Rast vs. Hellmuth

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 8: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Brian Rast and Phil Hellmuth have a lot of history dating back to 2011 when the former defeated the latter in heads-up play to win the $50,000 Poker Players' Championship. The two are seated together at Table 8 and it was no surprise to see the two mix it up.

It began when Hellmuth opened for 3,000 from the hijack and Rast three-bet to 7,800 from the button. The blinds both folded, and Hellmuth called before checking dark. Rast continued for 9,000 on the {6-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{a-Hearts} flop, Hellmuth quickly called, and both players checked the {5-Spades} turn. When the {5-Clubs} completed the board on the river, Hellmuth bet 7,500 and Rast thought for a few moments before making the call.

"Ace no kicker," Hellmuth said and flung over the {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. It was good as Rast sent his cards to the muck.
