BrandonTemple • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Mark Thompson

Kyle Cartwright raised to 40,000 from under the gun, and was called by Mike Thompson in middle position, Lucas Tae in the cutoff, and Kevin Garosshen in the big blind.

Action checked to Thompson on a {9-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop, and he bet 35,000. Only Cartwright called.

The {j-Diamonds} fell on the turn, and Cartwright checked again. Thompson bet 200,000, and Cartwright check-raised all in. Thompson quickly called off his last 800,000 total.

Mike Thompson: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Kyle Cartwright: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Thompson's flopped set had been turned by the combo draw of Cartwright. Thompson needed the board to pair to avoid becoming the last elimination of Day 2, but the {3-Spades} ended Thompson's run one spot shy of the final table.
