Cartwright Claims Third WSOPC Ring

2011 Harrah’s St. Louis WSOPC main event champ Kyle Cartwright.

It appears another budding superstar was born on the World Series of Poker Circuit in St. Louis Tuesday night.

23-year-old Tennessean Kyle Cartwright earned his third WSOPC gold ring in just the past three months taking down the 2011 Harrah’s St. Louis WSOPC main event.

The University of Memphis graduate earned a career-high $142,290 for the win just 100 days after winning two consecutive WSOPC gold rings at Harrah’s Tunica.

“I feel like I have a small advantage for some reason," he said. "I’m not sure how to explain it, but I think I do."

The $1,600 buy-in event drew 449 players creating a $646,762 prizepool, the largest in Missouri state history.

Not since 2009, when Dwyte Pilgrim recorded 12 cashes, seven final tables and a win in the championship event at Rincon, has a player been so dominant on the WSOPC.

Pilgrim when on to win a major title at WPT Borgata in 2010.

Cartwright held nearly a third of the chips in play to start the final table and wrapped things up in less than four hours.

The next stop on the World Series of Poker Circuit event schedule is Caesars Palace in Las Vegas April 14- 30.

Here's how the final table finished up in St. Louis:

1 Kyle Cartwright $142,290

2 Asheesh Boyapati $87,927

3 Ron Segni $64,249

4 Phil Stelzer $47,705

5 Troy Weber $35,973

6 Chris Viox $27,533

7 Mitch Franks $21,382

8 Steve Goff $16,842

9 Nick Jivkov $13,453
