PokerNews spots poker pro Phil Laak reading Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier’s The Raiser’s Edge during the 2011 WSOP Main Event.
Right about now, life is good for Mr. Phil Laak. He just finished 4th in Event #57: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better, which was good for $133,377 and a seat in Annie Duke’s Epic Poker League. Today, he’s been playing on his iPad, reading Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier’s Raiser’s Edge, and he even grabbed the ESPN film crew to give a shout out to All American Dave; the famed chef/trainer who feeds so many grinders at the WSOP.
Oh, and he’s also ran his stack up to around 80,000 chips. Pretty sick, kid. Pretty sick.
