Hmmm offcourse scotty never stops...

Btw do you know the story bout scotty allmost had to eat his brother?

Here it is from an other poker site but it was also on poker after dark:

Scotty Nguyen was born on October 28, 1962 in Nha Trang, Vietnam. At the age of 14, and encouraged by his family, Scotty boarded a boat for Thailand with the ultimate goal of reaching the United States. During an episode of Poker After Dark, Scotty explained his experience to his tablemates. According to Scotty, he and his fellow passengers were chased by the Communist police and ended up losing their way. They had only taken enough water, food, and fuel to last two days, just enough for a trip from Vietnam to Thailand. On the fourth or fifth day, they ran out of fuel and drifted aimlessly at sea. Scotty stated that boats would come by but refused to take anyone on board because of a fear that the refugees may be pirates. However, the boats would occasionally throw food overboard, which required Scotty and his fellow passengers to swim in shark-infested waters retrieve. During their twenty-second day at sea, food had run out and the passengers began making plans to eat Scotty's 12 year-old brother, who had fallen extremely ill; luckily, the following day a passing ship rescued Scotty and the other passengers and any plans concerning Scotty's brother never came to fruition.

Scotty won't retire - what else is he gonna do and he loves the attention too much.

He's probably just had a bad couple of months and over reacted to it or the drinks been getting the better of him.

As long as he doesn't act like he did at last years Horse WSOP event I'd be sad to see him go - but he won't.

He may just take a 6 month break - that way he can get a load of attention when he says "goodbye" and then a load more when he makes a comeback.

He has to win 2 tounaments or make the final 3 on the main event if he wants to win more than 4 milions. I bet he will be drunk and wont make it.
