"Baby. yeah baby. baby."

Meet Scotty Nguyen, Vietnamese American poker master.

"Yeah baby. I've gotta go buy some shoes," says Scotty.

Alright, well we're going to tell the readers a little about the man while he goes and buys his shoes.

Scotty Nguyen is one of the most active, and winning professional poker players today. Moreover, he's got a catch phrase: Baby. From pokerpages, "Scotty was immortalized in the 1998 World Series of Poker Championship, saying to Kevin McBride: "You call this one, and it's all over, baby!" McBride called, and it was all over. That was Scotty Nguyen's $1,000,000 hand, and second WSOP bracelet."

Sadly, the day after that monster win, Nguyen's brother was hit by a car in Vietnam, and killed. Scotty never wears that particular WSOP bracelet for this reason. But don't worry, he's got others (brothers and bracelets). He has 4 World Series of Poker bracelets. He's finished in the money 34 times, and as of 2007, his total live tournament winnings exceeded $7,500,000. But most of all, he's dead sexy, knows it, and takes breaks from the table because he's said he dislikes taking other people's money. Yeah baby.
