WCOOP 2015: Third Bracelet For Deeb While Ultra High?

WCOOP 2015: Third Bracelet For Deeb While Ultra High?Shaun Deeb is one of poker’s most successful players, with an impressive $2,088,224 in live earnings, including a WSOP bracelet, to go with the $6,174,976 he has won playing online. Now relocated to Mexico in order to continue his lucrative online poker career, the family man recently joined a select club of three-time WCOOP bracelet winners, after taking down Event #44: $215 NLHE 4-Max for a $68,000 payday. The handful of other winners in that exclusive category includes Anders “Donald” Berg, Ryan “g0lfa” D’Angelo and Mikal “mikal12345” Blomlie.
Nevertheless, PokerStars recently felt compelled to offer an apology to the 29 year-old player after posting a perplexing article entitled: “WCOOP 2015: Third Bracelet For Deeb While Ultra High.”
At least, that all of the headline the site’s software allowed to be shown on its page, and that is what was subsequently displayed on google search. The whole headline should have read “WCOOP 2015: Third bracelet for Deeb while Ultra High Rollers reach final”. Suffice to say, no one was actually accusing Deeb of being ‘as high as a kite’ at the time of his win, and it didn’t take long for the pro to join in the fun by tweeting the following message:
“Dear @PokerStars I think it’s a little presumptuous to claim what my mental state was during my win.”
This then lead to a humorous response by Brad Willis on the pokerstarsblog in an article entitled; “We don’t know if Shaun Deeb was high when he won a WCOOP bracelet.” In the post, Willis then had a bit of fun suggesting other headline titles that could have been used for Deeb’s poker story, including:
“Third bracelet for Deeb while rolling a fat…win to the bank.”
“Third bracelet for Doob, no…we mean Deeb.”
“Hot in WCOOP Deeb still smoking, bowls over competition.”
The entertaining piece can be read in its entirety here, and concludes with Willis stating: “We humbly apologize to Deeb and anyone else who might have been offended by our robot overlords who truncate headlines. Now, please pass the Cheetos.”
