Spotlight on: Scotty Nguyen

By September 19, 2007

Scotty Nguyen ESPN continues showing the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event on TV, and I learned something sad and touching about one of my favorite players to watch, Scotty Nguyen, last night. After winning the WSOP Main Event in 1998, his brother died in an accident in his hometown in Vietnam the very next day. Apparently he was driving his moped around, telling everyone the good news when he was hit by a car. I had never known Nguyen had such a tragic story. It got me a little teary -- what an awful thing it must be to connect winning the biggest tournament in poker with your brother's death. Poor Scotty.
