Deeb Way Out in Front in SCOOP Player of the Series RacePublished on May 16th, 2012 1:30 pm EST
Shaun Deeb did it again on Tuesday, taking down his third SCOOP (Spring Championship of Online Poker) bracelet of the year after winning SCOOP #26-H ($2,100 Stud Hi-Lo).
Deeb was able to navigate his way through a field of 73 other entrants to take down the first place prize of $40,330. As mentioned, this was Deeb's third SCOOP bracelet of the year and fourth of his career.
Deeb's three SCOOP bracelets this year have all come in Stud events:
Event 10-H (Stud), $41,000
Event 19-H (Triple Stud), $44,200
Event 26-H (Stud Hi-Lo), $40,330
As mentioned, Deeb now owns four SCOOP bracelets - his first bracelet was won in a $162 PLO Six-Max Rebuy event in 2010.
As you can imagine, Deeb's incredible performance so far this year has put him far in front of his competition in the SCOOP Player of the Series Race. Here are the current standings:
"shaundeeb", 645 points
"joacowalter", 410 points
"Jorj95", 345 points
"JRADF79", 310 points
"Isildur1", 290 points
Of Deeb's 645 points, 400 have come in High buy-in events.
