“You call, gonna be all over baby!” With these famous words, Scotty Nguyen became a legend as Kevin McBride made the call for all his chips and proved Scotty’s words true.

Scotty is a Vietnamese-American poker player who picked up the game of poker after coming to the United States. Scotty struggled at first, losing his entire bankroll, and so took a job as a poker dealer. He would soon return to the poker tables as a winning player.

On the final hand the board ran out a full house with 8-9-9-8-8. Scotty immediately moved all-in and uttered his famous line. Kevin McBride said “I call, I play the board” and it was indeed all over. Scotty flipped over a nine for the better full house to win the WSOP bracelet and the $1 million grand prize.
