2015 WSOP: Shaun Deeb Wins Event #15: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Tags: Shaun Deeb.
Posted on 08 June 2015 by "T".

Shaun Deeb took down the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship on Saturday after outlasting 128 entries over three days of play. The famous high-stakes pro received his first WSOP gold bracelet along with the $318,857 top prize after defeating Paul Volpe heads-up.

Besides Volpe and Deeb, there were a few other big names on the final table (see final table results below) - which is being described by WSOP reporters as "the most stacked final table of the 2015 World Series of Poker".

"This was one of the toughest final tables I've ever played against," Deeb said afterward. "This was the second time I've made the final in this $10K PLO event, and to come out on top against these caliber of players was just great. It was really special to get this against Paul (Volpe), because we play together all the time. I know he wanted to win, but to get my first against him was just amazing the way it all happened."

The first-place prize money probably won't make a big difference to Deeb's life, given that he's regularly playing the biggest cash games and most expensive tournaments. But there's something special with winning a bracelet...

"This is the biggest stage of all, where it's at in poker, and where you have to win to prove yourself," Deeb said. "I wanted to cross this off my bucket list for quite some time, and I finally took it down."

I am bit confused by this. The title says he just won a 10k High Roller Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship yet in the interview he seems to talk about Pot-Limit Omaha which makes me guessing what exactly did he won or played for?

there's no need to be confused there bowie dude- superpochie will gladly help you out: this tournament was a tournament of poker, therefore dudes had to do something with cards and plastic cut-outs in the form of circle (called chips, not potato chips). since he won it, he asked what the fcuk did he win? since tourney had 74 directors, there had to be some mixup, but really... who the fcuk cares?

Thank you superpochie, you are always there when the truest pleb needs ya. So he won a bag of chips? PLO means People Love Oral? Did Shaun acted in Shaun of the Dead?
Sooo many questions.

A good win for Shaun Deeb and a nice payday to go with it.I don't think his main event has gone to plan though as I am sure I saw him going out on the first day of play.
He has cashed 6 times so far in this years WSOP for over 500k so I am sure he is not too concerned about the odd loss. Smile

That just explains the mix-ups in the interview I guess. He was probably on a hot streak anyway.
