Brian Rast: The Journey That He Took

Written By: Maya Michaels | March 24, 2015 | Posted In Poker News

When you see Brian sitting at the tables, he doesn’t seem like the person that holds the six figure winnings. He is cool, laid back and happy to be there just playing the game, even if it means not winning anything. This is one of the rarest things you’ll find in a poker player but it is also the reason for the success that he has had in the past. When it comes to being overly excited at the table, all too often, the other players will notice this. This is when they know what is going on and what to do next while at the table. Brian, he is able to stay calm and collected and then actually cash out on the prize at the end.

Whats the Story Behind His Success

One of the biggest things that so many people out there talk about is the fact that he has gone through Zen training. This allows him to keep himself under wraps when it comes to being at the table, even if he is winning big and kicking butt. This Zen training allows him to sit comfortably, block out the outside going ons and be able to focus and concentrate on the prize at hand. This is the cash prize he wants to walk away with at the end of the tournament once he beats the other players at the table.

This training course is one that he teaches others and is able to provide those poker players with a way to be more focused on the table and within, then having to worry about the outside factors around them – something that Rast is very good at doing. After all, who would take Zen lessons from someone who didn’t know what they were doing?

We might know him from the tables, but his story is one that we do not actually know and want to know. When it comes to keeping his cool, we now know why that is but who is he, where did he come from? He had to start from somewhere and work his way from the bottom, up but where?
