Kyle Cartwright Captures 3rd WSOPC Main Event Title

Kyle Cartwright Captures 3rd WSOPC Main Event TitleThe 2017 WSOP Circuit IP Biloxi took place in Mississippi, with 343 players entering its $1,675 Main Event to create a prize pool worth $514,500. At the end of four days of intense action, it was perennial winner Kyle Cartwright who would eventually best the field to claim the tournament’s first-place prize of $118,332.
As a result, the 29-year-old pro has now won a total of 7 WSOPC gold rings throughout his career, including 3 WSOPC Main Events and 4 WSOPC side event. In 2014, Cartwright also picked up a WSOP bracelet at the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em event for $360,435, and following his latest victory now boasts $1,611,870 in lifetime earnings since his first live cash back in 2011.
This year, Cartwright has cashed in at a total of 19 tournaments, of which 10 were WSOPC events, and 6 were at the 48th Annual World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Commenting after his latest success, the pro from Bartlett, Tennessee, said:
“Tournaments, I don’t play too many anymore, but when I do I’m kind of successful. I should probably play more, but the cash at home is so good to where I don’t even want to travel anymore. I just stay close to home.”
Cartwright was the chip leader going into the tournament’s final day, and continued to forge ahead, ultimately making it all the way through to heads-up play where he faced off against Timothy Miles for the title. At this stage, Cartwright held a 2.3-to-1 chip over his remaining opponent, and despite Miles taking the chip lead on a few occasions, he was not able to keep the pressure up and slipped behind before the deciding hand was played.
The final hand subsequently saw Cartwright raise preflop holding A-K, before quickly calling the reraise all-in by Miles with A-10. The dealer then laid out a J-6-4-8-4 board to consign Timothy Miles to a runner-up finish worth $73,157, while Cartwright was awarded the gold ring. Heaping praise on his heads-up opponent, who has now amassed $2,177,684 in tournament winnings, Cartwright said:
“He is by far the best player I have ever faced heads-up. That’s not even a question. He was tough, but I kind of figured him out after a while.”
Final Table Results:
1: Kyle Cartwright $118,332
2: Timothy Miles $73,157
