Laborda Snaps Off Wantman


We caught up with the action on the turn with 340,000 in the pot already on board reading {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Hilton Laborda led out for 215,000 from middle position and was called by his lone opponent - Matthew Wantman on the button.

The {Q-Hearts} completed the board and Laborda checked, prompting a 425,000 bet from Wantman. Laborda fell deep into the tank, but eventually slid out a call. Wantman showed {A-Clubs}{10-Spades} for a bluff and Laborda tabled {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a rivered two-pair, which was good for the pot.
