|One of my favorite poker players is Scotty Nguyen. Once I saw he
made it into the final 27 players I decided to make a poster and cheer
for him. My sign said " Go Scotty". I had a professional
photo taken with him the night the pro's were taking pictures with
the other people on the ship. He was very cordial and such a gentleman.
On the night of the finals, I was there cheering with my sign in
hand. Scotty came over and gave me a big hug on his way up to the
final table as he was being introduced. I was a little sad that
he came in 6th place but was very glad to meet him.
The final evening of the cruise I went to the photo display to
see if I liked anything well enough to buy something, Much to my
surprise, Scotty was also looking at the photo's. I picked up my
picture that had been taken with him and went over and ask him if
he would autograph it for me. He said, " I will not only autograph
it for you, but I will buy it for you, babee". What a thrill
