Layne Flack - "Back to Back Flack"


"Back to Back Flack" is Layne Flack because of his two consecutive event wins at the World Series of Poker 2002. He started out as a dealer and then decided he wanted to try his luck on the other side of the felt for a change.

Born in Rapid City, South Dakota but raised in Montana, Flack started to play poker before and after his job as a dealer at neighboring casinos. As he was in college working towards a degree in business, Flack realized that poker wasn't just paying his tuition fees. His big wins pushed him to leave school and pursue his poker skills.

While running games in Montana, he met Huck Seed, well-known professional poker player, who encouraged him to play at higher levels and head to Vegas. His first two tournaments he entered in only led to victory. One of the tournaments was the No Limit Hold'em Hall of Fame Poker Classic of 1997, and the other was the No Limit Hold'em Carnival of Poker.

Two years later, Layne Flack began his bracelet winnings at the World Series of Poker. First at the 1999 $3,000 Pot Limit Hold'em, then in 2002 back to back wins at the $2,000 No Limit Hold'em and the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em, 2003 $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo Split, and 2003 $1,500 Limit Hold'em Shootout. Other finishes in the WSOP that won him recognition were 1998's $2,000 No Limit Hold'em were he finished in second, $5,000 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo in 2000 he landed third, in 2001 again third in the $2,000 No Limit Hold'em, second place in 2005 for $1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em event, and fourth place at the 2005 $5,000 Short-Handed No Limit Hold'em event.

In the World Poker Tour Finals 2002 Layne Flack placed second in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event. In 2003 at the WPT Invitational Pro-Celebrity Tournament he scored himself a first place title. Then 2004 came rolling around and at the $6,000 No Limit Hold'em Final Day Poker Classic in Palm Beach Flack secured second place taking home half a million.

Just from the WSOP tournaments alone Flack amassed about $2,000,000 and altogether around $3.5 million.
