Layne Flack (born May 18 1969 in Rapid City, South Dakota) is an American professional poker player, residing in Montana and Nevada.

Flack started playing cards with his grandparents, but became engrossed in the game whilst working at a casino. He would regularly go to another casino after work to play poker. Despite becoming the Night Manager in his job, he quit as he was spending too much time on poker to continue working full-time as well.

He met up with Johnny Chan who helped him improve his game and, following a big loss, encouraged Flack to ensure he had a lot of rest before a tournament. He has also been mentored by Huck Seed.

As of 2008, he has won over $4,200,000 in live tournament play.

In his freetime, Flack enjoys listening to 1980's music and playing golf. He has also bowled a perfect 300 game and at one time considered becoming a professional bowler.[citation needed]
