Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Deeb Done and Dusted

Shaun Deeb

Stud 8

Shaun Deeb began the day as one of the chip leaders, but to say Day 3 didn't treat him well would be an understatement.

Deeb fell to a short-stack recently and was moved to a new table. It was there he would meet his end at the hands of Abe Mosseri. We missed the hand as it unfolded, but Calvin Anderson was kind enough to fill us in after the fact.

As he explained it, Deeb got it in on fourth street with eights, which were behind the queens of Mosseri.

Deeb: {8-}{7-} / {5-}{8-}{10-}{7-} / {x-}
Mosseri: {q-}{j-} / {q-}{8-}{8-}{j-} / {x-}

By sixth, Deeb had made two pair, but Mosseri had, too, and his was bigger. Anderson couldn't recall the cards on seventh, but he did say they both bricked. That meant Deeb's day came to an unexpectedly early end.
