Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

"Perky Is Alive!"


Bill Perkins was all in preflop for 795,000 with the {8-Spades}{8-Hearts} against the {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} for Tom Dwan.

"At least if I lose, I can tell a bad beat story," Perkins said with a smile.

The dealer ran out the {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop and Perkins noticed Dwan had a diamond in his hand. "Holy sh*t, he has diamonds!" he yelled.

The turn was the {10-Hearts} and river the {9-Clubs}, both missing Dwan and giving Perkins the double up.

Perkins jumped out of his chair, hands high in the air and started singing at the top of his lungs. He went over and celebrated with his rail before coming back to his seat to collect the pot. "Perky is alive! Perky is alive!" he chanted when he sat back down.
