Brian Rast opened to 1,200 on the button, and Phil Ivey defended his big blind. The two saw a flop, and Ivey check-called 1,800. Rast upped the stakes to 5,000 on the turn, but Ivey was undeterred. On the 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.
