Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Shakerchi's Flopped Flush Sends Rast Packing

• Nivo 9: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Brian Rast

While following a hand on Phil Ivey's table we heard the dealer on the adjacent table announce, "Seat open!"

We rushed over to the table and saw Brian Rast gather his belonging, as he was just knocked out by Talal Shakerchi.

Isaac Haxton was kind enough to reconstruct the hand for us and he explained that Shakerchi raised under the gun and Rast called. The flop came down {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Shakerchi checked. Rast bet, Shakerchi put his opponent all in and Rast called.

Shakerchi showed {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a flopped flush while Rast was looking for a fourth heart with {A-Hearts}{3-}. The turn and river brought mere blanks and Rast the rail in the final level of the day.
