Phil "Unabomber" Laak's Poker History

Phil Laak is a relative newcomer to the pro poker scene. He earned his nickname "Unabomber" for his habit of playing in a hooded sweatshirt cinched up tight, and sunglasses. Phil has had a variety of past jobs, including being a repo man. He legally stole cars and said it was a bit dangerous and somewhat unstable. He also used to broker sports bets. Aside from being a poker player, he is a part time stock market speculator and single family home real estate investor. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. His appearances on the World Poker Tour have made him one of the most popular players on the circuit, and led to him landing the job as host of E! Hollywood Holdem.
