A Little Steam Keeps the Train Going
A player raises from early position to 225 and he gets three callers, including Phil Laak in the cutoff and both blinds.
The flop comes and action checks to Laak who puts out a bet of 375 on the button. Only the big blind calls.
"I'm steaming," the big blind says.
"That's ok," Laak responds. "A little steam keeps the train going. My mother used to say that."
The turn is the and both players check.
"I lied," Laak says. "My grandfather was actually the one who used to say that."
The river is the and the big blind checks again. Laak bets 1,500 and that earns a fold from him opponent.
"Does anyone want to see it?" Laak asks. "If anyone wants to see it all they have to do is give up a hand later."
One player at the table agrees and Laak shows down his for two pair, eliciting some laughs from the table.
Phil Laak - 22,500
