Totally unsurprised.

Its a wonder that they hadn't signed him sooner.

Mark my words Surinder's next

Seems to be a strange time to sign him up, unless I've missed him doing something recently.

Don't think he has had a win of note since his GUKPT win last year.

I assume with them signing Richard Ashby, Julian Gardner and now Dave and I predict Ben Grundy asap FTP are going to make another push at the UK market with some top names?

Obviously not saying the Mob are not top names to the UK scene!!!

Any story behind Layne Flack no longer being a red name?

Or is it just one of those things that reached a natural end?

surely the more pros they have, the less of an impact each one will have? I have no idea who half the players in red are, and personally couldn't give a monkey's about playing against them. I think less is more in this case, they should thin out the roster considerably IMO.

Tis good to see FT signing some more good UK players. I know they are good for advertising and generating action on the tables but I don't get why random players queue up just to play with the pros. They are pro players for a reason ie they aren't random donks and I personally I'd rather m鵈ake money than have a story to tell.

Nice one Mr Colclough

Watch the H.O.R.S.E Main Event on Pokertube and its pretty self explanatory.

Basically Flack made a tit of himself hanging onto the balls of and encouraging a drunk Scotty Ngueyen(spelling Rolling Eyes )while he was also disgracing himself.

This included Flack running to the table during play to give Scotty "sum luv" while 3 handed when no other than a rightly pissed off Erick Lindgren was at the table 3 handed.Upon his exit,Lindgren left Flack hanging dry for a "high-5" and announced that somedays you just cant beat a drunk Mr. Green

Even tho if given a lot of detail,its a must watch if you havent seen it,Scotty certainly showed his true colours,and Flack just a (presumably alos drunken) little hanger-on encouraging him.
