Rast Up, Rast Down

[user101598] • Level 5: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Talal Shakerchi opened to 40,000 in the hijack, Brian Rast called on the button, and Jean-Robert Bellande called out of the small blind. The flop fell {3-Spades}{8-Spades}{q-Diamonds}, Bellande checked, and Shakerchi continued for 75,000.

Rast raised to 200,000, Bellande folded, and Shakerchi shipped his cards into the muck as well.

The next hand, Rast opened to 38,000 in the cutoff and David "Doc" Sands defended his big blind. The dealer spread {5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}, Sands check-called a bet of 51,000, and both players checked on the turn ({7-Clubs}) and river ({8-Hearts}).

Sands turned over {a-Spades}{q-Spades} for ace-high, and was awarded the pot.
