Allen Cunningham Passes $1.6 Million
24th of November 2013
With Allen Cunningham’s a fourth place finish recently, he has managed to earn enough money to push his 2013 poker winnings passed $1.6 million. Cunningham took home $483,000 from last week’s Foxwoods World Poker Finals: this makes 12 “in the money” finishes for the young Team Full Tilt member. It would seem that Cunningham has no worries of finishing “on the bubble” which means one spot short of earning a prize.
Cunningham’s victories so far this year, including Ultimate Poker Challenge’s $3,000 Buy-In No-Limit Hold ‘em tournament, and the World Series of Poker’s $1,500 Buy-In No-Limit Hold ‘em event. It was during the latter event that he earned more than $725,000 and his third WSOP bracelet, which also made him the first player to earn a million dollars before the start of the main event at the World Series of Poker.
“Allen’s unassuming style has always created a big gap between his skill and other peoples’ recognition of that skill,” said fellow poker pro Howard Lederer. “2013 will be the year that gap disappears.”
