No-Limit Hold'em

Eli Elezra raised to 800 from the second position and Phil Hellmuth called from the big blind.

"It's only fair that I win this hand," Hellmuth said, adding that Elezra had already been lucky.

The flop fell {j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} and Hellmuth check-called 1,000. Then he called another 3,500 on the {4-Hearts} turn.

The river was the {7-Spades} and Hellmuth led out 4,400. Elezra paused for a moment.

"I flopped a set, Phil," Elezra said and then he threw the 4,400 across the table so the chips landed in front of Hellmuth.

Hellmuth showed {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for a straight and the table started to laugh.

Elezra shook his head and mumbled something. "But this is Phil, so it's okay. Nice hand," he laughed.

"How do these guys do it? Power of positivity," Danny Noam observed.
