We can scrub another name from the “best player never to have won a World Series bracelet” list after Eugene Katchalov won the $1,500 Seven Card Stud event last night.
The Ukrainian-born pro outlasted a 357 runner field that included the likes of Tom Dwan, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and Sorel Mizzi to walk away with a first prize of $122,909. That figure may be small potatoes compared to his $1.5m score at the High Roller event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, but the kudos of the bracelet will certainly make up for it.The Team PokerStars pro overcame a 5 to 1 chip deficit to beat WPT Venice winner Alessio Isaia heads up, hitting consecutive cards on sixth and seventh street to hit a better two pair than his Italian rival to seal the title.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Eugene Katchalov $122,909 2 Alessio Isaia $75,911 3 Eric Buchman $48,961 4 Jonathan Spinks $35,476 5 Dennis Parker $26,083 6 Kai Landry $19,456 7 Ali Eslami $14,723 8 Vasili Lazarou $11,301 9 Jeremy Ausmus $8,800
