It's been a decent couple summers for Brian Rast. Last year, he shipped two bracelets, including of course the $50,000 Players Championship where he gave Phil Hellmuth his third 2nd place finish of the summer.
While he hasn't had any bracelets so far this year, he does have two final tables. The first came in the $1,500 Re-entry, where he took 6th for just under $140,000. Then, he also took 6th in the One Drop for over $1.6 million.
Well he just took his seat at the start of the level, and in the last 20 minutes, he has worked his stack from the 30,000 starting to a near chip leading 58,000. We will be sure to keep our eye on this exciting young player.
