Biography

Shaun Deeb is an American professional poker player currently residing in Mexico. He's mostly known for his accomplishments at the online poker tables rather than on the live tournament circuit.

At the live tables Deeb has the record of 21 World Series of Poker money finishes.

Intro

Deeb was born in 1986 in Troy, New York. He began playing poker at the age of 16.

He has five SCOOP titles and two WCOOP wins to his name including numerous big cashes in some of the major online poker events.

Background

He attended Bentley University, but dropped out quickly in order to pursuit a career as a professional poker player. Deeb is known as one of the toughest opponents in the online realm, as he can be found playing 15 to 20 tables at the same time. He also has a decent live tournament history with more than 20 WSOP cashes and a couple of first-place finishes in some minor tournaments.

World Series of Poker

Deeb made his World Series of Poker debut in 2007 when he cashed in four events for a total of $67,000 in prize money. He came back to the WSOP in 2009 for five more money finishes and took home $44,000 in winnings. Two years later Deeb came close to his first World Series title.
