Katchalov rides again at WPT Championship

Eugene Katchalov
In eerily similar fashion to his 2007 WPT Five Diamond win, Eugene Katchalov is running away with the WPT Championship.

Things are beginning to look rather familiar for Eugene Katchalov at the WPT Championship in Las Vegas.

At the Freddy Deeb headline the rest of a group of very strong players still in contention for the WPT Championship crown.

Although he will be a fair distance from Katchalov when play begins sometime after 12 p.m. Thursday, the venerable Scotty Nguyen is also well stacked and will come in brimming with confidence as usual.

"Of course I'm going to win baby," Nguyen told PokerListings. "What do you think? I'm going to say no."

The fight for a seat at the six-person final table and a shot at the more than $2 million first place prize continues with a plan to play five levels or down to ten players at Bellagio Thursday.
