Layne “Back to Back” Flack got his nickname after winning two tournaments in two days on two separate occasions, first at the 1999 Legends of Poker and again at the 2003 Four Queens Poker Classic. Additionally, Flack won two World Series of Poker bracelets in 2002 and 2003, an impressive feat that’s one for the record books. Flack has been grinding the tournament circuit and claiming victories to the tune of nearly $5 million in live tournament winnings for the last twenty years. He proved he still has some major skills with six cashes at the 2014 World Series of Poker, including one final table. Even more recently, Flack can be found on an upcoming episode of Poker Night in America on the CBS Sports Network.
Know the Pros:
Layne Flack once bet that a 220-pound man could run a six-minute mile for $250,000. To his dismay, the man’s leg cramped up on the first lap. He also bet $100,000 that Ted Forrest couldn’t bowl a 100 game. Ted bowled it.
