Event #52: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship

Laplante Makes A Great Call

• Level 7: 400-800, 0 ante
Ryan Laplante from a previous event

Ryan Laplante checked a {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} board from the big blind, and Oleg Eltsov bet enough to put Laplante all in for his last 26,800. Laplante went deep into the tank for four minutes, mumbling to himself at times, and studying the 42,000 already in the pot. He eventually placed calling chips in the pot.

Eltsov turned up {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, and Laplante rolled over {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for aces-up and the double.

"Another minute, you would've been clocked," a tablemate told Laplante, who nodded and said, "It would've been reasonable."
