This episode of Hand Histories on PokerGO features a pinnacle hand in Rast’s career where he uses his years of poker acumen to put together a call that sent him back on the winning path.

The Premier League featured the best in No Limit Hold’em in 2013 and Rast fit the bill per his status at the time. In need of points to advance to the next round, Rast faced an almost impossible decision against the unpredictable Phil Laak.

Rast recounts his thought process during the hand and why this spot proved to be more than just a poker hand. His confidence was lingering but Rast’s instincts never left him. There is no solver for gut.

Daniel Negreanu’s story ends in tragedy but Rast rises to win this hand and move his career to the trajectory he’s on now. That career includes four bracelets, the most recent of which came this summer in the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw event streamed on PokerGO.
