Freddy Deeb Wins WSOPC Bicycle Casino Main Event

Freddy Deeb has won the World Series of Poker Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event in Los Angeles, after defeating a field of 549 players over three days to lift the title, and collect the $171,810 first place prize.
Amazingly, the 2 times WSOP bracelet winner opted not to register on either Day 1A or Day 1B of the $1,500 event, but instead joined the fray on Day 2 with 20 big blinds, which was just half the average stack at that stage.
That didn’t bother the Lebanese born pro much, though, and Deeb soon became one of just 17 players to move onto Day 3. Involved in a three-way pot at the start of Day 3, Deeb’s pocket jacks held against his opponents’ A-K and pocket nines to boost his stack, and when he eventually reached the final table of nine, he was the chip leader.
The experience and aggression of Freddy Deeb then proved too much for his opponents as he began to steamroll the table. Deeb’s first victim was Julie Franks (4-4), who re-raised his A-9 all-in. Despite hitting a set on the flop, she then foundered on a 6-4-A-A-9 board and so was eliminated in 8th for $20,025.
Deeb with pocket sevens then looked up Tsung Lu’s Ad-4d pre-flop shove to dispatch him in 7th ($25,520), while Brandon Crawford’s open-shove under the gun (A-9) ran into Deeb’s pocket tens and so he too was sent to the rail in 6th for $32,900.
With no signs of slowing down, Deeb (5-5) then dispatched a short-stacked Tong Le holding 7-3 in 5th ($43,245), before being involved in an interesting hand with Leroy Spires. Deeb was holding pocket eights on a Jc-8h-3h-Qh board, while Spires had a Jh-9h flush, but after all the chips went in, Deeb made a full-house on the river as a 3 paired the board, thus sending Spires to the rail in 3rd ($77,570).
As heads-up play commenced, Freddy Deeb held a 2 to 1 chip advantage over  four-times WSOPC winner Alex Masek. However, Masek couldn’t get any traction and the defining hand was played after his A-K failed to improve against the pocket queens of Deeb.
Alex Masek collected $106,185 for his runner-up finish, while Deeb added $171,810 to his live tournament winnings, which now total more than $7.7 million.
