Kyle Cartwright - IP Biloxi Main Event Champ

Biloxi, Mississippi (September 18, 2016) – Kyle Cartwright came away with his third World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event title on Monday. The 29-year-old maneuvered 343 entrants in Event #10: $1,675 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event to win $118,332 and his seventh gold ring. It was his second Main Event title at the IP Biloxi Circuit stop.

The tournament took four days to complete, including two separate starting flights. Cartwright made it through Flight B, bagging a top-15 stack going into Day 2.

From there, Cartwright went on to have a dominant Day 2. He entered the unofficial table with just over one million in tournament chips. Then, ended the day as outright chip leader, holding a stack worth 2,750,000. This set up a Day 3 strategy for Cartwright.

“I was going to play aggressive because I heard so many guys saying ‘I want a pay jump’ and stuff like that,” Cartwright explained. “So, I was playing a lot of hands; I mean I had no playback at me. If they played back at me they had it.”
