I first met
Layne Flack at the Bellagio tournament in 2003. We played two satellites together and he was the life of the table, at least for me. I happened
to be seated next to him and the way he talked made me laugh. Some of the things he said (which I won't divulge) were arrogant and I loved that.
Since then, I have seen him on two World Poker Tour programs and that same personality shined through (although not as much as the first time I met
him). His style of play on the programs was fast and furious. He once stated that he plays without fear and it shows. Layne's best quality as a
player in my opinion is his ability to mix it up. It is difficult to put him on any kind of hand. No matter what the hand, he plays it well. Layne
is nearly unbeatable when he is at the top of his game. The disappointing thing about him is that he is not always at the top of his game. Another
player once told me that Layne would be the perfect teacher for a person who wanted to learn the game of No Limit Hold'em. This person said that
Layne knows exactly the right thing to do in almost any situation, but Layne doesn't always apply what he knows.
I remember watching Layne on television during the 2003 Championship Poker at the Plaza event and he was amazing. If I took the above mentioned player's
advice and had Layne teach me No Limit Holdem, I would make him divulge how he is able to read players so well. During the Plaza event, there was one
hand he was not involved in and he called out both players hole cards before the cards were turned up on the river. He was correct on both accounts.
