Greatest Poker Hand: Hall soul crushes Oliver, Van Den Bijgaart makes impossible fold

Have you voted in the hunt for The Greatest Ever Poker Hand in the History of PokerStars? Voting closes tomorrow, 10 June.

There was a lot of talk about about Sami 'Lrslzk' Kelopuro making an anstonishing set laydown in SCOOP recently. If that impressed you then you should probably be giving Joep Van Den Bijgaart your vote from this selection. Reading that you're beaten on a board like that and being able to get the cards into the middle really deserves a standing ovation. One of the most impressive moves you'll ever see in the late stages of a big money tournament. You can see it play out below.

"I can make impossifolds."

But first, Galen Hall makes a spectacular laydown heads up for the PCA title when Chris Oliver rivered a straight. Oliver, who plays at PokerStars under the name 'imdanuts', had been hyper-aggressive throughout making Hall's pass that much harder. Would you just make the crying call?


Galen Hall reads Madman Chris Oliver's shove perfectly


Wow. Just wow.
