Shaun Deeb, 26 from the United States, enters the final table as the chip leader with more than 25 percent of the chips in play. Deeb has amassed nearly $1.9 million in career live tournament earnings, including a runner-up finish in the $5,000 Bounty Shootout ($75,000) held at the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Deeb’s largest cash to date came in the star-studded, $25,300 mega satellite into the $1 Million Big One for One Drop this past summer, where he finished runner-up earning a tournament buy-in. The event was capped however, so Deeb pocketed the million dollars.
Deeb is more known for his dominance on the virtual felt – in 2012 he won four SCOOP titles, he has won two-career WCOOP bracelets, and he has also earned an FTOPS jersey.
Deeb is guaranteed to take home $129,940 at this final table, making it the second-largest live cash of his career, but with the chip lead, he’ll be gunning for the win.
