Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Watch Out for Scotty, Baby!

It's always fun to keep an eye on former World Champs, which is exactly what we've been doing with 1998 WSOP Main Event winner Scotty Nguyen. In a recent hand, Nguyen bet 475 on a flop of {Q-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. His opponent in the cutoff made the call and it was off to the {7-Diamonds} turn.

This time Nguyen checked, the cutoff bet 750, and Nguyen snap-raised to 4,000. The cutoff made the call only to face a bet of 12,000 from Nguyen on the {4-Spades} river. Perhaps it was the pressure of playing in the "Big One," but the cutoff was clearly distraught. He put both hands on his head and stood from his chair as he wondered what to do.

"Sir, you have to sit down," the dealer informed the player. The player was shaking his head as he took his seat, eventually making the call with his {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}.

"I know that what you have, baby," Nguyen said before showing the winning {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Nguyen is up to 47,000.
