Brian Rast Eliminated in 14th Place ($26,439)

Sam Stein raised to 20,000 from early position and cleared the field all the way around to Brian Rast, who defended from the big blind. The latter proceeded to check the {Q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop and watched as Stein bet 22,000. Rast thought for a few moments and then announced he was all in, prompting Stein to snap-call.

Showdown
Stein: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Rast: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Both players had flopped top pair, but Stein's ace kicker had him out in front. Neither the {5-Clubs} turn nor {7-Hearts} river would help Rast, and he sent his stack of 175,000 over to Stein.
