I can't seem to understand Zak anymore... *spoilers*

I don't remember he ever saying that he chose Wright just because he won. I do remember him talking about how he sees a person's personality through poker.

Ah yes, that's what I meant, he uses poker to gauge people's personalities. It has been a long time since I played the game so I don't remember everything clearly, but IIRC Kristoph lost a game against Zak and was dismissed after that, and then he played against Wright and Wright won, so he deemed Wright worthy and hired him right?

Yes, but I think he would've neglected Kristoph the job anyway.

Meh, who knows, maybe if Kristoph had won the game he would've been Zak's attorney in that trial. I agree with Wandering_Hero regarding Zak's personality so far, unless some new facts or evidence arise in a sequel Zak will always be a jerk in my book.

After finishing the game I really really really don't understand why Zak wanted to ruin Phoenix's reputation

I think Zak’s an arrogant guy and was really, really bothered by Phoenix beating him in poker…he probably assumed he cheated. So he wanted to “expose” him in the game and obviously went too far.

He’s definitely not a “good guy” but not exactly evil…he’s quite arrogant and maybe even a bit traumatized by events of his wife’s “death” and thought it best to run away from a situation (Trucy’s Mom is similar). He probably figured he wasn’t that great a father anyway and figured Trucy would be better off with someone else. I kinda see him in a grey area. Definitely done bad things and is arrogant and selfish but no so far as to be up there with the true villains of the series.

And yeah, I’m prettys sure Phoenix was chosen because he won at poker.

Himdaisy reuploaded his old stuff and someone has started a thread about Zak being a jerk.

I think you all know what that means

^Haha thanks for linking those, I always get a good laugh from the "Zak is a Jerk" series.

Zak certainly could've prevented several things, had he done things differently. Had he shown Phoenix the diary page, things could've turned out bad as well as good. Think about it from both ways....

Having a paper saying that he inherits the tricks of Magnifi gives him motive to kill the guy - after all, the sooner he's dead, the sooner he can legally do the tricks. Although that guy was bound to die soon anyway....

For another, it could've proven him innocent, but putting all the more emphasis on Valant being a possible suspect. Of course, had Valant just plain said "Magnifi killed himself" the whole thing could've ended much faster and easier.
But then he'd have to confess to tampering with a crime scene.

I dunno what I think of Zak. He barely made much of an impression on me. Although I have to agree with those comicstrips, he sure can be a jerk.

I don't think anyone could understand what was going through Zak's mind. I was about ready to grape-juice-bottle him to the head myself when I realized he was trying to ruin Phoenix's poker gig, which he was using to support the dependent that Zak dumped on him for seven years.

Though my biggest question about Zak was why he even needed an attorney in the first place. He had intended to leave the court room no matter what verdict was handed down, so why bother going through the trouble of hiring an attorney when the court would had assigned one to him?

Probably because he chooses his lawyers based on their personality while playing poker - he saw that Kristoph was an evil sob and was ready to do anything to get him acquitted. But if Zak had been acquitted, suspicion would've gone to Valant and he didn't want that.

And yes, it didn't matter if he used a personal attorney, state-assigned or even represented himself. He just needed to wait to go "Kthxbye!"
