$25,000 High Roller

Seat 1: Shaun Deeb - (2,536,000)

Shaun Deeb

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.
