The 1998 world poker champion needs no introduction to serious poker fans. The Prince of poker has long been one of the games most colorful characters both at and away from the table. Scotty Nguyen has a unmatched style all his own, whether it's his white leather boots, blue-tinted shades, gold necklaces and pendants, incessant chatter, Michelob-guzzling toasts, or relentless aggression when he senses opponents weakness. He's won four WSOP gold bracelets. He's appeared on late night talk shows. He's been in a movie. In short, he's done it all. Nguyen is one of four foreign-born players at the final table. Like rival Giang, Nguyen fled his native Vietnam in 1978. After winning the world championship in 1998, his life became an open book. It seemed, everyone wanted to be seen with, talk to, and party with The Prince. Nguyen has encountered the usual ups and downs of the business and has weathered the storm well. The husband and father of five children now lives in Henderson, NV.
