Men "The Master" Ngyuen came to the United States in 1978 under political asylum from Vietnam and became an American citizen in 1986. He would take trips to Las Vegas every weekend and lose hundreds each trip but eventually mastered poker and won his first tournament in 1987. As a professional Nguyen has over 120 in the money finishes and has won more than 75 tournaments, culminating in six World Series of Poker bracelets. His nickname came from a student who recognized Nguyen's ability to coach young players into solid professionals. Nguyen won the prestigious CardPlayer Player of the Year award four times in 1997, 2001, 2003, and 2005.
