Greg Merson, pictured in a different event.

Greg Merson just got it all in with {a-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a nut flush/gutshot combo draw on a {j-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop. He rivered a spade to beat the weaker flush of his opponent.

Shortly thereafter, he got it all in with {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} the same opponent, who held {a-}{k-}{k-}{x-}. The river brought a diamond flush for Merson's opponent, but it also put three tens on the board, so Merson's full house took the pot.

"That's how you win a tournament," Merson said. "Go all in and win."
