This year Scotty Nguyen is being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame and PokerListings.com has exclusive video footage of WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart calling the Prince of Poker to tell him the good news.
Ty: So, we're about to call Scotty Nguyen and give him the news that he has made the Poker Hall of Fame.
Scotty: What's up Ty?
Ty: Hey Scotty. How are you?
Scotty: What's up baby?
Ty: Okay. So, I wanted to tell you this. The wait for the Poker Hall of Fame is all over baby. Congratulations. You're the inductee.
Scotty: Oh, really? Oh. Thank you so much Ty. That's wonderful news baby. That's just what we work hard for. You know what I mean?
Ty: Doesn't mean you can retire Scotty. We expect a few more bracelets now.
Scotty: No, no, no, no, no. I'm not gonna retire baby. But, you know, it's like you work so hard, you put so much time in, you want to be in the history book, a hall of famer. [inaudible 00:00:55] Later on, just a year from now, grand kids can talk about it. You know what I mean?
Ty: Well, start practicing your speech. We're gonna hear a few words and we know they're gonna be entertaining. Hopefully, from the heart.
Scotty: You got it baby. You got it. You know me. When I talk, it's from my heart baby.
Ty: We know that.
Scotty: You got no worry about that.
Ty: Very excited. It's one of the really cool parts of this job, and it will be at least fun we get to talk to Tom.
