Congratulations Scotty Nguyen! "Scotty Baby" took down the "player's championship" at this years WSOP by winning about 2 million playing in a $50k buy in mixed game event (HORSE) against about 150 of the world's best players. Now known as the Chip Reese memorial tournament (named after its first winner and one of the most respected high stakes cash players of all time), the pros view this as "their" championship vs. the 10k No Limit Hold Em open championship, even though anyone can enter. The $50k buy in and the mix of games (Hold Em, Omaha 8/b, Razz, Stud and Stud 8/b) scare even tournament professionals away as only the baddest sharks can survive in this pool. Anyway, I sat down with Scotty about a week before this event kicked off, you can find the interview up tomorrow at: (and archived for you folks that don't check daily...) at
