George Abdallah moved all in from the hijack seat, and Bill Perkins called all in for 289,000 from the cutoff.
Perkins' hand held up as the board came , and he doubled to around 658,000 chips. Abdallah fell to 52,000.
The very next hand, Abdallah moved all in from early position, Bill Perkins re-shoved for 653,000 from the hijack seat, and Tobias Reinkemeier called on the button.
Perkins got to his feat as the flop fell , letting out a big sigh when he realized that the jack missed Reinkemeier. The on the turn was another brick, and so too was the on the river.
"PERKY LIVES!!!!" Perkins yelled at the top of his lungs.
"PERKY LIVES!!!!" Antonio Esfandiari shouted back at him from halfway across the room.
"I LOVE YOU ANTONIO!" Perkins yelled.
Phil Laak got in on the action, shouting from the feature table, and Perkins joyfully dragged in the more than 1.4-million chip pot.
