A player opened from under the gun and was flatted by Chris Laieta on the button to see a heads-up flop.
Flop: 5♥5♦9♦ Pot: ~160k
The under the gun raiser continued with a bet of 100k. Laieta raised to 250k and was then shoved on by the initial raiser. Laieta instantly called for 771k total and would be at risk.
Laieta 5♠5♣ vs Villain 7♥7♣ Pot: ~1.7M
Laieta had flopped Quads and played them fast with a raise on the flop and was rewarded with a full double up. He has been maneuvering with a below average stack for the entire day but is now likely in the Top 10 and in great position to go for his 2nd Big Stax title.
