Tournament Tracker heads out into the vast poker community once again, featuring results spanning four continents. This week’s featured result features a player who became a viral sensation for his reaction to a bad beat as he finally breaks through to win his first major tournament. The final table of the PokerStars Latin American Poker Tour Grand Final in Uruguay had Carter Gill was in a familiar position, holding a dominant chip stack at the start of the final table. When in this spot at the LAPT Main Event in Panama, Gill finished in 4th place and was in no mood to duplicate the feat. His domination of the final table continued until he was heads-up, holding a 19 to 1 chip lead over Ivan Raich. Victory temporary slipped from Gill’s grasp as Raich came charging back until he held a 3-1 chip advantage. Eventually, the tables turned once again and when Gill put Raich all-in on the final hand, the Argentinian couldn’t fold his straight as Gill made a flush on the river to take his first major title and win over $215,000.
