Carlos Mortensen continues to rack up major victories in poker tournaments; the latest notch on his belt came at the WPT Hollywood Poker Open, where Mortensen captured his third WPT title –tying Gus Hansen for most all-time—on his way to winning almost $400,000.

Mortensen who won the 2001 World Series of Poker Main Event, and another bracelet in 2003 in Limit Holdem, is now #12 on the all-time money list with $9.2 million in career earnings! He is also the only player to win the WPT Championship and WSOP Main Event.

Mortensen was able to outlast a very game final table, after entering the day with the chip-lead.
