Congratulations to Kyle Cartwright, Winner of WSOPC IP Biloxi & 5th Ring ($107,992)
Just six players returned for Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Circuit presented by Southern Comfort 100 Proof IP Biloxi Main Event. The tournament started three days ago with 300 hopefuls and Kyle Cartwright was the last man standing that brought home a seat to the National Championship, a record-tying fifth gold Championship ring and $107,992.
The first casualty of the final table came when Dennis Pasentine opened for 60,000, John Dolan called and Cartwright raised to 143,000 from the big blind. Pasentine four-bet to 335,000, Dolan folded and Cartwright moved all in. Pasentine called, tabled pocket jacks and then saw he was behind Cartwright's pocket kings. Pasentine never improved and was eliminated.
Just 20 minutes later Jesus Cabrera open-shoved his short stack from the button and Brad Johnson called from the small blind. Cabrera held and Johnson was ahead holding . Johnson hit an ace on the flop and despite having four to a flush on the turn Cabrera bricked on the river.
The fourth place elimination came when Cory Wood shoved from the big blind after an open-raise from Cartwright. Cartwright called, tabled and Wood held . The board ran all blanks and Wood was eliminated.
Not more than ten minutes later Cartwright opened for 60,000 on the button, Dolan made it 150,000 from the small blind and Cartwright called. Dolan held two over cards with to Cartwright's pocket sixes. The board ran and Dolan wouldn't win his second ring of the series.
Heads up play began with Cartwright holding a seemingly insurmountable chip lead. Johnson had just 625,000 to Cartwright's 5.375 million. They got it all in on just the third hand of heads up play.
Johnson shoved on the button and Cartwright called holding two red jacks. Johnson held and watched the board run . Johnson was eliminated and Cartwright won the event in just under three and a half levels on Day 3.
It's worth noting that Cartwright has won his five rings in just under two and a half years of playing WSOP Circuit events.
