2016 WSOP: Shaun Deeb Wins $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Shaun Deeb has taken down WSOP Event #49: $1,500 Seven Card Stud, after overcoming a field of 331 players over three days on his way to capturing a coveted gold bracelet, and a top prize of $111,101. Deeb won his first career bracelet only last year at the $10k Pot Limit Hold’em event for $318,857, and following his latest victory in Las Vegas the 30 year-old pro now boasts $2,288,091 in live earnings, as well as a further $6,358,922 from the online arena. Following his impressive performance, Deeb explained:
“There’s a lot of run good in stud.. I had all the big hands and all the 3-way pots and I ran one big bluff and it got through and with the time it just had value so it was really easy to play. I didn’t really have to outplay anyone. Anyone would’ve won with my cards in that tournament.”
The $1,500 Seven Card Stud featured a prize pool worth $446,850, with notable pros subsequently finishing in one of the tournament’s fifty money spots including Robert Mizrachi in 46th ($2,257), James Obst in 28th ($2,717), Benny Glaser in 25th ($2,717), Vladimir Schemelev in 17th ($3,108), and Brandon Cantu in 11th ($5,438).
After reaching the final table of eight, Shaun Deeb then proceeded to eliminate four opponents on his way to facing Adam Friedman heads-up for the bracelet. As the final battle commenced, Friedman held a roughly 1.4 million to 1.1 million chips advantage over his remaining competitor, but Deeb managed to reverse roles and reduce Friedman to just 4BB by the time the deciding hand was played. After dispatching his last opponent to the rail, Deeb explained to WSOP.com:
“I was just happy to have some chips going into Day Three and it obviously was a super tough final table with a lot of great players who have been playing for over a decade.”
Final Tabel Results:
1: Shaun Deeb $111,101
2: Adam Friedman $68,666
3: Max Pescatori $46,312
4: Katherine Fleck $31,899
5: Eugene Katchalov $22,448
6: Yaniv Birman $16,147
7: John Monnette $11,878
8: Cory Zeidman $8,941
