Shaun Deeb is the defending Player of the Year.  He is on good track to repeat it.Shaun Deeb continued to add to his trophy case this past week after taking down two WCOOP events.

A week after taking down the $1,050 No Limit 5-Card Draw event, Deeb was at it again, this time winning the $530 Pot Limit Omaha tournament for $52,371.

For a short time, Deeb was the only double champion at this year's WCOOP series, though "xnrobix" joined Deeb in this exclusive club a short time later after taking down the $5,200 PLO and $2,100 NLHE High Roller events.


This was the eighth WCOOP (World Championship of Online Poker) title of Deeb's career, putting him just one title behind Denis "aDrENalin710" on the all-time WCOOP title list.

Given the amount of volume that he puts in and the wide range of games that he is proficient in, the smart money would be on Deeb winning his 9th WCOOP title in short order.


Deeb, despite being just 33 years of age, has one of the most impressive resumes in all of poker.

In addition to his eight WCOOP titles, Deeb has also won five Spring Championship of Online Poker events on Pokerstars.

On top of all of that, Deeb also has four World Series of Poker bracelets, with his biggest win coming in the $25,000 PLO 8-Handed High Roller event in 2018, where he cashed for over a million dollars.

Deeb is the defending WSOP Player of the Year and has a very good chance of winning the award two years in a row.

Deeb has over $7.5 million in total lifetime live tournament cashes, with a recent $778,300 win in a $25,000 High Roller event at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open pushing him over the $7 million mark.
