Phil Laak Not Playing Games At The LAPC

No ski-masks or hijinx, Laak in serious grinder mode.

The World Poker Tour Main Event of the Los Angeles Poker Classic kicked off yesterday and tournament director Matt Savage has whipped out the camera to give us some small chunks of the early action to watch.

Here’s, we catch up with F5 favorite Phil Laak as he plays a big pot for the entirety of his stack. His opponent, Jake Schwartz bets the turn and as Phil goes to make a call, he puts in enough chips for a min-raise. Was it by accident or is the Unibomber playing mind games? Either way, he gets his tournament life in on the river. No quips, no push-ups…just poker.

In case you didn’t notice at first, that’s Jeff Madsen sitting to Laak’s right.
