Scotty Nguyen Takes Down WPT LA Classic H.O.R.S.E.
It was all over, Baby, for the 96-player field, as top pro, and owner of the best mullet in town, Scotty Nguyen, took down the $10,000 HORSE Championship at the WPT LA Classic.
The always entertaining Nguyen takes home $343,993 for his troubles, and it was no mean feat, Scotty besting a final table that included Jeff Madsen, Amnon Filippi and Kenny Tran. Chino Rheem, who celebrated his first WPT win back in December, came 2nd for just shy of $200,000.
The $10,000 HORSE event is one of a slew of events at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, and the Classic culminates with a $25,000 NLHE event, kicking off on February 28th.
