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.

While McBride contemplates what to do, Scotty says the immortal words he's now known for:

:You call, it gonna be all over baby."

McBride must have thought that Scotty's speech meant weakness because he didn't waste much time saying "I call. I play the board."

Scotty showed Jd-9c for a better full house and was poker's newest world champion.

Check out the video below of Scotty's historic win:
