Phil "Unabomber" Laak

Can someone tell me what the sudden interest in Phil Laak is? Yesterday I received almost 200 hits on one of the posts on my forum from people searching for Phil Laak? I don’t think I’ve gotten that many hits before on the whole forum combined. Did I miss something? I see that he came in second in the WSOP $2500 Pot Limit event, but I can’t imagine that causing people to suddenly start stalking him online.

The only other thing I can think of is that he is dating Jennifer Tilly who just won the Women’s $1000 Holdem Event. Maybe people are searching for him in hopes that it will lead to some nude pictures of Jennifer Tilly. While I applaud the effort and creativity, I don’t think that approach will be very successful. Maybe I should try it just to make sure.

Do you like how I worked the terms “Phil Unabomber Laak” and “nude pictures of Jennifer Tilly” into this post? That’s sure to increase the hit count.

Speaking of Tilly, was anyone else surprised that she won that event? I must have the wrong impression of her. I always think of her as staring in ditzy roles, and I’m still seeing commercials for that stupid “Bride of Chucky” movie, so I always thought of her as being not that bright. Maybe no else gave her much credit and she was able to use that against them. From what I have heard, she is actually a pretty good player, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her play. I guess winning a 600 person tournament for a WSOP bracelet takes a decent amount of skill.

Anyway if your search for Phil Laak, or Nude Jennifer Tilly brought you here, you’re out of luck. There’s no useful info on Laak and unfortunately no pictures of Tilly. Try again.

Hi I actually searched for the "Unabomber" because I too found it intriguing that Tilly would win a poker tournament and has only been playing for a year. She says she owes it to the "Unabomber" and I was curious what this guy was all about. He must be good at those "tips" he's given her because Tilly emulates her movie characters pretty much to the T.
