When Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond decided to create an online poker training site he was well aware that he needed a competent, successful, low-limit poker coach to balance the site’s training videos. After plenty of research and interviews he decided on Don Nguyen, and the decision has proven to be yet another genius move by Galfond.
But don’t be mistaken in thinking that Nguyen is merely a low-limit grinder, SoCalQuest was able to put himself through UCLA –while living a very nice lifestyle—by playing online poker, and now the college grad has decided to put any career plans on ice while he focuses on tearing up the poker scene.
Nguyen was born in Des Moines, Iowa and attended UCLA. The now 22 year-old Nguyen plans to continue to grow as a poker player, and has begun to branch out into the live poker tournament scene in 2010. Nguyen won the $335 No Limit Holdem event at the Commerce Holdem Series, pocketing $11,680.
PokerTableRatings.com has tracked Nguyen’s success at the online poker tables in a variety of games and stakes, and shows him with a massive $150,000 in profits from January 2009 through May 2010.Overall Nguyen has a win-rate of nearly 5BB/100! Not to mention the $20,000+ in rakeback he has been able to rack up in that time period. Nguyen has accomplished this by playing No Limit Holdem and PLO between stakes of $.50/$1 and $3/$6.
Nguyen has contributed 95 videos to BlueFire poker as of November 2010, with the vast majority dealing with micro and small-stakes games. However, Nguyen has also produced some videos where he takes on the likes of Daniel “jungleman12” Cates in a heads-up PLO match!
Another aspect of SoCalQuests poker video training are his member reviews. Nguyen voices over videos from BlueFire Poker members helping them see some of the mistakes they may have made during the session; where their strategic thinking may be off a bit; and plugging some previously unknown leaks in their game. These videos are highly popular on Blue Fire Poker.
One of the most highly rated poker videos from SoCalQuest is the “Hole Cards Revealed” series where Nguyen replays a session of No Limit Holdem or PLO with players Hole Cards exposed throughout the hand!
