2018 WSOP: First Non-Bracelet Event won by Allen Cunningham for $14K

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Allen Cunningham
Posted on Friday, June 01, 2018 by "T".
Even if there wasn't a WSOP bracelet awaiting the top winner, the prize money is reward enough for most poker players who have joined in on the opening event of WSOP 2018. On May 29, 2018 (Tuesday), the $250 Daily Deepstack was the opening event to this year's WSOP, and the one who bagged the event was five-time bracelet winner Allen Cunningham.

A small prize for 1st place in this tournament. He does not even cover the entry amount in a buy-in tournament of 25, 50, 100 or 300 k. Instead Allen Cunningham's total earnings are excellent. I rarely heard of this player but 11 million and 266 k dollars earned in poker means enormous. That means this men playing poker very well.

The bracelet would have been nice, in addition to the prize. Rare to see a tournament with such small prizes in the WSOP.
Anyway, such money always comes in handy, and you can pay for a ticket to another WSOP tournament.
Although he has won 11 million in his career, I suppose he must have money to play other tournaments with better prizes.
We'll see if he has the same luck in the tournaments that remain.

A ver good reward for that buy in.
And the weird thing is that there wasnt many players in.
With only 259USD buy in i would expect more players in.
Probably they are in for the big money and not interested in change Smile

Who needs a bracelet when you win a nice tidy sum of cold hard cash? I have often wondered about bracelets and whether they really are worth winning. It’s nice t have a trophy but the money is surely far more important! Or is it? What do you think? I’m sure there will be a few views on this and I am interested to hear them.

Unless the bracelet has a value for me it is worthless.
It is exactly the same thing saying that you have won three first places in tournaments,
like saying, that you have won three bracelets.
Of course not all games awarding a bracelet. But so what?
In for the money, not the fame Smile

well yeah for me too a bracelet unless being made from precious metals and having a real retail value really has no real lure or emotional attachment. cash is king and it is the only reason I would be playing such tournaments, unless I would be mega rich already and play just for excitement, or like a hobby etc.

Very well done to Allen Cunningham for winning the $250 Daily Deepstack event. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented poker players in the world. He might win one or more WSOP gold bracelets this summer.

it must be boring in the background to know that you won a world championship poker event and not having the bracelet that is what really corrode the done more good for the money won the more I think he would exchange the prize for the bracelet I would trade and you
