Maybe you remember the tale of Carter Gill. The online poker pro got the boot from all Harrah’s properties, including the Rio, when, in a fit of drunkeness, he tossed woman’s clothes out the window. This model behavior was done in the middle of the 2011 WSOP ME and he was forced to abandon a healthy chipstack in the main. While Carter was able to beg his way back onto the property for 2012, the same is not likely for current high profile property bans for Chan Pelton (who allegedly stole a 25k tournament chip in a WSOP Circuit event) and bracelet winner David Diaz who was “drunk and harassing” people but couldn’t remember it in the morning. [*see update below!]
While the pair may not be able to participate in the WSOP this year, they can still take a lesson from Gill who has since focused his efforts into tournaments outside US borders. Gill has been on a tear in Latin America, making poker headlines and racking up just under $500k in tournament earnings on the LAPT and the like since September 2013. So just because you’re banned from the biggest series in the world, doesn’t mean there’s not money (and prestige) to be made on the planet.
