ok. first of all. Alot of you guys posting here pisses me off. Comon, listen to yourself... "phil laak sucks" "phil laak is immature" "unabomber is a offensive nickname" For the first, he does not suck, he is a "semi-professional" poker player, and ok he has REALLY much luck, but thats life. he gambles. His style is fun to watch.. And no, the other people playing on the final wpt-table with him did not got disturbed by his style. They seemed to ejoy it a bit.. (specially in the heads-up) also the dealer did not get nervous or whatever when phil got behind and looked over shoulder.. And about "his" nickname. Chill down, he didnt choose his style to try to look as the mailbomber Unabomber, the other gave him that nickname.. Phil Laak is a good, unpredictable player and it is amusing to watch him. So I say this to evryone complaining about him: Get a life.. Its a game..thanks.. /filip, sweden(excuse my bad english =))

i will not "chill down" lmao sorry j/k,,,i think what laak does at the table is a joke and disrespectfull to the other players at the table...he uses his "crazy"image to his benefit ,which is a good thing...he does make some awful calls and he sucks out soooo much, but some of that has to go to calling the correct pot odds...kind of like gus hansen...if he didnt act like corey feldman on crack, maybe his game would be more respected...but hey hes the one banging jennifer tilly while im here on my pc, so maube he;s the one doing something right<pardon the pun> lol

A good B-list player. Funny and entertaining commentator. I don't think he has what it takes to make it into the highest levels of poker, but I rooot for him.

I just had to post, after all the negative things said about phil laak. He is a great poker player, and yea he gets lecky a lot!! but everyone who calims his antics are "unamusing" youre all full of it, obviously youre attention was captured. and to the one who says he might suffer from a.d.d. youre a fool, his antics dont even mimic that of an attention deficit case, he is always in touch with the game, where as a.d.d. suffers are more apt to "space out". But back on point, Phil Laak is awesome!!!

One more thing, all the people whining about the nickname "the unabomber" who cares?! It's not like hes walking around with a bag of plastique explosive, he wears a hoodie and glasses, if you are oh so offended send a letter to WPT since they are the ones who initially referred to him as such. But I'm betting the ones whining were also objecting to the teletubbies homosexual inference of a purple character. Well in the interest of the conservatives, maybe we should refer to Mr. Laak and Happy sunshine glasses man.

I met Phil Laak in the Commerce Casino this week and personally watched him take many big pots off of some the best no limit players LA has to offer. He was one of the best players without a doubt. He was down to earth and approachable toward me even though I was the stereotypical, busted at the time, railbird. Phil, although you may be a soulless wasteland gamble to bone type of guy the players were seething at, my hats off to you and your pretty damn good play. P.S. Nice play on Toby, got a read on you though, see you April 15th.

I had the privalige of meeting Phil a while back. His antics may be child-like yes but he is quite nice and he is a very good poker player. But when you play for a long time at the table you always need some comic relief. I hope he never changes, it's just to funny to watch him

First of all, Phil may indeed have ADD, but that certainly doesn't mean he couldn't have gotten an engineering degree. Second of all, he is pretty cute. I wish he wouldn't always wear that hood.

I've known Phil "Unabomber" "Ultrajag" Laak for 9 years or so. All is never as it seems with him, which is of course perfect for poker. I could tell some hysterical stories. He is very hard to smack with a chair. The funny thing about him living with J.Tilly (met her at SJ couple months ago) is that she was in "Let It Ride", one of the best gambling movies ever.As for him being "lucky"......At that same tournament (Shooting Stars), I stepped into the snack bar and overheard some old nit telling a buddy "That Gus guy is just lucky, that's all." I mentioned this to another old backgammon->poker guy, X22, and he said "Lucky? Gus is UNlucky!"Funny

Phil Laak is unreal, hes my idol. Unreal poker player, makes the game more fun to watch and just seems to be a good guy. Luck you say? Ask any good poker player and ask them if luck has anything to do with it. Phil Laak is a great player.Peace Jlep5

Any of you who think phil is a bad player should watch the "bad boys of poker" WPT match where, in the first hand he bluffed out the devil fish with something like 92os.

obviously he is a student of the game as well. his girlfriend is a poker champ now. she didnt learn the game from anyone else. this itself is a telling tale of his game

Phil rung me again last night. He was a bit upset over how I took 24 quid out of his wallet the last time he slept over. I apologize Phil. I needed a hit of crack. I will pay you back.

Hey englishcat, if i EVER meet a real poker pro who happens to be one of your "friends" u always full of shit about on these boards, my first question will be "do u know of anybody called "englishcat"?" and they will say "who? never heard of the loser" and i will have the conversation recorded as evidence. So then everyone will see, if they already dont see it now, that u are the biggest lying piece of scum on earth.
