Henderson resident Scotty Nguyen -- whose signature phrases range from "all-in, baby" to "Michelob, baby" to just about anything else "baby" -- outlasted a field of 327 players to win the Gold Strike World Poker Open late Monday night, the latest stop on the lucrative made-for-TV World Poker Tour.
After collecting the event's top prize of $969,421, Nguyen (pronounced "win") called his victory the second most significant in his career as a poker pro, behind only his 1998 World Series of Poker championship event title at Binion's in downtown Las Vegas.
