Shaun Deeb emerged victorious at Event #49: $1,500 Seven Card Stud of the WSOP 2016. He beat a field of 331 players to take home a cool $111,101.
Last year, the 30-year-old won his first ever bracelet with the $10k Pot Limit Hold’em event win. After his latest triumph, Deeb now boasts of $2,288,091 in live earnings. That's not all. He has $6,358,922 in online winnings as well.
Speaking about his victory, Deeb said:
“There’s a lot of run good in stud.. I had all the big hands and all the 3-way pots and I ran one big bluff and it got through and with the time it just had value so it was really easy to play. I didn’t really have to outplay anyone. Anyone would’ve won with my cards in that tournament.”
The event was played over three days with a prize pool worth $446,850. Fifty spots were paid and some of the notable players who walked home with a return on their investment included Robert Mizrachi in 46th ($2,257), James Obst in 28th ($2,717) and Vladimir Schemelev in 17th ($3,108).
Eight players made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations, it was left between Deeb and Adam Friedman to fight it out for the title.
Despite Friedman's chip lead at the start of the heads-up battle, Deeb pulled off a phenomenal win.
“I was just happy to have some chips going into Day Three and it obviously was a super tough final table with a lot of great players who have been playing for over a decade,” he further added
