Laplante's Laydown Leaves Him Breathless


Despite Ryan Laplante being reduced to less than 27,000 in chips, he's all smiles after making a massive laydown against Jim Kendrick.

The action folded to Ryan Laplante who raised 675 before the flop; Kendrick called from late position, then called Laplante's bet of 675 after the flop of {Q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. On the turn of the {A-Hearts}, Laplante opened for 2,100, but Kendrick raised, making it 5,100 to go.

Laplante thought hard about it and after 90 seconds, returned fire with a re-raise worth 16,750. Kendrick flat-called, then after Laplante checked his option on the river of the {Q-Spades}, Kendrick shoved and Laplante frowned as he reluctantly open-folded {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

That frown was instantly turned upside down as Kendrick tapped the tabled showed {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}.

"YES!" Laplante gasped, throwing his hands in the air and leaning back in sheer relief. As we left, he was still trying to catch his breath - well played, Mr. Laplante, well played!
