Hellmuth vs. Matusow

Anyone who watched Season 3 of High Stakes Poker is already well aware of Phil Hellmuth's awful reputation as a high stakes no-limit hold'em player. Well deserved or not, Hellmuth's time for revenge was at hand in the inaugural episode of High Stakes Poker Season 4.

The hand in question takes place after the 4:00 minutes mark of the video below. Take note of how Mike Matusow takes it upon himself to rib Hellmuth.

Now watch as Hellmuth gets the last laugh...

Not only did Hellmuth win a big pot: he also collected $500 from each player at the table for having won a hand with the hammer - 72 offsuit.

Sure, Hellmuth can be dick, egotistical, cocky, arrogant...but you've got to give him credit for sticking to his guns and playing his game, night after night, tournament after tournament.
