Allen Cunningham has been, without question, the best all around player at the WSOP during the last three years
Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) June 12, 2007
Team Full Tilt's Allen Cunningham proved again why he's considered one of the world's foremost tournament players after winning his fifth World Series of Poker* bracelet - and his third in as many years.
Cunningham's latest victory, which came in the $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold 'em event, makes him one of just 16 players who have won five or more bracelets throughout their careers. He is also only the fifth player to win bracelets in three consecutive years. The tri-fecta is becoming more and more difficult to accomplish in the "modern" era of the WSOP* and its ever expanding fields as evidenced by the fact that Cunningham is the first to win three bracelets in three years since Team Full Tilt's own Erik Seidel did it from 1992 to 1994. Other notable players who have accomplished this remarkable feat include Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson, Gary "Bones" Berland.
As a five-time bracelet winner, Cunningham is now tied with some of the game's best-known pros, including Team Full Tilt's Phil Ivey and Chris Ferguson, Full Tilt Poker's Layne Flack and Berry Johnston, and poker legends Stu Ungar and Ted Forrest.
In 2005, Cunningham was named the WSOP's* Player of the Year after reaching four final tables and winning the $1,500 No-Limit Hold 'em event. In 2006, he followed up that performance by winning his fourth bracelet in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold 'em event and posting an impressive fourth-place finish in the biggest Main Event in history.
"Allen Cunningham has been, without question, the best all around player at the WSOP during the last three years," said fellow Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer.
Collectively, Full Tilt Poker's 65 professional representatives now own a combined 73 World Series of Poker* bracelets.
