Laak Takes Chance

• Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante
Phil Laak

Phil Laak’s stack has not been heading in the right direction so far but he has just taken down a pot against Chance Kornuth to turn things around.

We caught the action in a three-way hand on an {a-Spades}{2-Spades}{k-Hearts} flop with Kornuth, who is sitting in the cutoff, opening for 350 into a pot of 650 when both big blind Laak and a player sitting under the gun check.

Both Kornuth’s opponents made the call with all three checking the {3-Clubs} turn. The {a-Clubs} river brought a 1,375 bet from Laak, which was enough to get the under the gun player to bow out. Kornuth however, looked interested.

“Give me a hint.” Banters Kornuth, but Laak, wearing a cap and sunglasses, gave nothing away.

Kornuth did eventually make the call only to pitch his cards into the muck when Laak rolled over {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} to climb back up to 22,200 while Kornuth dropped to 15,750.
