    (October 28, 1962- )
    Born in Nha Trang, Viet Nam
    Birth name was Thuan B. Nguyen
    Won five bracelets at the World Series of Poker (WSOP)
    Won the WSOP Main Event (1998)
    He was expelled from school for spending too much time in underground poker games.
    He won over a million dollars gambling from the mid-80 to 90s and lost it all thanks in large part to cocaine and alcohol addictions.
    He owns a couple of pet monkeys.
    He has been called 'the king of bling' for his gold chains and rings.
    During the WSOP H.O.R.S.E. event (2008), he was criticized for scolding and swearing at other players at the final table and yelling 'Where's my fucking cocktail?' at a server.
    He grew up during the Vietnam War (before coming to the US at age 14) and noted, 'I have seen atrocities firsthand that no child should ever have to witness.'
    He said about his brushes with bankruptcy, 'I can go down seven times, but always stand up the eighth.'
    He has never worn his WSOP championship bracelet because the day after his victory, his brother was killed in a car accident in Vietnam.
    He publicly apologized for his behavior at the 2008 WSOP.
    Todd Brunson claimed, 'Scotty truly is a nice guy and a gentleman gambler 99.9 percent of the time. ESPN just caught him during that 0.1 percent when he went freakin’ crazy.'
