On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, the WSOP School of Poker will host a one day tune-up

poker tournament circuit. Since 2011, he has amassed more than $1.6 million in online earnings
and an additional $835,749 in live earnings. This past summer, Laplante had his big break out
when he topped a field of 2,483 entries to win the WSOP Event #12: $565 Pot-Limit Omaha for

that I have the experience and skill set that can help all skill levels of players appreciate and
enjoy the game with the same depth that I do.”
