Brian Rast continues to accumulate chips at a furious pace early on.
Philip Sternheimer opened for 1,200 in middle position in a recent pot, and Rast three-bet to 4,000 from the big blind. Sternheimer made the call, and the two took in a flop, on which Rast bet 4,800. Sternheimer called, and Rast kept the barrels coming with 8,500 on the turn. Sternheimer again called, and the emerged on the river. At this, Rast fired out 27,000. Sternheimer tanked for awhile, asked for a count of the bet, and then decided to look his opponent up.
Rast flipped for trips, and that was enough to rake in the pot.
