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 so he’s always on the hunt for another bracelet or POY sweatshirt.
PokerNews recently captured Deeb taking his dedication to new heights by hosting two live events at the WSOP, sprinting back and forth across the Bally Events Center to sweat the POY race more literally. Deeb’s hustle paid off as he ended up finishing eighth in the $3,000 6-Hand Limit Hold’em event for $11,980 and 64th in $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 another big player made a final deposit in the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championshipwhere he finished in fourth place for $94,606.
Deeb followed up his fifth-place finish in the Stud Hi-Lo Championship with a deep run in Online Event #4: $1,000 PLO 6-Max the very next day, managing to finish in 20th place for $3,992. The following day, Deeb found a 19th place finish in the HORSE Championship $10,000 for $20,193, his third major league win in a week.
These results tell you everything you need to know about Deeb’s performance in various matches against some of the toughest pitches in the entire series.
“Slowly I built,” said Deeb PokerNews earlier this week. “I have two final tables this week at $10,000, stuff happened but I’m glad I got a bunch of deep runs. I have a chance at POY now.”
But Deeb doesn’t attribute his recent WSOP success to hard work or dedication, but rather to a dazzled “lucky” hat he recently bought from another player.
“The hat definitely works,” he said. “I had left the hat in someone’s car, they got COVID, so I waited a week to get the hat back. So yeah, it was a hatless week and it was weird, I didn’t make any final tables I picked up the hat at the Triple Draw final table and then I’m going to the Stud 8 final table… that’s definitely not what’s under hat !”
Deeb’s 11 cashes so far at this year’s World Series have netted him $311,064 in earnings, which isn’t too shabby for a month’s worth of work. Deeb currently sits eighth in the POY rankings with 1,824 points.
