Ryan Laplante Becomes a Run It Once ProDecember 8, 2016 10:57 am
Poker training site Run It Once was founded by high-stakes pro Phil Galfond, and boast a comprehensive lineup of some of the best online pros in the world. In fact, on the site’s “Meet The Pros” page there are ninety players listed, with that number soon to increase by one after Ryan Laplante joins the troupe.
Throughout his career, the US pro has amassed $901,381 in live tournament winnings, including this month taking down the $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha WPT Five Diamond Classic for $36,172. However, Laplante’s biggest score to date came this summer in Las Vegas after he won the WSOP $565 Pot-Limit Omaha event for $190,328. In addition, Laplante has racked up a further $1,661,356 playing online under the screen name “Protential”.
Laplante currently runs an online training site called Poker Protential, where the player is introduced in the following way:
“At only 26 years of age he has 4 WSOP Final Tables with 1 Gold Bracelet. He is the winner of the largest live non-holdem tournament ever. He also has amassed over 1500 hours of coaching experience and does his absolute best to give students a great value and personalized experience.”
Ryan Laplante offers his coaching services on the site for $125 per hour, but now Run It Once members will be able to benefit from his elite coaching at just a fraction of that price. He also joins an elite line-up which includes such other notable pros as Phil Galfond, Ben Sulsky, Jason Koon, George Danzer, and James Obst, to name but a few.
While the online poker market is mostly focussed upon attracting recreational players to the game, once many of these players develop a taste for poker they will often seek out professional advice and guidance to help give them an edge over the competition. This is where training sites such as Run It Once can play a pivotal role in widening an amateur player’s options and contributing to the long-term future of the game.
