Every tournament has a fair share of crazy hands. Whether it’s kings beating aces, runner-runner outdraws on the bubble, or an improbable beat as the final table approaches. During the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event, not only were these crazy hands caught on camera, but they were for some of the biggest pots in the tournament in the final few days of play.
The 2010 WSOP Main Event takes center stage on this week’s Top 5 Hands – and what a year for action!
Jonathan Duhamel became the first WSOP Main Event winner for Canada when he topped the 7,319-player field to win over $8.94 million in first-place money. If it wasn’t for two massive hands that vaulted him the up the leaderboard, there easily could have been another player heading home with the Main Event title.

Third-place finisher Joseph Cheong also plays two of the most crazy hands from that year. Unfortunately for Cheong, he was on the losing end for both. Fourth-place finisher Filippo Candio is on the winning end of one of those hands with Cheong, while Matthew Jarvis and Michael Mizrachi play an all-in preflop hand that rides a roller coaster of emotions for both players.
