Unabomber Blown Up on River

• Nivo 5: 75-150, 0 ante
Phil Laak Busts

We missed the action ourselves but according to Rich Ellis, the player who busted Phil Laak from today's tournament, the "Unabomber" shoved all-in for about 2,400 chips after Ellis raised to 425.

Ellis made the call with his {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and found himself dominated by by the {A-}{J-} of Laak. According to Ellis, the flop provided two diamonds and gave Ellis 9 additional outs to take the pot. The turn was a blank and the "Unabomber" was one card away from doubling up.

A {K-} on the river was not the card Laak wanted to see, however, and he made his way over to wife Jennifer Tilly's table to inform her of his fate.
