Scott Davies Prepared For "Global Melting Pot" At World Series Of Poker

Scott Davies Has Played Around The World Since His WSOP APAC Main Event Win Last Year


Scott Davies
Scott Davies has been on an action-packed ride around the world since taking down the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific $10,000 AUD main event in October of 2014. That score, the largest of his career, earned him $744,781 and the bankroll to play some larger tournaments and games across the map. Since then Davies has tallied tournament cashes at the Aussie Millions and at World Poker Tour events in Canada and Amsterdam. To date Davies has upwards of $1.3 million in live tournament cashes.

Card Player caught up with Davies at the 2015 World Series of Poker to talk about his travel on the tournament circuit and his thoughts on the summer series.

Diana Cox: You’ve been pretty busy since your WSOP APAC main event win, tell me what’s been going on in that time.

Scott Davies: I’ve been traveling around, really trying to enjoy everything. The increased bankroll has given me a lot more freedom to travel the world, so since then I’ve done an around the world trip to the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, went to a WSOP Circuit event in North Carolina and a couple trips to Macau. It’s really been a great time.

DC: Has playing in all those different spots around the world set you up nicely for the WSOP where you will be playing with players from all over the world?

SD: Yeah, it’s really interesting because everywhere you go the player pool is a little bit different and people play a little bit differently, so I’ve really gotten used to adjusting to different playing styles. The World Series of Poker is really the global melting pot and I think one of the most important things to do here is to be able to adjust to the different player types within the pool.

DC: Where have you found players are the most different style-wise from players in the United States?

SD: It’s hard to really say but I definitely think in European players are much more aggressive and it’s definitely harder to shake people. They are a lot stickier. I find in Asia the players tend to be a little bit more willing to gamble and maybe sometimes things just don’t even make sense, but it’s because they are not supposed to make sense.
