- “I started out today with 7,600 in chips and I finished the day with 134,500 baby. I look forward to play tomorrow. It feels so good!

 

- “The last several weeks I have played some good poker but luck has not been on my side.” Scotty is on 12th place in the chip count and is one of the most experienced players in the field.

Scotty Nguyen: My view on the book, Black Friday and WSOP

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Scotty Nguyen eyes a long and successful WSOP tournament in Las Vegas. The World Champion and Expekt.com poker ambassador also reveals that he will write a tell all book about his dramatic life:

 

 

- The book is definitely something I want to do, and something I will do, Scotty Nguyen tells us at Expekt.com.

 

 

Scotty Nguyen is one of the most respected and famous pros on the poker circuit and Expekt.com had a chat with the poker legend between the tournaments during WSOP, where the main event starts on July 7.

 

 

What will be your goals and tactics in WSOP?

- My goals for the WSOP are to do very well this year. I’m looking forward to all the opportunities I have before me to continue my consistent record. This is the tournament we all look forward to the most every year baby!

 

 

What is your view on Black Friday?

- Black Friday was good and bad baby! It was good because everything needs to become legal and regulated to keep people from getting hurt by cheating or other bad things. It was bad because so many people here in the U.S. have money that is tied up, or they have used the online gaming to be able to support their families during the economic hardships, and now they don’t have that you know baby!

 

 

How has the spring been poker wise?

- So far this year, poker has been good and bad for me baby! I’m glad I won the 1k at Bellagio baby, but I wish I would do better in other events. Don’t worry baby, there’s lots of opportunity ahead of me baby!

 

 

How are the family and kids?

- Everyone is good. The kids are getting bigger, the cats and monkeys are doing well, my wife she is doing well too. It’s all good at home baby!

 

How long will you continue to play?

- I don’t know how long I will continue to play. Poker is all I know and I don’t know that I could “retire” and not play, you know baby that would be very hard for me to do when that’s all I know baby!

 

 

Will there be a blockbuster movie about your life in the future?

- I don’t know if there ever would be a movie about me and my life baby! I would be honoured if one was made, who wouldn’t be baby! lol baby!

 

 

How are the plans to write a book going?

- The book is definitely something I want to do, and something I will do. Right now there have been some major book store chains with financial problems, so a lot is riding on how they come out of it. It’s no good to do a book if there’s not a place to physically sell it you know baby

 

 

- I would like to wish everyone the best World Series this year baby! I hope everyone’s doing well and is healthy baby!
