Por Onde Andam? - Scotty Nguyen

Compartilhe
Scotty Nguyen é um dos maiores jogadores de poker de todos os tempos e também um dos mais conhecidos. Coincidência? Eu acho que não. Nguyen teve um início humilde, mas não demorou muito até que ele estivesse no topo, ou próximo ao topo, em cada grande torneio que existia. Sua frase “that’s poker baby!” em resposta a uma bad beat, sofrida ou aplicada, pode ser ouvida milhares de vezes por dia, desde jogos valendo centavos até nas maiores mesas de poker do mundo. Não deixe a sempre presente garrafa de cerveja te enganar, Nguyen tem uma das mentes mais brilhantes do jogo, e se você tiver alguma fraqueza, ele irá perceber cedo ou tarde.

Thuan Nguyen nasceu como o primeiro de 13 irmãos em sua família no Vietnã, em Outubro de 1962. Mesmo muito novo Nguyen sabia que ele não cresceria em seu país, e já fazia planos para sair de lá assim que fosse possível. Aos 11 anos, ele viajou do Vietnã para Taiwan. Dos 11 aos 13 anos ele passou a maior parte do tempo fazendo trabalhos manuais para conseguir algum dinheiro para quando conseguisse a oportunidade de viajar para os EUA. Aos 14 anos de idade ele pôde localizar uma família na América que era chamada de “Família Patrocinadora”, já que a família teria que observar Nguyen até que ele tivesse condições de seguir sozinho.

Sua primeira parada nos EUA foi em Chicago, mas assim que chegou Nguyen sabia que Chicago era uma cidade muito fria para ele, e ele logo estava procurando por outra família em uma parte mais quente do país. Ele conseguiu outra família na Califórnia.

Nguyen começou na escola assim que chegou à Califórnia, mas não ficaria muito. Durante os primeiros dias ele conheceu um jogo que mudaria sua vida para sempre, o poker. Por causa do seu novo amor pelo poker, ele não se interessava por nada que os professores ensinavam, e freqüentemente ia para o fundo da sala, ou em alguma sala desocupada para organizar um jogo de poker com os outros estudantes. Após muitas suspensões e repreensões dos professores, Nguyen foi expulso da escola. Previsivelmente, ele não se aborreceu.

Como criança no Vietnã ele sempre sonhara com um lugar dos sonhos que ele só via nos filmes – Las Vegas. Sem escola para freqüentar, sua família disse que ele estava livre para sair, e por volta de 16 anos ele conseguiu um emprego no Harrah’s Casino em Las Vegas. Ele não estava vivendo a vida com a qual sonhara, mas estava finalmente em Vegas. O gerente do Harrah’s na época não conseguia pronunciar Thuan, e começou o chamar de Scotty. Após limpar as mesas por um tempo foi pedido a Nguyen que ele começasse trabalhar como dealer.

Nguyen não encarava isso apenas como um trabalho. Ele viu como uma oportunidade de melhorar o seu jogo ao observar os padrões e reações dos jogadores na mesa. Quando Scotty guardou dinheiro suficiente, ele começou participar de alguns torneios de buy-ins pequenos. Como a maioria dos profissionais ele teve alguns obstáculos durante o caminho, e retornava com freqüência para o trabalho como dealer para fazer mais dinheiro e tentar os torneios novamente.

No início dos anos 90, Nguyen começou a se sentar às mesas de poker com mais freqüência. Entre Novembro de 1991 e Agosto de 1994, Nguyen se classificou em 10 torneios com buy-ins pequenos, de $300 ou menos. Mesmo no início de sua carreira no poker Nguyen mostrou suas habilidades em todos os tipos de jogo de poker. Destes 10 torneios que ele chegou à premiação, as variantes foram Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Hold’em, Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, e No Limit Hold’em. Embora ele tenha ganhado cerca de $65.000 nestes 10 torneios, a experiência e o aprendizado valeram mais que o dinheiro, já que os grandes prêmios estavam começando.

Após o sucesso nos torneios de buy-in baixo, Nguyen estava pronto para jogar nas grandes ligas, sendo a mais notável a World Series of Poker. Seu primeiro dos 36 prêmios na WSOP veio no Evento de $2.500 Limit Hold’em em 1995, quando ele terminou na 13ª colocação e ganhou $4.650. Ele também chegou no evento de Limit Hold’em do ano seguinte, mas o próximo ano traria grandes coisas ara Nguyen.

Em 1997, ganhou seu primeiro bracelete da WSOP no Evento de $2.000 Omaha H/L, ganhando $156.000. Enquanto este evento era claramente um grande prêmio em sua vida, um evento do qual ele não fazia parte o inspirou ainda mais. Foi neste ano que Stuey “The Kid” Ungar, com dívidas e batalhando contra o vício nas drogas, veio do nada e ganhou o Main Event da WSOP. Nguyen assistiu admirado, dizendo a si mesmo que ganharia o Main Event. Nguyen até mesmo começou a carregar uma revista com Ungar na capa celebrando sua vitória, para se lembrar de seu objetivo. Ele não teria que esperar por muito tempo.

No ano seguinte, Nguyen não só não só levou o mais cobiçado prêmio no poker, levando um milhão de dólares, mas também cunhou mais uma frase que se tornaria uma das mais famosas. No heads-up contra Kevin McBride, a mesa mostrava um full house (9-9-8-8-8). Nguyen colocou McBride em all-in. McBride estava visivelmente chateado com o rumo daquela mão. Nguyen então soltou as famosas palavras: “You call, gonna be all over baby.” McBride pagou e disse que estava jogando o bordo. Nguyen abriu o 9, que o dava um full house maior e o título mais cobiçado da World Series of Poker.

Nguyen continuou com o sucesso nas mesas de poker, ganhando ainda outros 3 braceletes, o que o deixa com 5 no total. Mais recentemente ele fez história quando levou o evento de H.O.R.S.E. de $50.000 de buy-in na WSOP 2008. Com esta vitória ele se tornou o primeiro jogador na história a ganhar o Main Event e o Evento de H.O.R.S.E.

Apesar de seu sucesso recente, o Main Event da WSOP 2007 tem sido chamado de o torneio que “escapou”. Com 18 jogadores restantes Nguyen tinha uma quantidade razoável de fichas e liderava um Field com jogadores desconhecidos. Muitas pessoas acreditavam que Nguyen teria uma grande vantagem sobre os oponentes na mesa final, devida a sua experiência e agressividade. No entanto, ele não teve a chance de jogar a mesa final, pois uma série de tentativas de blefe deu errada, e uma bad beat ou duas, ele foi eliminado em 11º lugar. Desde o “boom” da internet, isso foi o mais perto que um jogador conhecido chegou de vencer o Main Event.

Nguyen não permitiu que isso o abalasse, pois entre o 11º lugar no Main Event e o título do H.O.R.S.E. em 2008, ele chegou aos prêmios em 11 grandes eventos ao redor do mundo. Nguyen diz que nenhum outro jogador já ganhou mais torneios de Omaha quanto ele. Com o catálogo de resultados em torneios sendo uma invenção relativamente nova, é difícil dizer se isso é verdadeiro. No entanto, nos últimos tempos, isso é certamente a verdade, pois ele tem 13 títulos em campeonatos de Omaha, e cerca de uma dúzia de mesas finais.

Nguyen é conhecido nos grandes jogos a dinheiro em Las Vegas, mas recentemente anunciou que irá se concentrar principalmente em grandes torneios, pois ele sente que este é o maior teste para ele. Se ele sente como um teste jogar contra pessoas em torneios, imagine o sentimento de sues oponentes quando ele chega e se senta à mesa. Não é um teste, é uma emergência.
