Yet another SCOOP title for Shaun Deeb

Yet another SCOOP title for Shaun Deeb

Wednesday, 16 May 2012

With two SCOOP victories it looked like Viktor Blom would be the big story at this year's series. Despite that great success, Isildur1 has been eclipsed by Shaun Deeb though who bagged his third SCOOP win of the year overnight.

The Mexican-based pro beat a 74-runner field in the $2,100 Stud Hi/Lo – $75,000 guaranteed event to walk away with another $40,330. Not content with that, Deeb still found time to final table the $27 Low stakes one too. All told, the American has 19 cashes and seven final tables at this year's SCOOP, good enough to put him comfortably atop the High and Overall Leaderboards.

The Overall winner will receive an EPT Grand Final 2013 package, while each of the individual Leaderboard winners will get trophies and PCA 2013 packages.

There still plenty of action left in this year's SCOOP with 250 prizes up for grabs at Low stakes, 50 at Medium and 10 at High. Try your luck at PokerStars with a first deposit bonus of up to £400. Sign up here.
