RG TUNICA MAIN EVENT (DAY 2): Kyle Cartwright and David Troutman Tangle

Level 24 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total RG Main Event Entries: 582
Players Remaining: 7
Chip Average: 1,665,000

Chip leaders Kyle Cartwright and David Troutman have stayed from each other for most of the final table. The two have a sizable edge on the field but traded a few punches in a recent hand, perhaps leading to a larger confrontation down the road. 

Troutman opened under the gun to 80,000 and William Stanford called from the button with Cartwright calling from the big blind. 

The QQ8 flop checked through and Cartwright bet 90,000 on the 9 turn. Only Troutman called and the A hit the river. Cartwright bet 165,000 more and Troutman called once again.

Cartwright turned over Q♣7 for flopped trips to take the pot. Troutman is still the chip leader with 3,000,000 but Cartwright is right behind him with 2,750,000.
