It was 1:25am on July 16, 2007, less than a quarter hour after Scotty Nguyen had been eliminated from the Main Event of the 2007 World Series of Poker. Scotty had just completed a fall for the ages; he was third in chips when the field was reduced to eleven, only to be the next player eliminated. With the entire poker world watching, hoping for one of its heroes to thrive, he’d gotten overconfident… cocky. It was the cause of his downfall.
