Poker Winner's Former Wife Takes Cut

16 May 2005

BOSTON, Massachusetts – As reported by the Boston Globe: "Kevin Cantwell of Shrewsbury lost his poker face in the days after winning $640,000 in the New England Poker Classic finals at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

"…But he never offered to share his good luck with his former wife, to whom he owed $54,000 in child support payments.

"When Deborah L. Hays heard of his windfall through friends, she called a lawyer. Marie B. McGuirk of Northborough filed a motion in Worcester Probate and Family Court asking for repayment.

"Within a week of the court filing, Cantwell sent his ex-wife a check for the full amount."
