Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Rast Gets Ivey to Muck

[user249920] • Level 2

Pot-Limit Omaha

Brian Rast opened to 1,200 on the button, and Phil Ivey defended his big blind. The two saw a {5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} flop, and Ivey check-called 1,800. Rast upped the stakes to 5,000 on the {2-Diamonds} turn, but Ivey was undeterred. On the {2-Hearts} river, the action really picked up, with Ivey check-raising to 30,000 after Rast fired 11,500. Rast took his time, thinking for awhile before tossing in a raise to 85,000. Now it was Ivey's turn to tank. After a few minutes of cutting chips, he ducked his head flicked his cards into the muck.

Rast has already claimed one win in this event, taking it down in 2011 for $1.7 million. He's off to a good start on his quest for number two.
