby talking to Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Erik Cajelais so it is safe to say the man who was short-stacked is out of the Main Event.
World Series of Poker November Niner Sam Holden raised from the cutoff seat and was called by the player on the button. The flop came down and Holden bet 1,100. His opponent announced a raise and made it 3,000 to go. Holden gave it a little bit of thought, but then folded and relinquished the pot.
Extra chips for those of you who were hungry for more!
A selection of chip counts for you fine people.
