Deeb at the World Series of Poker

Deeb made his World Series of Poker debut in 2007 when he cashed in four events for a total of $67,000 in prize money. He came back to the WSOP in 2009 for five mor money finishes and took home $44,000 in winnings. Two years later Deeb came close to his first World Series title. He placed 4th at the $2,500 10-Game Mix / Six Handed tournament for almost $70,000.

His first WSOP title came in 2015, when he won the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship for over $300,000.

A second bracelet followed the following year in $1,500 Seven Card Stud, and he narrowly missed out on making it three titles in three years, but fell in second place in the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship in 2017.

In recent years, Deeb had become a perennial contender for WSOP Player of the Year, and 2018 saw him finally take the crown. A total of 16 cashes in Las Vegas, and four at King’s Resort for the WSOP Europe saw him win POY honors.

A third-place finish in Event #14: $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw set him on his way, before winning the prestigious Event #42: 25,000 Pot Limit Omaha for over $1.4 million to date, the largest cash of Deeb’s career. His next bracelet came less than three weeks later with victory in Event #74: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed Championship. He defeated Paul Volpe heads-up to win his second bracelet of the year.

He would have to wait until the WSOP Europe to have his POY title secured, but held off Ben Yu to take the title.

2018 POY Winner Deeb Reflects on Summer of Success

Deeb would come close to clinching POY in back-to-back years, but would have to settle for second-place behind Robert Campbell in the 2019 race.

In 2021, Deeb added a fifth bracelet in the prestigious Event #53: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller, the second time he won this event. He won $1,251,860, the second-biggest cash of his career behind his 2018 victory in the same event.

Deeb won his sixth bracelet in 2023 in Event #27: $1,500 Eight Game Mix. The win, along with several other cashes at the 2023 WSOP helped push Deeb over $12 million in career earnings

Controversies

Over the course of his career, Deeb has been involved in several “scandals” and controversies. A long-running feud between him and Daniel Negreanu turned personal in 2019, with Deeb suggesting a prop bet over whose marriage would last longer.

In 2019, he called out Bryn Kenney alleging that Kenney had freerolled his Triton Poker Million second-place finish.

Most recently, a prop bet between him and former WSOP Main Event runner-up Tony Miles “turned ugly” after Miles competed on American Ninja Warrior.
