Scotty Nguyen, who won the main event title in 1998 and the $50,000 HORSE World Championship in 2008, had a hectic May when he welcomed the Expekt.com winners in Scotty’s Boot Camp in Las Vegas.
- It was great to meet the winners from Expekt.com and talk poker and have some fun time showing them my hometown. I hope to make them proud during the main event.
Scotty also nearly made the final table of the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event, finishing in 11th place out of a field of 6,358 and earning $476,926. He is as always one of the favorites ahead of the long and challenging main event.
Will you do anything different compared to last year’s?
- Nothing different baby! Just play my game baby!
Is the main event the big goal for you this year?
- Of course baby! Every year it is baby!
How would you look back at the year so far, in terms of result?
- So far a decent year baby! I also work for better baby!
How do you look back at the WSOP so far for you own sake in terms of result and play?
- I played good, but ran into a lot of bad luck baby! That’s poker baby!
How do you use your own success earlier in the main event at the table?
- It is always good to have that in the back-pocket baby!
