Scotty Nguyen

Scotty Nguyen was born in Vietnam in 1962. From 2000 to 2005 he finished in the money in more than 100 events. He won the 1998 World Series of Poker main event and has 4 WSOP bracelets to his name.

Flashy, aggressive and outlandish are just a few ways that Scotty can be described. He came over to the US in 1979 and began as a dealer, from this he had the opportunity to study the play of some great players His trademark at the table is his extreme confidence, and nobody has so much self belief as Scotty.

On the final hand of the WSOP in 1998 a full house was dealt on the table (9-9-8-8-8) Nguygen actually held a better full house to take the title. Unfortunately the next day lost one of his brothers; he was hit by a car back home in Vietnam. For this reason Scotty does not wear his 1998 WSOP championship bracelet.

As of 2007, his total live tournament winnings exceed $7,500,000
