Merson's Five-Bet Shove Gets Through

On the final hand before the break at the feature table, the player in Seat 1 opened to 1,200 from under the gun. Bill Perkins called from the cutoff, as did the player on the button, and action folded to Greg Merson who three-bet to 6,000 from the big blind.

Back on the original raiser, he four-bet to 13,200, prompting folds from Perkins (who accidentally flipped over the {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}) and the button. Merson then moved all in and counted down his stack which totaled 25,000. Seat 1 thought it over for about a minute before releasing, and Merson took down a big pot without even seeing a flop.
