Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) October 10, 2006
Four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Allen Cunningham has become the 13th member of Team Full Tilt, the most decorated collection of poker players in the game’s history.
At 29, Cunningham has been playing poker professionally for the past seven years and has quietly earned a reputation as one of top players of his generation. Most recently, Cunningham cemented his status among poker’s elite by finishing fourth at the 2006 WSOP Main Event, outlasting more than 8,800 competitors and earning more than $3.6 million.
Cunningham’s amazing performance at the Main Event came less than a month after he earned his fourth career WSOP bracelet in the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold ‘em event and nearly helped him defend his title as the 2005 ESPN/Toyota Player of the Year.
A Full Tilt Poker representative for the past two years, Cunningham’s addition to Team Full Tilt is a direct result of his overall poker skill and recognition by his peers that he belongs among poker’s elite.
"Allen Cunningham has simply been the best all-around player at the WSOP over the last two years. Team Full Tilt is honored to welcome such an accomplished player to its ranks", said Howard Lederer, fellow Team Full Tilt member.
Team Full Tilt is now a baker’s dozen of the world’s best poker professionals who have collectively won 30 WSOP bracelets. In total, Full Tilt Poker’s 50 professionals have a combined total of 67 WSOP gold bracelets.
Cunningham represents one of the fastest growing online poker sites, Full Tilt Poker, and spends several hours a week online helping amateur players learn the game by sharing his poker knowledge through real-time chats at the virtual tables.
