Brian Rast Pays $100 to Learn He Made the Right Play Against Scotty Nguyen
Level 21: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Andy Seth raises under the gun to 26,000, Brian Rast reraises from the cutoff to 68,000, and Shooting Star Scotty Nguyen moves all in from the big blind for 216,000. Seth folds, and Rast asks the dealer to spread the pot so he can get a rough count.
Rast thinks and says, "Scotty baby, Scotty baby ..." Looking at his own stack, Rast has about 350,000, and would have about 200,000 if he called and lost.
Rast tanks for a while longer before he folds, saying to Nguyen, "I'll give you a hundred dollars out of my pocket if you show." Nguyen asks him to produce the money, and Rast hands over a $100 bill. Nguyen asks him what he had, and Rast says, "I had two tens."
Nguyen flips over J-J. Lon Diamond tells Rast, "Nice laydown."
Scotty Nguyen - 300,000
Brian Rast - 350,000
