Deeb then emerged victorious at Event #26 $2,100 7 Card Stud H/L for $40,330.00 to complete this year’s remarkable hat-trick.
In his latest victory, the 26-year-old overcame a tough 74 player field which included such names as Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Anders Berg, Alex Kravchenko, Ville Wahlbeck and George Danzer, none of whom made the twelve man cash bubble.
Nine hours of play later, and Deeb made it through to the eight man man final table eventually defeating New Zealand’s ‘PerpCzech’ heads-up after Eugene Katchalov was eliminated in 4th for $14,060 and Brazilian Rodridgo Caprioli in 3rd for $20,720.

A distant 2nd is Belgium’s JRADF79 on 305, and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom tied in 3rd with 290 points. Neverhteless, the young Swede has won more money than anyone else this series after an incredible run in which he has won two titles for $438,408.
