August 21, 2017

Level 28 (50,000/100,000/10,000)Total RG Main Event Entries: 582Players Remaining: 1Chip Average: 11,640,000 David Troutman started heads up play with a wide gap between him and Kyle Cartwright (pictured) and in less than 15 hands, their match was complete with Troutman coming out on top.  Troutman opened to 200,000 on the button and Cartwright shoved for 1,900,000 from the big blind. Troutman called with A♠10♠ and had the A♣7♠ of Cartwright crushed. The 10♥9♣3♠ flop left Cartwright with few outs as only running cards would save him.

The K♠10♣5♥ flop kept Cartwright in the lead and the 4♥ turn would give Stanford a flush draw. Stanford missed on the 3♠ river and...
