A player opened to 250, Alex Kostritsyn called, and Phil Laak raised the pot (1,150). The original raiser re-potted, making it 3,850, and Kostritsyn went into the tank.
"This is great," Laak told our reporter. "I sit down and these guys are getting their chips in. By the way, I've always wanted a pair of neon shoes so today I woke up and bought these."
He lifted his leg up to exposed said neon shoes.
"I like them," he added. "They're poppin'."
Kostritsyn proceeded to fold, and Laak called all in.
"Can I used these too?" he asked the dealer, grabbing a lammer. "Or are they for later?"
Paul Volpe briefly explained the lammers to him before the hands were tabled.
"Oh wow you have aces," Laak said. "And spades dominated."
The player held as the board came out , and Laak was forced to cash in one of his lammers.
