Richard Seymour raises to 50,000 in the hijack before WPT Champions Club member Aaron Mermelstein three-bets the button to 150,000. With the action on Chad Eveslage (pictured) in the big blind, he four-bets to 420,000.

Seymour uses a time extension chip and then folds, but Mermelstein calls as the dealer spreads the Heart 2Heart 9Club 7 flop.

Eveslage uses a time extension chip and then announces he is all in for 880,000.

Mermelstein starts muttering to himself before using a total of four time extension chips. On the verge of having to use his fifth, Mermelstein calls.

The Spade 3 completes the board on the river, and Eveslage doubles into the overwhelming chip lead.
