The Road to the Top

There were eight people who went back for the final table, and the first one among them to exit was Vasili Lazarou. Quickly tailing him was Ali Eslami, exiting on seventh place. Next was Kai Landry, who was eliminated by Eric Buchman. Dennis Parker was next to go, once again eliminated by Buchman. Then it was Jonathan Spinks’ turn to go, also courtesy of Buchman. Then, unexpectedly, it was Buchman who was sent packing next, falling against Alessio Isaia. Finally, only Isaia and Katchalov were left to battle it out for the top spot. Isaia had a big chip lead at first, but Katchalov slowly but surely grinded back until they were pretty much even. Then, Katchalov won a big pot, putting Isaia on the defensive. At the final hand, Isaia went all in with a pair of kings. Katchalov managed to get a two pair at the river. By then, Katchalov had secured the win and earned his first ever World Series of Poker Bracelet.
