2018 WSOP: Shaun Deep Wins Third WSOP Bracelet in $25,000 POT-LIMIT OMAHA 8-HANDED HIGH ROLLER

USA's Shaun Deeb, 32, bested a star-packed field in Event #42: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed High Roller to claim yet another WSOP bracelet and $1.4 million in prize money! It was the Las Vegas-based online and live poker pro's third WSOP bracelet after winning his first two in 2016 and 2017. Not to forget, the $1,402,683 winner's check is the largest of his career!

"It's crazy to get here," Deeb said. "A couple of years ago, I made two PLO final tables but got seventh and eight. I really felt like I got unlucky, but there's such variance - cracking aces, having aces hold, it's everything in this tournament at a final table. I got a great start to the day, got the chip lead, was really never in a bad spot. I was able to control the pot size the way I wanted to in almost every hand. It really helps to not get in an inflated pot with a marginal hand."

Final Table results: 

1st: Shaun Deeb, $1,402,683
2nd: Ben Yu, $866,924
3rd: Scotty Nguyen, $592,875
4th: James Calderaro, $414,134
5th: Jason Koon, $295,606
6th: Ryan Tosoc, $215,718
7th: David Benyamine, $161,020
8th: Bogdan Capitan, $123,004

Other notables who made the money:
Among those cashing in Event #42 were Jason Mercier (12th, $77,107), Luis Velador (13th, $63,350), Martin Kozlov (14th, $63,350), Robert Mizrachi (15th, $53,391), Craig Varnell (16th, $53,391), Christopher Frank (18th, $46,190), David Prociak (20th, $46,190), Sam Soverel (24th, $46,190), Mike Leah (25th, $41,049), and Erik Seidel (26th, $41,049).

Entries and prize pool:
230 players entered the tournament which created a prize pool of $5,462,500. The top 35 finishers received a minimum cash of $37,500.

I dont think you will see many better final table line ups than this one. This final table is full of legendary poker players and it must have been very daunting for everyone sitting at the table

When i saw the buy in, i wondered how much the first place would pay, since it
was omaha, a game that many like.
And the prize was great with almost 1.5 millions usd Smile
Last place also paid good with like 5 times the buy in.

a good result ... of course the remarkable winnings of one and a half million dollars and the course of the poker career is also steep ... three bracelets in three years is certainly a sign of a stable and good player ..... so my forecast that next year he will again win another bracelet

Well I was rooting for Scotty for this one as he is such a legendry WSOP player but no luck for him. Congrats Deeb for adding an another great win to your career.

This tournament was almost full of professional players. This buy in of 25.000 dollars is a huge one for ordinary players. Not all amateurs play here. Instead it can make a few people who have a lot of money but not too many of course. Congratulations to the winner.

Congratulations to the American Shaun Deeb, who after having many difficult opponents in the final table, I can take the WSOP bracelet and take a very good sum of $ 1,402,683 that I think is not bad: D I can not imagine the pressure that should have in that last table surrounded by so many good players and the emotion after having been able to win Tongue

Massive well done to Shaun Deep on winning the $25,000 buy-in high roller tournament and scooping the first-place prize of $1,402,683! He managed to outplay many notable poker players, including Scotty Nguyen, Jason Koon, David Benyamine, at the final table. This is absolutely a noteworthy achievement.

It would really be a dream for me to win a bracelet but I know that it's never gonna be a reality for me sadly. I just hope that I can sometime play at least one really big tournament and hopefully be able to cash in it. But that's a long time from now if it ever happens!
