2014 WSOP Event #4 $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Event $4, a $1000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em contest that's often referred to as the grinders event, attracted a field of 2,223 players and amassed a prize pool of $2,000,700.  Winner, Kyle Cartwright, collected $360,278 of the total while the following 242 top finishers also went home with some of the cash.

This was Cartwright's first WSOP gold bracelet; but, not his first WSOP win.  He has accumulated five rings from event wins on the World Series of Poker Circuit.  His combined WSOP winnings now total close to a million dollars

Even though the $1000 buy-in is small when compared to the championship events the gold bracelets remain the same and the prize pool often exceeds some of the bigger tournaments as a results of the large fields.  There is typically no shortage of well known professionals and this year's first large No Limit Hold'em event included well known Humberto Brenes and Ylon Schwartz.

Ylon Schwartz was favored to win it all but was eliminated in third place setting up the heads-up between Kyle Cartwright and Jason Paster.  Cartwright praised his fellow players and friends for helping him develop his winning  “A” game.

The following list of final table players shows order of finish and prize money collected:


  1. Kyle Cartwright ----- $360,435

  2. Jason Paster ---------- $223,518

  3. Ylon Schwartz ------- $157,926

  4. Daniel Dizenzo ------ $113,550

  5. Matthew O'Donnell - $82,726

  7. Robert Kouhnn ------ $45,635
