It almost counts as an upset that Connor "blanconegro" Drinan has failed to bring home a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title in 2021 after he rampaged to a record five crowns in 2020.

That could change after Day 2 of SCOOP-93-M: $1,050 PLO [6-Max, PLO Main Event], $750K Gtd.

With 18 of 935 entries left in the hunt, Drinan is among them, and he has secured a pretty big stack with 8,758,358, ranking third behind Ramon "ZรฉDoBlefe11" Sorgatto (15,437,916) and Tyler "Juicy_J_93" Jardine (9,952,887).
