Make it three for three! The first three hands at Table 10 have all resulted in eliminations.

The most recent was Brian Rast, who finished fifth in the Aussie Millions Main Event yesterday for AU$315,000 and opted to buy-in to this event at the start of play. His time lasted exactly three hands.

His demise came when he jammed under the gun for 241,000 and Isaac Haxton three-bet shoved for 246,000 from the cutoff. The rest of the players folded and Rast found he had some major kicker problems.

Rast: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Haxton: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

The {9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop changed nothing, though the {7-Diamonds} turn did give Rast a flush draw. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {2-Hearts}. It was a blank as far as Rast was concerned.

"I almost made the final table," he joked before taking his leave from the tournament.
