In November 2016, Qui Nguyen created a sensation when he destroyed the final table of the WSOP Main Event and walked away with the coveted gold bracelet as well as $8 million. Many of the experienced professionals commentating for TV simply couldn’t understand his play. Antonio Esfandiari, who has won over $27 million in live play, commented, “I couldn’t get a read on Qui Nguyen if my life depended on it.”

From Vietnam to Vegas tells the complete story behind Qui’s magnificent achievement. In this book Qui:

  • reviews over 100 key hands from his historic victory at the WSOP Final Table
  • provides an in-depth analysis of his thought process on each hand
  • explains the logic behind all his decisions
  • relates the story of his life, from his early struggles in Vietnam through to his transition to a poker professional in Las Vegas.

Qui remarks, “The truth is, there isn’t a person reading this book who can’t achieve all their poker dreams with enough hard work. I know this to be true, because it happened to me.”

The book also includes commentary from Steve Blay, founder of and Qui Nguyen’s personal poker advisor at the final table. Blay’s commentary often analyzes the mathematical basis behind Qui’s decisions, and discusses practical ways to apply it to your own poker game.
