The river was the . This time Rast fired a bet of 3,700. His opponent sat for about a half-minute, rechecked his cards, then suddenly tossed out two orange (5,000) chips for a raise to 10,000.
Rast looked up at the ceiling and exhaled, thought for about 15 seconds, then folded his hand face up — for two pair. His opponent likewise showed his hand — for a set of fives.
"When I want you to call you don't and when I don't want you to, you do!" complained Rast's opponent. He nodded and smiled, turning his attention to the next hand.
