Scotty Nguyen poker has been a hit in the UK for several years. Known as the queen of online poker, Scotty has racked up more than half a million fans on her Facebook page and more than three hundred thousand registered players in her main poker room.
The truth is that Scotty Nguyen poker is a good example of what poker should be. The people behind Scotty Poker tell me that they do not have any affiliation with the famous WSOP tournament winner, Phil Hellmuth. And I am not aware of any PR leak regarding Scotty’s departure from PokerStars.
That doesn’t mean that Scotty Nguyen poker is without its problems. It’s still a high-tech casino game that’s been designed to take advantage of modern technology. The players are also dealt out cards by a computer, using a software program, with the same kind of rapid response times that you’d expect in a modern poker game.
But, of course, it’s capability and the speed with which it deals is still nothing like the traditional poker games of the past. So, that’s one problem. But there’s also a second issue.
In these modern times, there’s a strong argument that when you play a game of chance, and of course you can certainly be very lucky sometimes, you may as well just go with the flow. You get what you’re dealt, right? So, why keep playing if it’s going to be such a slow game of chance? Why bother to learn how to play?
Well, that was my thinking as I started playing poker. But then I played some tournaments at Scotty’s poker room. And I became convinced that it was worth trying to learn poker. Why?
Well, of course, I’ve always been a “games player”. And I’ve always enjoyed trying to figure out how other people play the game. I think that’s part of the fun of playing poker. But I also like trying to figure out the psychology of someone else.
When you are dealing with some of the most powerful financial institutions in the world, sometimes you have to be a little more astute than others in order to avoid losing your world’s money. Sometimes you have to play your cards right, and sometimes you have to make the cards fall where they may. And that’s an important part of the game.
What’s so interesting is that as we develop our mental skills, we are not just playing against ourselves. We are also playing against the other players around us. And sometimes you have to use their own psychology against them in order to get ahead.
And that’s why I love playing poker with the other professionals at Scotty’s poker room. They tend to be a good reflection of the games that they are playing in their own way. And so we can often learn something about ourselves from the way that they play. And this is why I think that playing poker with other people can be valuable.
So if you want to improve your game, or just learn how to cope with pressure, you could try to play at Scotty’s poker room. You’ll get the opportunity to be the author of your own fortune. And if you want to be the one benefiting from it, it’s a wise move to play poker with others.
That’s the case with Scotty and many other professional poker players out there. Just remember, if you’re going to do something new, you should do it in a setting where you will get the best possible feedback on your abilities.
