My daughter was watching here on the east coast last night. Fell asleep…….
Woke up at 4AM and they were still playing. Set the DVR and went to bed.
Watched today. I only saw select hands but she said it was an amazing heads up duel.
I don't remember how many lead changes they said there were, ultimately, but at one point it was at least seven, as I recall. It was really remarkable to see the patience these two exercised. Cynn was also very adept at changing things up. He really had a knack for reading Miles, it seemed--except, and ironically, in a few all-in scenarios. I also thought that Hellmuth was doing a great job of analysis. I did think that Cynn was fortunate with some of his floats but that's the way things go. I did think that Miles' aggression was a little too robotic at times. It didn't seem natural and this may have been due to the on the fly coaching he was apparently receiving by his rail. Cynn really neutralized him with passive openings and calls in stretches, as pointed out by the commentators. Of course, this was made possible by hitting the flop, or later streets, during those same stretches. The only criticism I might have as far as play goes was that in a few instances, Miles would over play his hands after getting back into the game. It almost seemed like he allowed himself to become affected by a sense of momentum and that Cynn took full advantage. An example of this was the line he took during what ultimately ended up being the final hand. He had pretty much had just gotten back into it and then barreled off all his chips. Still, both players did an outstanding job--overall.

They were both playing pretty standard TAG style heads up.
