There are 724 online poker players with the surname Nguyen? Who would say this strange surname would be so common at the poker tables? This just shows that there are other countries besides USA with online poker tradition. Scotty is from Vietnam, and the others must be from there or close. I think i never visited an online page from Vietnam, but they must have lots of stuff about poker, it can be a good tip to try to look up for this.

Nguyen is a common name in Vietnam I think but still srange to see so many be successful at poker.

Awesome that Esfandiari is in 4th on his own. Now that's something.

I knew Antonia had to place after this year feat of winning the largest pot in poker history. Isn't that incredible? Hansen and Seidel are also right there with the money so none of them areoing bad. be nice to be a soloist in this.

Pretty interesting to see that Nguyen is the most popular name in poker but i also think that come people have this name...

But i have to agree with the post above, Esfandiari it'a a multi million dollar name just by itself, so it's Seidel.

Esfandari is there only because of the won drop. if he hadn't won that he wouldnt even be in the 300-400 top. lucky break for him. you just need to win one of these big prize tournaments and your name will be there. i'm not expecting it too soon Smile

Why?

Is Shane teaching her poker?

Incidentally I don't think that the Nguyen total should be that high. All of Scotty Nguyens' winnings should be under the name Osourne (Ozzy). Smile
