Patricnz...I don't think there is a bigger fan of Layne Flack than me. However, I seriously doubt that Daniel will give Layne a rating of 10 for No Limit Holdem. Layne is good and when focused, appears to be great. But a 10? Even I don't think so.

he gave gus a 9.5 i believe layne is better than gus ,all of the pros except a few are very very closebut layne has the edge over them, its like he has a sixth sense for the game he was born to play it

When Layne is on... I agree he is a 10. But he lacks paitence and focus from time to time and that is what gets him in trouble. In my book, Layne will always be a 10, but if I am thinking objectively, I am not sure I could say a 10. An 8, a 9... sure. A 10...hmm, though I would love to give it to him, I just can't. (Watch the US 2004 World Championships. You will see him do some stupid things and he looked bored or unfocused. It wasn't bad beats like D'Agastino or like the bad beats Layne went through in Aruba.)

Layne Flack used this system one night at an Omaha 8/b final table at the Bellagio, when the limits were $2,000-$4,000! Erik Seidel and I were staking Layne that day, and I was chuckling as I watched Layne’s display, knowing that the world thought Layne was mad as a hatter. But my enjoyment that night was twofold as I teased my good friend Erik about the goings on (“Erik, he’s capping every hand in the dark, and the limits are $2,000-$4,000”). Needless to say Erik was not amused. In fact, the very next day, after Layne won the event—and $88,000--Erik “fired” Layne. Dark poker, Layne and I highly recommend it!
hellmuth articlei think this guy is a clown. i think if this guy wasnt friends with poker players who probaly regularly stake him he would be working at mcdonalds. i bet u he is broke. from what i have heard and read about him he sounds like a degenrate gambler

If you read the latest cardplayer article on Layne Flack, you would know that he no longer plays Omaha due to his creative play.

He still gave gus a 9 Layne deserves a 9.5, I saw that layne started chip leader of the tournament and busted out before the end of the show it was horrible lots of misfortune but he doent need cards to win hes layne

I am sure when most top players are on they are a ten.I heard flack is in debt to the tune of millions.I guess thats life of a TOP PRO

What we do does not define who we are. What defines us is how well we rise after falling.

Thats funny. A while ago, I saw Layne playing Thomas Keller on Full Tilt, heads up 200/400 Omaha hi/lo split for 2-3 nights. If that guy has given up playing Omaha, then Hellmuth has given up being a jack ass lol

Here is the quote from the Cardplayer Article:

Quote

“In poker, there are 100 things to do and you have to do 98 of them right. I played so many hands of Omaha. If you’re too creative, you don’t pay attention. So, I stopped playing Omaha. Once you think you’re good, you slip.
Here is a link to the entire article:http://cardplayer.co....php?a_id=14585Hey... maybe he has the same relationship with Omaha as I have to chocolate. I always say I am not going to eat any, but then I go to the mall, I see Godiva and then I cave.

Don't get me wrong, Layne Flack is a very good no limit player, but to say that he is better than Gus Hansen is seriously pushing things. They both play very aggressive, but the difference is that Gus has better reads and math to back it up.

I absolutely LOVE to watch Layne play poker. I started playing myself because of Layne (I was watching it on TV for a couple of years, then I saw Layne, then I wanted to play too.)I also totally agree that Layne is awesome at reading people. His issue though, seems to be that he will still stay in even though there is no way the winning hand will leave the action. I have watched him successfully steal pots but I have also watched him call with crap and bluff when the other person had the nuts. I am sure other tops pros have done this as well, but sometimes it just seems like Layne can not lay any hand down. That being said... when Layne is in control and he is manipulating the table, he is unstoppable. Granted... I think I have seen Layne play 5 or 6 times and then a few times online. So my oppinion really doesn't count for anything.I don't think any of us will ever know how great Gus, Layne or even Daniel is unless if we are at the table with them. One thing I am certain is that all three will take my money with no effort at all. :)Anyway... Layne does have something that few of the other Pros have and that is sex appeal. :club:

Other players wait until they can trap Flack and Hansen, I just think Hansen is better at putting opponents on hands. Flack is still a great player, I just think Hansen is at another level.
