With William Stanford (pictured) and Kyle Cartwright having similar chip stacks and a $12,000 pay jump in play, there was a fine line between making heads up play and coming up short of a larger prize. Stanford had been unlucky in a few spots at the final table and once again, came up just shy of where he needed to be.
Cartwright shoved on the button for 1,100,000 with K♣Q♦ and Stanford called from the big blind for 90 percent of his stack with K♥J♥. 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 was eliminated on the next hand. Cartwright enters heads up play with 2,450,000 to the 9,200,000 of Troutman with the first title of the RunGood Season officially up for grabs.
