Event #38: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em (Four Handed)

Anderson Doubles Through Laak

• Nivel 4: 100-200, 0 ante
Phil Laak Short on Chips

Calvin Anderson was under the gun and he moved his entire stack of 3,950 into the middle. Phil Laak dropped enough chips to call into the middle and the blinds folded their cards.

Anderson tabled {Q-Clubs}{j-Spades} and stood up from the table while Laak showed {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. The two were racing for Anderson's tournament life as the flop brought {6-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

Fourth street saw the {8-Spades} hit the felt and the {10-Clubs} finished the board, giving Anderson a queen-high straight.

"He made the straight!" chimed Laak. "That's brilliant!"

Laak was forced to ship most of his stack over to Anderson, who now has about 8,100. The Unabomber is now down to just 3,000 in chips.
