Scotty Nguyen’s Diving Lesson

by Jeremy

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen any major poker tournament titles from Scotty Nugyen, but that doesn’t mean the man isn’t still alive. In fact, he’s feeling younger than ever according to a new video he put out that shows him diving off a pool waterfall while fully-clothed.

Nguyen begins the video by saying, “I woke up today, and I feel so good. And I told my wife, ‘Honey, I feel so good today, I feel so young.” He proceeds to tell how his wife dared him to do a flip off of the pool waterfall with all of his clothes on if he feels so young.

As for Nguyen’s recent poker tournament results, he hasn’t done anything overly-impressive in the past few years. Of course, his results would be more than enough for the average player since the Vietnam native has earned over $1.4 million in the last three years alone. However, you set the bar pretty high for yourself when you win the 1998 WSOP Main Event ($1 million) and 2008 H.O.R.S.E. Championship ($2 million).

Speaking of the H.O.R.S.E. Championship, this was the event where Scotty Nguyen really put brought down his reputation after a number of drunken rants throughout the tournament. Most of the rants were directed at eventual heads-up opponent Michael Demichele, who didn’t seem to be doing anything too offensive to bring on Nguyen’s tirade. That said, here is a look at the video of this incident:
