In one of the first hands at the start of Level 25, Kyle Cartwright was able to get over 1,000,000 chips back from his nemesis, David Troutman, to pull near him for the chip lead.
Cartwright opened to 100,000 in the hijack and Troutman called in the cutoff. Nick Kortenber tagged along from the big blind and the flop rolled out A♥3♥2♦. Kortenber checked and Cartwright bet 140,000. Only Troutman called and the 2♣ turn saw Cartwright bet 275,000 more.
Troutman stuck with him and the 7♦ fell on the river. Cartwright bet 560,000 and although he didn't look thrilled to do it, Troutman called. Cartwright showed A♠3♠ and Troutman's A♦9♣ was no good. Troutman falls to 3,200,000 and Cartwright is back up to 2,850,000.
