Shaun Deeb Takes Down Two Tournaments on Full TiltPublished on January 26th, 2011 1:17 am EST
Shaun "tedsfishfry" Deeb has been the biggest beneficiary so far of "Double Guarantees Week" on Full Tilt Poker, taking down two 1,400+ entrant events over the past 48 hours.
Full Tilt Poker is running "Double Guarantees Week" to bring awareness to their new "Multi Entry Tournaments". All of the Weekly Guarantees on Full Tilt Poker this week are having their guaranteed prize pools doubled, and they are all switching to the "Multiple Entry Tournament" format for the week as well. This means that the Weekly Guarantees on Full Tilt this week will have $30 million in total guaranteed prize money.
The $1k Monday last night ended up with a total of 1,454 entries which created a total prize pool of $1,454,000. This weekly event usually has a total guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. Many of the participants in last night's $1k Monday purchased a total of four entries (the maximum for the event), which resulted in the prize pool swelling to over $1.4 million.
Shaun "tedsfishfry" Deeb was one of the players who purchased four entries, and his investment definitely paid off. Deeb ended up taking down the tournament for $312,610, his largest ever cash in a tournament.
Deeb actually ended up cashing twice in the event due to the Multiple Entry Tournament format. Deeb, as mentioned, won the tournament, but another one of his entries ended up finishing in 68th place for $2,471.80.
Deeb had this to say on Twitter after winning:
"Ohhhh nice rivers new best score 312kish was pretty awesome ft celebrating with booze"
The celebration didn't last very long, as Deeb was right back at it on Tuesday, taking down another 1,400+ entrant tournament on Full Tilt Poker.
This time it was the Turbo $100k Guarantee ($200+$16) that Deeb took down, as he managed to navigate through a 1,415 entrant field to take down the $60,845 first place prize.
Once again Shaun "tedsfishfry" Deeb bought four entries, and once again it paid off in a large score.
Some people don't seem to be big fans of the new "Multiple Entry Tournaments" on Full Tilt Poker, but I don't think that Shaun Deeb is one of them.
