Kagawa's Kicker

• Level 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Humberto Brenes opened to 3,000 from middle position, Masa Kagawa called on his direct left, and Eugene Katchalov called out of the big blind. The flop came down {2-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}, and the action checked to Kagawa who tossed out 6,000. Katchalov called, and the turn was the {7-Spades}. Katchalov checked again, and Kagawa fired 12,500. Katchalov called.

The river was the {4-Clubs}, and both players checked. Katchalov tabled {a-Spades}{j-Spades} for a pair of aces, but Kagawa's {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} had him out kicked, and he won the pot.
