Jeff Cunningham is the Champion of Grand Prix Philadelphia! Using his green/black Beast and Zombies deck, he dispatched surprise finalist Shaun Doran in three close games.

Although Cunningham is only 18, he was the grizzled veteran of this Top 8, and even though the draft went poorly for him, he managed to stay composed and pull it all together to take the prize.

Congratulations to Jeff!
