Seat 3: Andrew Pantling, 30, Canada - 4,180,000
Canadian born Andrew Pantling is the CEO of sports betting website MatchBook.com, but for the longest time he made his money as a professional online poker player. Pantling, currently living in London, plays unter the handle "ClockWyze," and mostly grinds No-Limit Hold’em Short Handed $25/$50 cap games. Over the years Pantling has also had his share of live tournament results. Back in 2009 he finished third in the Irish Open Main Event for €205,000, followed by a runner-up finish in the £2,500 Six Max No Limit Hold’em WSOPE event for £105,506.
His only tournament victory came back in 2010 when he won the €5,000 No Limit Hold’em Heads Up event at the EPT Grand Final. In 2012 he also managed to cash the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final when he finished in 26th place. Pantling took up poker while in his early 20s. He was based in Malta at the time so was easily able to travel to live events around Europe. Although not as familiar as some of the faces at this season’s EPT Grand Final, Pantling is well-respected by his peers.
