Every poker tournament always has a fair share of crazy hands. Anything from runner-runner outdraws, massive bluffs, and insane folds. During the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event, thousands of hands were caught on camera, but some were just too good to be forgotten.
The 2011 WSOP Main Event takes center stage on this week’s Top 5 Hands – and what a year for action!
Pius Heinz became the first WSOP Main Event winner from Germany when he topped the 6,865-player field to win over $8.7 million in first-place prize money. Heinz doesn’t make an appearance in this video, but the hands that make the top five happened at crucial points in the tournament.

What’s better than flopping quads? How about flopping quads and having your opponent barrel every street before putting you all in on the river with just king-high? Kings cracked by deuces? It happens. Folding kings preflop? No way! How about six-bet shoving ace-six into aces?
