Brian Rast Eliminated on the Money Bubble

Brian Rast Eliminated

Hand #4: Daniel Negreanu picked up {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds} in the cutoff and raised to 22,000. Brian Rast also looked down at a premium holding of {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} on the button. Rast shipped all in for 392,000 and was instantly called by Negreanu.

Rast was in danger of falling just short of making the money and would need a lot of help. The flop came {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{10-Clubs} and as they say in poker, "There's always a sweat". The turn brought the {9-Clubs} and the river landed the {7-Diamonds}. Rast was unable to improve and was eliminated on the money bubble.

With the elimination of Rast, the final five players are all guaranteed at least $132,000. They will now bag up their chips and return tomorrow for the third and final day of the Main Event.
