The action is about 150 hands in, and nearly a quarter of that has been heads-up play. John Sun and Kenneth Baime, the Day 1a and Day 1b chip leaders coming into Day 2 here at MSPT 154, are being mostly cagey and careful. Very few showdowns have occurred, with most action being bet-call preflop and a bet taking down the flop action. However, on one particularly interesting hand, things got a little weird.
Baime made it 200,000 to go and Sun called from the big blind. The flop came , which Sun checked. Baime bet 250, and Sun called.
The turn brought . Once more Sun checked and this time Baime bet 375,000. Sun called.
The on the river slowed things down and both players checked.
Both players had Two Pair, Queens and Tens, with an Ace to ultimately split the massive pot, one of the rare showdowns in this head-up battle.
Sun has around 5 million in chips, with Baime taking the remainder.
