When Phil Laak, 37, and his friends (Antonio Esfandiari and Brian Rast just to mention 2) rented a few quad bikes and decided to race against each other, it was supposed to be a fun and thrilling experience. But it ended up being one of Phil Laak's worst nightmares after that he crashed with his quad bike and ended up at the hospital with 7 broken legs and other injuries.
"We were jumping over a sand dune, but there was a slope hidden behind it. It could have happened to anyone, seriously. Phil tried to jump off his quad bike in the air, but instead he landed straight on it. His elbow got crushed and his wrist was broken. One of his eyes also got badly injured. It was very, very close that he could have ended up blind on that eye." said Antonio Esfandiari to a poker magazine.
Phil Laak has also commented on the accident on his twitter. For example, one can read the following...
"The stitches came out today! 34 in all. It was not fun"
"Jennifer is the best. Cuddling w her is better for the pain then even my perkocet pain medicine"
Let's hope that Phil Laak gets well soon and that he gets the best possible comeback at the poker tables when he's fully recovered.
