Rystadt on a Massive Rush

mnuwwarah • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Curtis Rystadt has been at Table 2 all day, so it was much to our surprise when we noticed him sitting with more than 340,000 before a recent pot.

A player in early position bet 5,000 on an {8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs} flop, and Rystadt raised to 11,000. The small blind cold-called, and the bettor folded. On the {7-Spades} turn, the small blind checked and Rystadt bet 12,500. His opponent tanked for a while before folding.

"You play a hand with me, I'm gonna make you play for your whole stack," Rystadt said with conviction.

According to David Bach, Rystadt was down to about 5,000 early in the day before doubling with {a-}{8-} against {k-}{k-}. Since then, the cards have clearly continued to fall Rystadt's way, as he's built up a monster stack.
