Scotty Nguyen Biography

Scotty Nguyen
  • 5 WSOP Bracelets
    1998 WSOP Europe Main Event Champion
    2008 World Championship H.O.R.S.E. Champion
  • Over $11 Million in Career Tournament Earnings

Scotty Nguyen was born in Vietnam and came to America at the age of fourteen. He was expelled from school for spending too much time in underground poker games.

Throughout his career, Scotty has consistently found himself on top of the poker world for many consecutive year’s. With accumulating over $11,250,000.00 (USD) in live tournament winnings, and 47 1st place finishes under his belt, Scotty has cashed in over 250 live tournaments, holds 5 W.S.O.P. bracelets, with 39 W.S.O.P. cashes and 18 W.S.O.P. final table appearances, along with 3 W.P.T. Bracelets, 16 W.P.T. cashes, and 8 W.P.T. final table appearances.

Scotty holds the the world’s most coveted titles in poker; the 1998 Main Event W.S.O.P. Champion title, 2006 W.P.T. Champion title, 2008 W.S.O.P. $50k H.O.R.S.E. Champion title, and the 2009 W.S.O.P. $10k H.O.R.S.E. Champion title. Scotty’s 1998 W.S.O.P. Main Event final table was the first in WSOP history to have the final table start with 5 players instead of the traditional 6, due to Scotty knocking out 6th and 7th place finishers in one hand the day before. He is also the first in W.P.T. history to win a tournament in one hand (2006). Scotty is also the only W.S.O.P. Main Event Champion (1998) to have won the coveted W.S.O.P. $50k H.O.R.S.E Event (2008). His 1998 W.S.O.P. winning hand led to be one of the most memorable poker phrases of all time when a full house was dealt on the table, and Scotty told his opponent, Kevin McBride, “You call, it’s gonna be all over, baby!”, McBride called, saying, “I call, I play the board.” only to find out Scotty was holding a bigger full house with JD9C for the win. Scotty has also coined the phrase, “that’s poker, baby!”
