Layne Flack named into 2022 Poker Hall of Fame

10 July 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today, the World Series of Poker enshrined Las Vegas poker professional Layne Flack into the 2022 Poker Hall of Fame. The highly anticipated commemoration was held in tandem with the Final Table of the WSOP Main Event and the Hall of Fame Bounty Tournament at Bally's - Las Vegas & Paris Las Vegas.

Known as one of the best ever seen in the region, Layne Flack’s legacy is highlighted by six World Series of Poker gold bracelets – earning his sixth and last bracelet in 2008 at the 39th annual WSOP. After winning two consecutive Legends of Poker tournaments in 1999, Flack was famously nicknamed “Back to Back Flack” and regarded as one of the best poker players in the world. Flack has played in numerous WSOP tournaments making his final mark in 2020 during the No Limit Hold’em Senior’s Event.

Flack’s dear friend and WSOP bracelet winner, Derick “Tex” Barch, offered a few words in honor of Flack’s induction into the Poker Hall of Fame.

“He (Flack) was an amazing friend, more like a brother. Through good, bad and all his mischief - Layne had your back!” said Barch. “Layne was close to my children. He would come and spend weeks at our house. Always entertaining them, taking them places and making sure it was all about them. When my daughter died this past January, one thing that brought comfort to me was to know that Layne would be there to greet her, and they could laugh together, in eternity.”
