Lance Howard and Veerachai Vongxaiburana continue to trade pots but for the time being, Howard is in front thanks to two decent-sized hands won.

The first hand, Howard opened to 125,000 on the button and Vongxaiburana called in the big blind. Vongxaiburana bet 200,000 on the Q♣J6♠ flop and Howard called. The 10 went check-check and Vongxaiburana checked the 5 river. Howard bet 250,000 and that was enough to get to Vongxaiburana to fold.

A few hands later, Howard opened to 150,000 and Vongxaiburana defended. Vongxaiburana checked the A♠K1093 board and then called a 175,000 river bet from Howard. Howard showed Q4 and Vongxaiburana mucked. Howard is playing 2,000,000 to the 1,585,000 of Vongxaiburana but there is still plenty of play left to be had as the blinds get set to go up momentarily.
