Giving Some Serious Credit Where Credit Is Due

Event 7 (Flight B)
Level 14 (1,000/2,000/300)
Total Entries: 198
Players Remaining: 44
Chip Average: 90,000
Jason Calnan (Revere, MA)
At the start of our Flight B coverage we mentioned the trophy winners sitting together at Table 8, Marsel Backa, Teddy Geddes and Alex Umansky, but we overlooked perhaps the hottest player at that table and in this entire field Jason Calnan, who is coming off of back-to-back-to-back Foxwoods title winning performances.

Calnan is a Foxwoods regular who prior to last October's World Poker Finals series had an impressive poker resume, with just under $40,000 in tournament earnings. But, since that series, he's been on fire and has won three titles in under two months, in some of the biggest events offered during the WPF and the Mega Stacks Challenge series in December.

Calnan's run started in a $500 WPF event in which he outlasted over 150 players to claim his first title and just over $12,000.

Just a few days later in that same series he'd win a $1,000 event, again taking home the title and just over $22,000 for first.

He wouldn't be done, as he'd finish the year strong with his third Foxwoods title, taking down a $600 event during the MSC series, earning another $31,000 for his championship run.

In total, he'd nearly double his career earnings in a span of a few months and is now over the $100,000 mark in terms of lifetime tournament earnings, a number that he'll look to add to over the remainder of the Card Player Poker Tour, as well as looking to add some CPPT hardware to his trophy case.

Calnan looks like he's in a good position to make Day 2 of Event 7 with an above average stack as he's currently playing close to 95,000 with just over an hour remaining in Flight B.
