Brian Rast

Shota Nakanishi raised to 125,000 from under the gun and Brian Rast pushed his last 90,000 chips in the middle from the cutoff. Ben Lamb got out of the way and the two hands were tabled.

Brian Rast: {10-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Shota Nakanishi: {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Nakanishi held a dominating lead but the flop of {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts} gave Rast a straight draw. The {9-Clubs}, {9-Diamonds} runout was no help to Rast who was ousted in third place.

The remaining two players are taking a quick break before heads-up play begins.
