Grinding the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) in Mexico is a yearly event for poker player Shaun Deeb.
The American poker pro has to take a trip to Mexico so that he can play these events, and so far has accumulated 57 online cashes since August 30. For Deeb, the trip is typically worth it as he is easily one of the most successful WCOOP players of all time, with several bracelets under his name.
American poker pro Shaun Deeb, 32, entered a lot of events at this summer's World Series of Poker and managed to win 2 bracelets, 15 cashes worth about $2.4 million (1 cash was worth $1.4 million - the biggest of his career) and earn lots of Player of The Year (POY) points!
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!
Last week the first round matchups have been announced for the second edition of the King of the Hill on Poker Night in America. This televised, special mini heads-up tournament consists of only four players, each required to shell out a $50,000 buy-in, and the emerging winner is going to take all the pot.
Multi-table tournament poker star Shaun Deeb just can't get himself away from yet another Twitter fight. Just last week, he came between Jason Mercier vs Brandon Cantu's heated comments on Twitter, and in the end had sided with his friend Mercier whilst delivered virtual blows to Cantu's credibility.
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.
PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $25k High Roller attracted 204 entries (44 rebuys). After 2 days of play, the field has now been reduced to 8 players, who will battle it out on tonight's final table - where a $1.4 million first place prize is up for grabs!
The chip leader is Shaun Deeb (picture) with 2,535,000 - almost 1 million more than his closest opponent. Deeb will be joined by the likes of Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, Tobias Reinkeimer from Germany, and Canadian poker pro Michael "SirWatts" Watson, who won over $2 million dollars at live tournaments last year. The final table will be broadcasted (1 hour delay) tonight at 20:00 CET (14:00 ET).

For those not familar with the names above, Shaun Deeb, Isaac Haxton, Justin Bonomo, David Vamplew (just to mention a few) are great, well-known players who made it through Day 3 and still have the chance of reaching the final table where a €800,000 first place prize is up for grabs.
Both Day 1 a and b have now come to an end with approximately 900 survivors, who now will get to rest a bit before it's time for Day 3 to start.

Shaun Deeb, 26, won his fifth (4 this year and 1 last year) Spring Championship of Online Poker event early yesterday morning! The win of Event #38-High (Horse $2,100 buy-in), an event that attracted 85 players, gave the Mexico-based American $46,325.
Thanks to eight Top 10 finishes and 4 titles at this year's SCOOP, Deeb took home the overall leaderboard and will get a EPT Grand Final prize package. He also won the High Stakes leaderboard and will get a 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure package. Lastly, he will get tickets to all MicroMillions II Events for finishing 6th in the low-stakes leaderboard.
The 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker at PokerStars is now halfway through and 7 action filled days and lots of events are in the books. Last week, we wrote about Viktor "Isildur1" Blom's two wins and Daniel Negreanu's second place finish. During the weekend Shaun Deeb joined Viktor Blom as the only multi-event winners when he took down Event #19-High ($2,000 Triple Stud) for $44,200 while Jason Mercier and Phil Galfond each earned six figures in Event #18-High ($1,000 PLO Omaha 6-Max with rebuys).
Not less than 3,397 players paid $200+$16 and entered the $750,00 Guarantee tournament at Full Tilt Poker last Sunday. After many, many hours of play the tournament was down to a final table, a final table which included no one else than online legend Shaun Deeb who has an FTOPS title and several major scores in his resume already.
Deeb played fantastic poker before the final table and it was easy to see that many of his final table opponents avoided to play against him. After a couple of hours he also stood as the champion with $132,787 to add to his Full Tilt bankroll.
