The bluff is arguably one of the most exciting and most unpredictable actions in poker. Trying to figure out when to bluff, how to bluff, and who to bluff is difficult enough. Then you need to pull the trigger and hope that your calculations were correct.

Throughout the year, PokerGO has featured some of 2017’s biggest events and time and time again, during the World Series of Poker, Poker Masters, and Poker After Dark, the world’s best players calculations were correct. As part of PokerGO’s end of year features, Best of 2017: Bluffs compiles the top-five bluffs from 2017.

Phil Hellmuth was the victim in two featured hands, but he wasn’t the only poker legend that was put to the test this year. Jason Mercier found himself in a tough spot against Ryan Fee in the WSOP’s $10,000 Heads Up Championship and WSOP Main Event champion Scott Blumstein used a big bluff to vault himself into poker’s history books.

Subscribe now to relive the year’s best bluffs and stay tuned to PokerGO for more Best of 2017 features throughout the rest of the week.
