Scotty Nguyen is one of the most recognizable faces in poker and has been for a long time, due in large part to his seemingly ubiquitous presence at every game that is televised as well as some appearances on late night talk shows. Nguyen began his poker career as a teenager, and was soon expelled from his California school because of his absence in classes as he learned poker.
He moved with some friends to Vegas, where he worked as a dealer at Harrah's and watched the pros and learned. In 1982 he began to put the observations to work, and began professional play in Lake Tahoe, winning $150,000 before returning to Vegas and quitting his job.
Nguyen is very open about his life, and admits he's made mistakes; gambling and drugs cost him his first fortune, but recovered and is now a mainstay in poker. He is known for his vocal style of play and for coining the term "that's poker, baby". He is also legendary for his utterance at the 1998 WSOP final table saying to his last opponent "you call, it's gonna be all over baby!". It was.
