Charles Gindy is an American former professional player. His accomplishments include a Pro Tour win at PT Hollywood 2008, winning the 2009 United States national championships, and four Grand Prix top eights including a win. Gindy has been considered a specialist at the Team Limited format, with three of his top eights, including the win at GP Washington, D.C. in 2004, coming from Team Limited Grand Prix events.

At the 2009 World Championships, Gindy received a disqualification for fraud, intentionally allowing a Master of the Wild Hunt to be misplayed.[1] This resulted in the ineligibility of the United States national team in the competition. The disqualification was widely debated in the Magic community afterwards.[2][3]
