Shaun Deeb is one of the most successful players who is more known for his online results. His grandmother opened "shaundeeb" the world of poker and at the age of 5 he learnt the game rules. The poker was not his main hobby up to the age of 16, but after that Shaun began to be actively interested in it. After some time he registered online at two large poker rooms: Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars. From that moment his poker career, which went up quickly, has begun.
After school, Deeb entered the University of Bentley, but, just like many other poker players, he quitted studying, since it prevented him from focusing on the play completely.
Having enough free time, Shaun started to progress successfully and began to multi-table by playing at the 20-30 tables simultaneously. He is called as one of the toughest online opponents, and for a good reason, since his biggest successes include 8 wins at the WCOOP, 2 wins at the SCOOP, multiple hitting into the prizes and first places in other tournaments. The amount of his online winnings is more than 7,1 million dollars.
As for live events, Deeb has also shown his skills there. In addition to other awards he has managed to earn 4 WSOP bracelets, two of which Deeb won in 2018:
He has won a lot of prestigious tournaments and hit into the prize zone more than hundred times. The overall Sean Deeb’s winnings in live events exceed 7,6 million dollars.
Just at the WSOP 2018, Deeb won over 2,5 million dollars. This allowed him to become the best player of the series in 2018.
