We are only a few hands into the heads up play and we have see a huge swing in the chip count.
I catch the hand from the live stream on a board that reads 4h4c9h7h O Brien has shipped the turn holding As2h and Keown snap calls holding 4s5s with about 850k in the pot at this stage.
There is a huge gasp from the commentators on the live stream about how the hand has played out.
We go to the river with O Brien needing a heart on the river to end it right there but it came the 7d to house up Keown and take a commanding chip lead.
John Keown – 4,500,000
Noel O Brien – 1,500,000
