Layne Flack

Layne Flack With A Douchebag Comment In 3, 2, 1...

In the above video, Layne Flackshatters the world record for making a douchebag comment to start an interview, previously held by Pauly Shorewhen he said, "It's the weee-zelll...owwwww...glaze your do-nuts..." in 1993 on Mtv. Seriously, we go back and forth between not being able to remotely tolerate the guy to having the utmost respect for him as Flack clearly does not give a sliver of a fuck what people are writing/saying about him.

In related news, Justin Young is currently the chip leader at the WPT Championship. Absolute must to check out the site for continuing updates here. Their crew does the best job in poker...

Layne Flack Might've Blown a .00...

...but he was definitely drinking the night before the NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship when he got the DUI.

Not that it's a shocker. Andrew Robl had already blogged about drinking with him at the event (before deleting that bit from his post). And now Layne admits to some glasses of champagne as well.

Yet he still managed to blow a .00 hours later. Flack's tolerance level for booze is like Superman's for heat. Unbelievable.

Layne Flack on His DUI Arrest

Trust us the last thing we want to do is keep posting images of Layne Flack's toothy mug on this site, but hey, the guy is in the news lately.

Amanda Leatherman got a hold of him at the WPT Bay 101 to ask Layne about his DUI. Leatherman seems like she can barely take the words [that somehow escape his teeth] coming out of his mouth seriously as Flack says he'll "always refuse a breathalyzer test" (so this is something he's done before?) and that he eventually blew a 0.0 a few hours later. 

Last thing we'll ever do is knock a guy who loves life, but after a stint in rehab and a DUI arrest, you'd think he'd take this shit a little more seriously. Oddly and in a weird way though we kind of like his I-don't-give-a-fuck attitude, actually. Maybe Flack is related to Jeffrey Skilling or something.

In somewhat related news, at post time the awesomely named Lars Long leads Day 1B at Bay 101. Chip counts here.

Layne Flack Talks About the Russ Hamilton Ambush Video


Meant to post this last week but sometime a little thing called a weekend meth bender "life" gets in the way.

Layne Flack was a guest on Gary Wise's Rounders Radio podcast where he spoke on the Russ Hamilton ambush video for the first time.

About halfway through the interview, Gary describes how "very rudely" intruded on Layne and Russ' "private time" (because, you know, allegedly stealing at least $6 million from your friends and then going AWOL isn't even remotely rude). Layne says that when he saw the cameras, he "knew that wasn't a spot for me to be in."

Layne also said that he knows "for a fact that Russ Hamilton's lawyer said 'don't say a word.'"

Now the one thing we always felt Layne was unfairly skewered for in that video was that he may have just been golfing with Russ because he's a gambler and saw an edge he could exploit. Makes sense. Pretty common. Layne says that that's a "fair" assessment of why he was with Russ that day. Not that we were expecting him to say something else though.

But then Layne completely discredits himself by saying, "If [Russ] took all of this can one man do this without being caught?" to which Gary said, "That totally makes sense."

Yeah, kind of hard to believe how Russ could get away with something like that with a company that he started and was integral in developing the software for...inconceivable.

Layne Flack Mugshot

Layne Flack: Official Statement on DUI

From Layne Flack's reps:

"I attended the Draw Party at Pure on Friday night and then met with my brother, who had flown into Vegas for Heads Up. I was under the impression that I was to play in the last bracket the next evening at around 8 pm. I was pulled over for speeding and refused a breathalyzer test as I have been instructed to do. I have no idea why I was written a ticket for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. There were no emergency vehicles around, besides the police car. A test, given by the Las Vegas PD, later revealed that I had a blood alcohol content of zero. I also took a blood test, as I have nothing to hide. I was held for the mandatory 6 hours and released. I always go out of my way to not drink and drive. I regret that I was not able to play in NBC Heads Up and hope to be invited next year to play in this prestigious event." 

Ok, this Layne Flack DUI arrest statement is just going to fan the flames. We're really to believe Layne had a blood alcohol level of zero? Sure, maybe if he was sober (as in, kicked the drinking in rehab) we'd be willing to suspend our disbelief just a little bit. But dude was drunk last weekend at the WPT Invitational, so we know he's kicking a few back. We're really expected to believe a guy known for having some alcohol issues was pulled over for driving 21 mph over the speed limit and was subsequently thrown in jail for no other reason? Come on, Layne.

UPDATE: Andrew Robl writes that he did tequilla shots with Layne at the draw party. Hard to believe a few hours later Layne would have a blood-alcohol level of zero. Read here. Thanks to reader Faybarpio for the link.

UPDATE II: Robl for some reason took the part about Flack off his blog. Yeah, nobody saw it man. It wasn't pasted all over the place. You deleted it off the face of the Earth like it never happened! Sly one, that Robl.

Lastly, I was admittedly quite drunk and somehow convinced the legendary Layne Flack to take shots of tequila with me. I was not thinking straight, so it was not the most responsible idea to convince someone who has had his battles with his vice demons to jump back into the hell of temptation. We ended up getting quite drunk and I went home to get some sleep while his night continued. This afternoon, I was alerted to a 2+2 gossip post that revealed that Flack was arrested for a DUI and had to forfeit his tournament entry. I feel pretty guilty about it. As anyone who knows Layne knows he is a super nice and charismatic guy regardless of the mistakes he made.

Huck Seed, 31 Others Advance in NBC National Heads Poker Championship

NBC_National_Heads-Up_Poker_Championship_trophy Round 1 of the 2009 NBC National Heads Up Poker Championship is done. Some notes:

:: Obviously the big story of the day was Layne Flack's DUI no-show. His 2009 so far is the equivalent to Baumer's epic meltdown at the U.S. Nationals. Not good.

:: One story we actually will follow sort of is Vanessa Rousso's "journey." Her profiles was "raised" a bit with the SI Swimsuit pic, and she's actually very relevant for this tournament because of the commercial. After beating Doyle Brunson in Round 1, if she can tackle Phil Ivey today and make a deep run, Rousso could be the epicenter of talk for this year's tourney.

:: While it probably won't get much T.V. coverage, one of the more interesting matches today is Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies v. Bertrand Grospellier. Sahamies because he's not only nuts but one of the best online poker players in the world today, and Grospellier because he's one of the best live tournament players in the world today.

:: The other really interesting match is the other online superstar, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who takes on Barry Greenstein.

:: Jerry Yang actually won (!) his first round match and plays John Phan.

:: And finally, of course, our pick to win it all, Huck Seed, won again, and will go up against Gus Hansen in what would be a compelling match if Seed ever showed some personality.

Layne Flack Arrested for DUI


So Layne Flack is having a bad year.

Flack failed to show for his first round match and was replaced by David Oppenheim. Reports Poker News:

Earlier we reported that Layne Flack missed his heads-up match. Producer Mori Eskandani told us it was because Flack was in an accident on his way home last night.

It's unclear whether or not there was any accident, but we can now confirm that Flack was arrested last night on his way home from the bracket-drawing party. The stated charges are driving 21MPH or more over the speed limit, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and driving under the influence.


Update: Here's the police report.

UPDATE: NWP does a verification of his arrest/bail out here.

Wasn't Layne Flack in Rehab?

We're not 100% on this, but we're pretty sure Layne Flack did a stint in rehab. Seems like that worked out pretty good for him. posted a great video from the WPT Invitational Saturday night. We really didn't feel like "going there" in our first write-up, but why not now: basically everyone at the event was super cool. It was a lot of fun. The WPT, Matt Savage, and the Commerce Casino did a great job putting it all together.

All the celebs and pros were in good spirits. However there were all two people that were acting like complete douchebags in the event: Layne Flack and the guy with the big forehead in the background of this video.

Anyway Layne, before you declare your love for Trishelle Cannatella, make sure you've got about 47 condoms to wrap around your dong and are already taking Valtrex.

Having said that, Trishelle looks way better in person than you'd think. Too bad her vag has been a parking lot for half of the penises in Las Vegas.

Flack douching it up below.

Fun with Flack from PokerListings TV
