The World Series of Poker Circuit 2015-16 at Harrah’s Tunica Event: #8 $365 No-Limit Hold’em Monster Stack drew in 457 entries as well as created a US$ 137100 prize pool. Earlier on Thursday, that event came to a finish with Kyle Cartwright as the very last man standing.
If that name appears quite familiar, this is because they once viewed as Cartwright “Poster Boy for the WSOP Circuit.” This is because from the year 2011-2012, Cartwright caught fire by snatching 5 rings as well as attempting then all-time ring leader Mark “Pegasus” Smith.
With his recent victory, Cartwright caught his 6th gold ring, even though this is no longer the record as others have gone ahead since the World Series of Poker Circuit started offering twelve rings at each of their stops.
At present, Alex Masek holds the record for most rings with 9, the most recent coming last year. Behind him are Ari Engel, Valentin Vornicu and Chris Reslock are all tied with 7, while Cory Waaland and Cartwright sit tied with six.
However, securing his 6th ring as well as a US$ 29,484 1st spot prize at his home casino, mainly after an extended delay, suggest a lot to Cartwright, who also secured a World Series of Poker gold bracelet at the World Series of Poker 2014 when he took down Event #4: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em for US$ 360435.
After the win, World Series of Poker officials were told by Cartwright that this has really been a long time. He has not won 1 since the year 2012, but he has not played too much really. He stopped traveling for the most part. He played more cash games.
