Controversial poker pro Carter Gill finally grabbed his first major title last night after years of grinding the LAPT and APPT circuits.

The American outlasted 508 entries to win PokerStars LAPT Uruguay and lock up $218,692.

Gill achieved mainstream notoriety at the WSOP this summer when a clip of him losing a pot was dubbed “The saddest poker player ever.”

In the hand a super-confident Gill was stunned when he got three-outed on the river of a million-chip pot. His reaction was priceless. He’s since talked about the infamous hand and stated that he was merely trying to not show emotion.

Gill has numerous cashes on the LAPT but this is the first time he was finally able to close one out.

The LAPT Uruguay final table included Brazilian pro Joao "Bauer" Neto and Argentinean pro Ivan Raich.

Raich made it to heads-up but Gill finally got the best of him when his turned straight was crushed by Gill’s rivered flush. 

Gill came close to winning his first LAPT in September when he finished fourth in LAPT Panama for $57,060. Gill made no mistake upon making back-to-back LAPT final tables and powered his way through Uruguay.

Here are the complete final table results for LAPT Uruguay:


  • 1. Carter Gill - $218,692
  • 2. Ivan Raich - $172,568
  • 3. Ariel Mantel - $106,300
  • 4. Andre Korn - $79,100
  • 5. Juan Perez Solari - $59,840
  • 6. Cesar Sanguinetti - $45,100
  • 7. Joao “Bauer” NetoCesarm - $33,780
  • 8. Walid Mubarak - $25,840
