"Some people say that I'm an alcoholic"

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."

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.

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.

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
Any way Scotty is a fine player and im sure he will prove his doubters wrong.

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!

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"

"I want to show people i can stay sober and still win" looool, thats sounds like alcohol won his tournaments... i thought it would harm and not help^^

That's what I got out of it..;strange.
Hasn't he played sober for soooo long?

guess so... after a downswing he tried the safe way again Blink Big Smile
 Calmplay28/03/2010 15:51:04 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

 SuperNoob30/03/2010 09:27:39 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
 jporp30/03/2010 13:40:15 GMT
If he is good playing drunk i think he need to continue playing drunk. lol
