RE: Scotty Nguyen Apology (3)

(Getting closer to) The Real WSOP World

It seems like Otis and Amy and Mike Paulle are right … poker on TV is changing. For better or for worse may still be up for debate, but those of us who have seen the action firsthand seem to be agreeing that what ESPN is doing is better capturing the “reality” of the WSOP … less documentary, more Puck … which only makes sense, delayed final table Survivor and all.

New (to me) from ESPN:

(Did I flat miss this video during the Scotty Nguyen HORSE episodes, or is it only standing out as more relevant in television hindsight?)

Also, btw, big kudos/thanks to ESPN for making their vids embeddable. I think you guys are on to something. Pretty slick … kinda like the other dude’s YouTube montage, only better.

    I believe this video is a preview for tonight’s Main Event episode (Scotty appears in the first hour).

  2. DanM

    I wonder when that was shot. Can’t be certain, but the studio-stage they are interviewing him on seems different than the one set up during the WSOP.

  3. Kevin Mathers

    Also worth noting, as has been discussed here before, no more of the FTP gear.

  4. California Jen

    Kevin, you beat me to it. I was going to note that he was wearing FTP at the HORSE final table but PokerStars gear in this video.

  5. DanM

    So maybe this was shot during the main event? That stage doesn’t look totally unfamiliar.

  6. DanM

    Also not wearing any All In Energy.

    i thought the first step was admitting you have a drinking problem? i think saying something like “i was wasted off my ass and i am sorry my fans had to see me act like an ass, baby.” would better than the shit he said there.

    It was probably filmed during the Main Event, I believe they have a couple of different seats available in that area.
