With both players sitting on massive chip stacks, heads-up play has been pretty slow so far.

Mark Edward Kerness limped from the button for 12,000, and Steven Bennett checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Ac7h4h, Bennett bet 35,000, and Kerness called.

The turn card paired the board with the 4d, and both players checked.

The river card was the Ks, Bennett checked, Kerness bet 100,000, and Bennett thought for a moment or two before he called. Kerness showed 10c4c to win the pot with trip fours, and Bennett mucked.

Mark Edward Kerness  –  1,500,000  (125 bb)
Steven Bennett  –  840,000  (70 bb)

Here are the payouts they’re playing for:

1st:  $33,010 + SHRPO Trophy
2nd:  $20,700
