Pulling off a sick bluff on a nationally televised poker show is like "Mozgoving" a player on The NBA on TNT. Or making a one-handed touchdown catch on Monday Night Football. Or hitting a walk-off home run on Sunday Night Baseball. Poker players are far removed from professional athletes physically, but when the prime-time lights turn on, the cream often rises to the top. The best players want to perform at the highest level for everyone to see.
The following list contains our 10 favorite bluffs captured on television. Some are from cash games, others are from tournaments, but all left us with our mouths agape and our jaws on the floor.
