Only 40 big blinds are in play in heads up with Rob Cowen and Trevor Reader playing for the title. Reader started heads up play with the lead, but Cowen has used aggressive play to take the lead.

In one hand, Reader opened to 95,000 on the button and Cowen called in the big blind. The Q♠7♠6♠ flop checked through and Cowen led for 145,000 on the 10 turn. Reader released and Cowen took the pot.

Additionally, twice Reader has opened the button to 100,000 and then folded to a Cowen three-bet to 300,000.

As things currently stand, Cowen is playing 1,205,000 to the 900,000 of Reader but that could change with one pot.
