Scott Montgomery Bio

Scott Montgomery has only been playing poker professionally for a short period of time, starting online at sites like UltimateBet. During college he studied mathematics, but he never fell back on his education for his online poker playing. When he was Japan teaching English he learned how to play poker and he is now considered of the most stringent players in the poker circuit. Proof of this is the fact that Montgomery has wrapped most of his winnings - $406,585 in live earnings to date – into long-term investments. As a matter of fact, he has even stated the most expensive purchase he has made since winning close to $300k in February 2008 was a new phone. Considered the form player of the nine heading to the WSOP Main Event, he used the winnings he earned by finishing 4th at the Bellagio’s $3,000 Cup to buy into the World Series of Poker.
