Top five blow ups on

So far, having pored through the archive, we've discovered clips that show a sort of progression through the tempers and emotions of a poker hand.

First came the bluff. From that the natural consequence of the bad beat. But then what? What follows the bad beat?

The "blow up" of course.


The video below shows what we think are the top five blow ups from, each of them as cringe-worthy as they are entertaining, and good enough to raise eyebrows and (occasionally) lower the tone.

As with other clips we've shared they make for great poker television, although anything that involves the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Tony G typically attracts a good crowd.

Then there are moments featuring the likes of Vanessa Selbst and Ryan D'Angelo, also set to be filed deep into the filing cabinet marked "awkward".

See for yourself in the video below.
