Phil Unabomber Laak

Phil “the unabomber” Laak is a relative newcomer to the poker world, but he is one of the most memorable characters on the circuit.

The nickmane is derived from his wearing of hoodies at the poker table.

Between 1999 and 2003 Phil only entered 8 tournaments, 3 of which were the WSOP main event.

He proved to be a popular character, with his upbeat “life and soul of the party” outlook. He currently hosts E Hollywood Holdem.

He has also had a few successes during his career, including a win at the Hollywood Invitational.

He is good friends with Antonio Esfandiari and they often travel to tournaments together. Antonio also beat Phil to win $1 million!
