"Some people say that I'm an alcoholic"

Tags: alcohol, horse, problems, Scotty Nguyen, wpt, wsop.
Posted on Friday, March 26, 2010 by "T".

Rumors that Scotty Nguyen has problems with his alcohol use has been circulating on the web for a very long time. That he was really drunk at the televised final table in the 2008 WSOP HORSE-event didn't really help him prove people they were wrong about him and his "so-called" alcohol problems. However, a few days after that Scotty won the HORSE event, he realized that he had done something wrong and therefore he apologized to all his fans in his blog.

Lately, many have claimed that Scotty cant play poker sober. Scotty now wants to prove them wrong as he said in a recent interview that he wont drink anything in the next few poker tournaments and show everyone that he's as good sober as drunk.

"From now on, I will skip alcohol when I play tournaments. I want to show people that I can play poker sober and still win. Some people say that I'm an alcoholic, but I want to show them that I'm not."

Next tournament Scotty will play is in the World Poker Tour (WPT) at Bellagio in Las Vegas.

"Im really looking forward to the next tournament and sipping on my alcohol-free beer."

Guess hes been playing drunk so long he cant think clear with sober head Big Smile. Ihave never really had any interest to Scottys profile and results, but sure will check it out now.
 Chartoule3/26/2010 6:06:30 PM GMT
When some many people say some thing... Some of them see Scott playing drunk?
If he do that, well, maybe he must go to an alcoholism-clinic.
 B1gfoot3/26/2010 6:25:33 PM GMT
To the tune of spacecowboy...

Some people say that I'm an alcoholic
Some people think I`m the Prince of HORES.
Some people call me Thuan
Cause I speak of the pompitous of baby.

Nothing to prove in my books, GL Scotty.

I couldnt care less what he says ...

What loads of us like to play poker whilst having a drink. Even if some of us like to have a game whilst drunk thats no shame! Poker is a game, some people have the skill and attitude to make money from it but its still just a game of cards. If it wasnt for the drunks and donks some of us wouldnt be able to dominate so easy...lol
Any way Scotty is a fine player and im sure he will prove his doubters wrong.
 911insidejob3/26/2010 11:43:57 PM GMT
meh I guess if you're aloud to play drunk and it seems to help his game Aww crap!
 ILI_0023/27/2010 2:38:53 AM GMT
I've seen this player a lot of times on tv poker and he was almost always smiling... Always nice to the others, full of positive energy... cracking a few jokes here and there.. he wasn't giving the impression of a man being drunk, but rather of someone in a very good mood. I wish more players were like him... Go Scotty, go!
 RMBKK3/27/2010 11:44:19 AM GMT
Hahaha, scotty IS an alcoholic... Love the youtube-clip of the HORSE-tourney where he's so friggin drunk and pissed off lol Big Smile

 ierons3/27/2010 10:37:22 PM GMT
Scotty gives alcohol a bad name. This is scottys problem not the alcohol.Most ppl can drink a skinful and still behave, but u have to know urself and what u are about.I am surprised the kiddo didn't pop him one he thoroughly deserved. "Love for the game not the ppl"
 valerica1233/28/2010 2:44:47 PM GMT

 Calmplay3/28/2010 3:51:04 PM GMT
No doubt Scotty can win a big tourney by plying sober, yes a someone said above when he drinks while playing, he make some brave decisions which are often the right ones...

So better not bluffing a player which is drinking while playing... Smile
 joulukinkku3/28/2010 4:26:06 PM GMT
I try to avoid drinking alcohol while playing poker but today I could make a exception and bust couple of beers before entering FullTiltPoker Big Smile Hope to see ya on the tables tonight! Heart

Workday tomorrow Aww crap! So I have to relax before the 5days of working hell. Worship
 MuradMurad3/28/2010 7:14:53 PM GMT

 BBU3/29/2010 5:53:01 PM GMT
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL THIS IS FUNNY and I can't see what's wrong with drinking Big Smile
 SuperNoob3/30/2010 9:27:39 AM GMT
well this just the type of comment expected from an alcoholic who is not ready to accept the fact that he is alcoholic, but lets see if he manages to remain sober or not
 jporp3/30/2010 1:40:15 PM GMT
If he is good playing drunk i think he need to continue playing drunk. lol
