Event #4 - Kyle Cartwright 2014 WSOP
Share this

It all started with 2,223 players that were hoping to hold on over three days to eventually top the field and take home the cash and the gold bracelet. Those players created a massive $2,000,700 prize pool and the winner was going to take home $360,435. When the dust settled and the celebrations were ready to begin, it was Kyle Cartwright claiming top honors in Event #4: No Limit Hold'em at the 2014 WSOP.

Top 10 Results:

1Kyle Cartwright$360,278
2Jason Paster$223,418
3Ylon Schwartz$157,855
4Daniel Dizenzo$113,499

7Robert Kuhn$45,635
8Ken Weinstein$34,552
9Michael Sortino$26,489
10Steve Chanthabouasy$20,547

Day 3 started with 12 players and in the first half hour of play, two of them were on the rail and the unofficial final table of 10 players was underway.

One by one they fell until it got down to heads-up play; a dinner break was declared and once play resumed, Cartwright had 4,605,000 with Jason Paster trailing at 2,025,000. It didn't take long after that for the tournament to find a winner.

Paster raised from the button to 100,000. Cartwright answered with a raise to 270,000. Paster shoved for 1,845,000 and Cartwright quickly called.

Cartwright {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Paster {4-Clubs}{4-Spades}

Both players stood. It was as if the table felt had a life of its own and neither player could move while they waited for the board to run out {5-Spades}{q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Clubs}.

And then Cartwright exploded into action — arms in the air and then racing to the rail for an embrace with his supporters before coming back to shake hands and receive congratulations from Paster.

Congratulations Kyle!
