Deeb’s dedication to the game has been widely documented over the years. The 2018 WSOP Player of the Year is known for playing a full schedule to always be on the lookout for another POY wristband or sweatshirt.
PokerNews recently captured Deeb taking his dedication to new heights by live multitasking at two WSOP events, doing a round-trip sprint through the Bally Event Center to sweat more literally the POY race. Deeb’s uproar paid off as he finished eighth Hold’em limit to 6 hands of $ 3,000 event for $ 11,980 and 64th al $ 1,000 Flip & Go for $ 2,880.
On June 18, Deeb finished fifth in the $ 10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $ 83,465, just four days after the final presentation of another great player to the $ 10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championshipwhere he finished fourth for $ 94,606.
Deeb followed his fifth place in the Stud Hi-Lo Championship with a deep race Online event no. 4: $ 1,000 PLO 6-Max the next day, finishing in $ 20,992. The next day, Deeb found a 19th place finish $ 10,000 HORSE Championship for $ 20,193, his third cash at a high-level championship event in a week.
These results tell you everything you need to know about how Deeb is performing in various games against some of the toughest fields in the entire series.
“Little by little I’ve been building myself up,” Deeb said PokerNews earlier this week. “I have two final tables this week at $ 10,000, some things had happened there, but I’m happy to get a lot of deep executions. Now I have a chance at POY.”
But Deeb doesn’t attribute his recent success to the WSOP for hard work or dedication, but for a dazzling “luck” hat he recently bought from another player.
“The hat is definitely working,” he said. “I had left the hat in someone’s car, they had COVID, so I waited a week to get the hat back. So yeah, it was a week without a hat and it was weird, I didn’t make any final table. I recovered the hat during the final table of the Triple Draw, and then I go to the final table the Stud 8 … it’s definitely not what’s under the hat! ”
Deeb’s 11 players so far in this year’s World Series have earned him $ 311,064, not too bad for a month’s work. Deeb currently ranks eighth in the POY rankings with 1,824 points.
