On the first deal of ten-handed play, Kyle Cartwright opened to 32,000 from the hijack. Steve Chanthabouasy made the call from the button, as did Ken Weinstein from the big blind.

The flop was {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Weinstein checked and Cartwright bet 48,000 with a call from Chanthabouasy and a fold from Weinstein. The turn was the {2-Hearts} bringing a third heart and Cartwright continued for 113,000. Chanthabouasy made the call and the river was the {5-Clubs}.

Cartwright quickly moved all in, easily having Chanthabouasy covered. Chanthabouasy agonized for a couple minutes before eventually calling off his last 250,000 approximate.

Chanthabouasy flipped over {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for top two, but Cartwright had flopped a set and his {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} eliminated Chanthabouasy and increased his chip lead.
