Looking for help with a definition

So I'm watching some manner of television poker and one of the bright lights at the table is Phil Hellmuth.  I personally believe him to be an overbloated bag of bile, but that doesn't enter in to this inquiry.

At some point during a hand - perhaps betwixt flop and turn - Hellmuth says "Hold 'Em" sort of declaratively, as if he were pointing something out or indicating some course of action.

I had never heard of the term being used to actually mean anything other than the name of the game. Does anyone know what he meant when he said it in this context?

Until next time, please remember that insofar as it is almost 3:00AM, I have nothing funny to add to the end of my post.
