Brian Rast wins 4th career bracelet, Brunson comes 6th

Doyle gets a standing ovation, Negreanu teaches a masterclass and winning moments become spinning moments in today's round-up.

Another title for Rast

Brian Rast

All the attention may be on Justin Bonomo right now but ignore Brian Rast at your peril, as he just added another major title to his collection. 

The former Super High Roller Bowl champion has just won the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship, considered by the poker purists as one of the toughest bracelets to win, for $259,670. 

This is Rast's fourth career bracelet and he has previously won the $50,000 Players Championship twice. It also takes his career earnings up to $21,129,935.

TexDolly went out in style, making the final table and coming 6th for $43,963.

Given that he is perhaps the biggest icon the game has ever produced, he naturally got a standing ovation for this very impressive effort for an 84-year-old:

Winners of $0.25 Spins with 100x multipliers and all other stakes with 25x multipliers or better will get their own bespoke video:

Negreanu's Masterclass

Finally, Super High Roller Bowl runner-up Daniel Negreanu is the latest expert to be invited to do a 'Masterclass' - a series of video courses from megastars in their field.

Ron Howard, Gordon Ramsey, Malcolm Gladwell, Helen Mirren, Martin Scorsese, Garry Kasparaov, Steve Martin, Serena Williams and Samuel L Jackson have all previously given Masterclasses in their profession, and now KidPoker is doing one for poker:
