Event 5: Clancy Builds a Stack

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 4: 100/200/25


Drew Clancy (pictured) has grown to one of the biggest stacks in the tournament and is currently sitting with 47,000, almost five times the original starting stack.

“I went from like 8,000 to 47,000 in just a few hands,” said Clancy.

Clancy got all in preflop with pocket aces against A-Q and pocket jacks and held up to triple up. He then felted another player when he called a raise with pocket fives, flopped a set and cracked aces.

The professional poker player from Orlando, Fl is no stranger to deep runs in tournaments. He is one of the 27 players waiting to get paid from the Borgata Winter Poker Open chip scandal.
