Event #15: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Ace-High is Good for Rast

• Level 13: 400-800, 0 ante

Kane Kalas raised it up on the button and Brian Rast three-bet to 8,000. Kalas called and the flop fell {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. Rast checked to Kalas who dropped in a bet of 9,200. Rast called and the {q-Diamonds} landed on the turn.

Both players checked and the {10-Diamonds} completed the board. Rast checked once more and Kalas elected to go to showdown. Rast tabled {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and that proved to be good enough to collect the pot.

At the same table, Scott Baumstein has opened up a large lead over defending champion Justin Bonomo. The winners of these two matches will face off in the Round of 32.
