My favourite top 5 bluffs from live televised poker

Bonus hand:

This hand was not recorded on video but is very sick:
The hand took place in the first 1million$ buy-in tournament (the 2012 WSOP One drop tournament). Phil Galfond tweeted the following:

Eugene Katchalov said that Mikhail Smirnov did indeed fold quad eights to John Morgan. Katchalov sayed that Tom Dwan had opened and received a call from Smirnov and Morgan before the {J-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} fell. Dwan checked and Smirnov bet. Morgan called and Dwan folded.
The turn was the {8-Spades} and Smirnov bet 200,000. Overhearing a conversation from Smirnov, he said Morgan called within five seconds and looked extremely excited about the hand.
The river completed the board with the {K-Spades} and Smirnov bet 700,000. Morgan raised all in for 3.4 million total and Smirnov tank-folded the {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} face up for all to see.

5th place (5bet bluff with 52 offsuit preflop by Phil Ivey in High Stakes Poker Season 6 Episode 8):


4th place (Brad Booth makes a legendary overbet bluff on Phil Ivey on the flop repping a set. Ivey is then forced to laydown the pocket kings. Awesome read by both players, Ivey nearly called)

3rd place (Barry Greenstein raises with AA UTG, and everyone at the table calls. then the hand starts getting crazy)

2nd place (the hand took place at the ausie millions 2012 250k$ event - Ivey bluffs a recreational player off a set)

1st place (Tom Dwan bluffs Ivey in a 670.000$ pot)




  1. durrrr´s bluff against Ivey was incredible, from the squeeze to the 3 barrel, out of this world

  2. Yes. It is the crazy-est bluff ever imo. The second hand where Ivey makes the chinese guy fold the set on the turn is also incredible.

  3. Iveys in 3 out of five of them lol. Wheres Brad Booth now hehe

  4. Ivey is in 4 out of 5. But one of the times he gets
