During seven days Scotty and his wife Julie visited five countries starting in Prague, capital of Czech Republic, where the poker world champion made several interviews and played poker with customers. In Warsaw, Poland, Scotty got the golden pin from the Polish Poker Sports Federation as the second person ever and 66 invited players took part in the Scotty Nguyen Cup, among them mega pop star Michail who have sold 12m albums in Poland.

In Riga, Latvia, Scotty joined the Norwegian invasion during the Norwegian Championship tournament and had 48 hectic hours in the Baltic jewel. In Helsinki he almost froze to pieces during a photo-session att Senaten square and later in the evening discovered what we all know already, that the Finns like their beer and poker.

Last stop was Stockholm and classy Grand Hotel were Scotty handed over the trophy to the first ever Freecopp winner, young Tobias who got an evening he will never forget. – I have had a great time and it has been so nice to meet the media and players at, Scotty said with a smile before he and Julie boarded the flight to Las Vegas after seven days of touring Europe.

Scotty’s European tour 2010 – Day 1 Prague

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I understood that I am in an ice-hockey crazy country when national TV high-lighted the NHL results from the night while I was zipping on my black coffee this morning. Viva Las Pragues as Julie, the beloved wife of Scotty Nguyen, puts it.

Scotty is sleeping while Julie is updating Scotty’s Twitter; they had a long, 16 hour flight to Prague from Las Vegas via Atlanta and Frankfurt. Is this the cutest poker couple among the super-stars? I think so. Julie is Scotty’s rock.

Scotty lives and breaths poker, but he also loves sports; when I came to his hotel room Eurosport was on, it was women’s tennis, and I still can recall his long outburst when Andy Murray lost in Wimbledon last summer. As a kid in Vietnam he played football every day and Los Angeles Lakers is his favorite team; Kobe Bryant is his idol. While zapping on TV I see numerous sports-betting and poker ads, so this is a country for Scotty. And it was no surprise when I took a cab, that the driver started to talk about football and ice-hockey before putting in the gear; I showed him a photograph on me and Milan Baros when we met in Barcelona last year, and when I told him I was here with poker world champion Scotty Nguyen he did even bigger eyes.

Scotty will sign some autographs for sure during this European tour which will take him to Warsaw, Riga, Helsinki and Stockholm after Prague. And he will talk about poker, of course, lots of poker, and Scotty’s boot camp that is coming up in May in Las Vegas, only for players.
