Old news…but…very funny involving poker pros Scotty Nguyen, Gavin Smith and Mike Matusow.
I just found this video interview of Scotty Nguyen on Wicked Chops Poker. Footage from July 7, 2009 during the 2009 WSOP. Standing with Gavin Smith, Scotty Nguyen tells the story of how his car was hit when he was driving home after his first day playing the 2009 WSOP 10K event.
Poker pro Mike Matusow received a text and a phone call at the same time. Distracted, his foot came off the brake, and hit another car. Yep, Scotty Nguyen’s ($150K) Jaguar!
I was thinking that Mike could be the new poster child for Oprah’s No Phone Zone campaign since he so candidly proved Oprah’s point about distracted driving. On second thought, Mike wouldn’t measure up…Oprah is focusing on tragedies to prove her point, and in the Matusow-Nguyen case, no one was hurt and both Mike and Scotty seem cool about it.
Watch Gavin, Scotty and Mike each tell their perspective on what happened. Learn how easy going these guys are, and how paying your insurance bill – even just 2 days late – can bite you in the ass later on!
