Brian Rast

Brian Rast opened to 300,000 from the cutoff and was met by a three-bet to 800,000 from Joao Vieira on the button. The blinds got out of the way and Rast called to generate heads-up action heading to the flop.

On a flop of {3-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} Rast checked and Vieira continued for 400,000. After some consideration Rast moved all in and Vieira snap called to put the five time bracelet winner at risk.

Brian Rast: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Joao Vieira: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

Rast was behind but had the nut flush draw. The {k-Spades} turn changed little with the {5-Hearts} river sealing Rast's fate. He collects $347,658 for his efforts.
