Scott Montgomery (born October 16, 1981) is a poker player from Perth, Ontario, Canada who won his first bracelet at the 2010 World Series of Poker in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Event #36 and was one of the final table players in the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event. He finished in fifth place earning $3,088,012,[1] which was his fourth cash in the 2008 WSOP. He was eliminated by Peter Eastgate after going all in with A 3. Eastgate had pocket sixes. Montgomery got an ace on the flop and another on the turn. Another player, Dennis Phillips, had folded a six, meaning Eastgate could only hit the 6 to win the hand. Eastgate hit his card, giving him a full house and eliminating Montgomery.

Montgomery also has two World Poker Tour cashes, including a fifth place finish at the 2008 L.A. Poker Classic, which earned him $296,860.
