This is the highest buy-in tournament in the world with players paying $100,000 to take part.
The event attracted the game’s biggest stars with 38 of the world’s best showing up.
Laak’s good buddies Antonio Esfandiari and Andrew Robl both took part.
This event is a big one to win with the first place finisher being paid a whopping $1.5 million!
Phil Laak Eliminated
After barely surviving the first day’s action, the Unabomber showed up on the 2nd day as a short stack that needed to make a move at the table to get his hands on some more chips or head to the rail.
Disappointingly, it was to be the latter.
He got all his money in with Kd4d against the AcJc of Caio Pimentia.
The flop brought a J and there was no help to come for Phil and he was eliminated.
