Phil Laak was one of the first players to get eliminated from the tournament but up until now, details had not been available. We just spoke to Chance Kornuth who was still sitting at the table Laak started at.
Kornuth told us that Laak check-called a bet in a three-bet pot on before both Laak and his opponent checked the on the turn. A completed the board and Phil Laak check-called all in for 10,700. His opponent showed for the nut straight and Laak mucked before getting up to leave the tournament area.
