The 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event has just completed Day 2 and the remaining players are beginning to seriously contemplate whether they can become poker's next world champion. In this edition of Flashback Friday, we look back to the 1998 WSOP Main Event and the heads-up match between Scotty Nguyen and Kevin McBride. At the river, the board was 9h-9d-8c-8h-8s and Scotty Nguyen moved all-in.

With the Main Event winding down, I though it would be a good time to go back and look at my predictions that I made prior to the WSOP and see how they went: Prediction 1: Phil Hellmuth will get his 12th bracelet.
