Gruissem Straightens Out Rast

• Level 6: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Brian Rast opened to 38,000 from late position and Jean-Robert Bellande flatted from the cutoff. Action folded to Philipp Gruissem who tagged along in the big blind. The trio saw {9-Hearts}{J-Spades}{10-Diamonds} hit the felt and Gruissem checked. Rast continued for 54,000, allowing Bellande to get out of the way. Gruissem called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Gruissem led at the pot for 110,000. Rast called and the {3-Clubs} finished off the board. Gruissem cut out one final bet of 260,000. Rast sat shuffling chips while pondering his action. Roughly 90 seconds passed before Rast dropped out a call.

Gruissem tabled {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a straight, eliciting a shrug from Rast. He mucked his cards and Gruissem scooped up the pot, bringing him back over the two-million mark.
