Rast Rocked in Badugi

Brian Rast


Brian Rast raised the button and Mike Gorodinsky called in the small blind. Christopher Claassen folded his big blind.

On the first draw, Gorodinsky took two cards, while Rast drew one. Gorodinsky then check-raised a bet from Rast, who then called.

Each player drew one, and Gorodinsky kept up the aggression, betting again, with Rast coming along.

Again one card each was drawn, with Gorodinsky betting the end and getting called again.

Gorodinsky showed {4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{a-Hearts} for a wheel, saying he picked up the {4-Diamonds} on the end.

On the next hand, Rast was in the cutoff when he raised and was called by Ben Diebold in the big blind.

The players each drew two on the first draw, then one on the remaining two draws, with Diebold check-calling bets from Rast, before check raising him after the third draw. Rast reluctantly called to see Diebold roll over {9-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}.

The now former chip leader lost almost a thrid of his stack in this costly round of Badugi.
