Shawn Cunix Wins WPT Jacksonville BestBet Open

Not long before the WPT Jacksonville BestBet Open began, Shawn Cunix saved his son’s life (or at least saved him from serious injury), pulling him to safety from an approaching four-wheeler. In doing so, Cunix broke his collar bone.

Playing with his arm in a sling, Cunix gutted out a win at the WPT Jacksonville BestBet Open. In doing so, Cunix became the first person in the history of the world to actually be rewarded for a good deed. Seriously, do some good deeds and see how much you get shit on for it. We dare you.

Anyway, this is Cunix’s first WPT title. He banksĀ $400,600 for the win.

Cunix defeated James Calderaro ($236,560) heads-up for the title.

WPT Raw Deal host Tony Dunst finished fifth for $66,532. And Will Failla moved into the WPT POY lead by finishing sixth for $54,704.
