Alan Katnelson

Vigorn Dancharnjitt and Alan Katsnelson wasted no time mixing it up. Early in the heads-up action, Katnelson open-shoved his button for 905,000 and Dancharnjitt called with the bigger stack.

Dancharnjitt: Jc6c
Katsnelson: 6s3d

Dancharnjitt was in great shape to finish the tournament right there but Katsnelson miracled a three on the Qh4s3h flop to take the lead. The Kh turn and 7s river finished the unlikely double for Katsnelson.

Alan Katsnelson – 1,840,000 (61 bb)
Vigorn Dancharnjitt – 1,145,000 (38 bb)

Soon after, Dancharnjitt was all in and at risk with Jd4h and Katsnelson called with a chance to win holding KsQd.

Neither paired the board on the Th3h2d8s3c run out and Katsnelson’s won with his kickers.

It was a quick end to the tournament and Katnelson earned his first career WSOP Circuit win.
