Finally, a top pro has won a bracelet at the 2007 World Series of Poker. After Phil Ivey, Alex Jacob, Gavin Smith, and others have fell just short, Allen Cunningham was able to take down the $5,000 World Championship pot-limit hold 'em event.

Cunningham's accomplishment is just one of many in his impressive career. In addition to finishing fourth in last year's main event, Cunningham's victory makes him one of only six players who have won a bracelet in three consecutive years. The cash was his 30th at the WSOP, and only Jamie Gold and Joseph Hachem have more in total earnings.

His road to victory wasn't easy as Cunningham would have to outplay last year's champion Jason Lester, top pros Jeffrey Lisandro and Humberto Brenes, and Gavin Griffin. This was Brenes' second final table of the 2007 WSOP.

Other notable cashes from this tournament include Joe Sebok (11th), Chris Ferguson (13th), Eric Lynch (14th), and Scott Fischman (16th).
