Shaun Deeb won his third WSOP bracelet when he defeated Ben Yu to win the $25K PLO High Roller. Deeb outlasted 230 players to win Event #42 $25,000 PLO High Roller for $1,402,683. Scotty Nguyen took third place. Deeb knocked out last year's champ James Calderaro in fourth place. Deeb is currently in first place in the WSOP Player of the Year race.

Wafflecrush'd. Another wild Saturday night at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. Several bracelets were up for grabs, but it was the $25K High Roller that turned the most heads and attracted the attention. One of the greatest online pros in the history of the internet gambling won his third bracelet. Shaun Deeb binked his third WSOP event since 2015 and he added $1.4 million to his bankroll.

This year's $25K PLO jamboree attracted 230 players and a $5.4 million prize pool for Event #44 $25,000 PLO High Roller. The stacked final table included the likes of last year's champ James Calderaro, Ben Yu, Scotty Nguyen, smoking-hot Jason Koon, David Benyamine, Ryan Tosoc, and Shaun Deeb. Whomever won this event would certainly earned every cent of the $1.4 million first-place booty. Alas, by the end of the night, Deeb was the last player standing.

Deeb won the cash, the bling, and rocketed into the top spot on the WSOP Player of the Year Leaderboard. Deeb earned enough points with the $25K win to pass Johnny World Hennigan, who slipped to second place.

Event #42 $25,000 PLO High Roller - Final Results

Ship it to Ted's Fish Fry's scion Shaun Deeb.

Wafflecrush'd three times. Everyone's favorite upstate New York pro, Shaun ‘tedsfishfry' Deeb, won his third bracelet. Deeb has now picked up at least one bracelet every summer in three out of the last four years. Deeb binked his first bracelet in 2015 when he won the $10K PLH event for $318,857. I mean, that's a sick score for a PLH event. In 2016, Deeb won his second bling when he took down a $1,500 Studament. Add now you can add a PLO bracelet to his resume. Deeb has now cashed in 57 WSOP events and his WSOP earnings topped $3.3 million.

Deeb almost won his third bracelet last summer, but finished in second place when Ben Yu defeated Deeb heads-up in the $10K Triple Draw Championship to win his second bracelet. Deeb got heads-up with Yu once again, but got a little sweet revenge this time. Deeb knocked out Yu to win Event #42 High Roller and his third bracelet.

Tough as balls final table in this $25K PLO affair. Romania's Bogdan Capitan was the soft spot by default. He walked into one heck of an ambush and was the first player to exit at the final table. David Benyamine went deep in another event, but he couldn't finish higher than seventh place.

Ryan Tosoc's amazing run ended when he busted in sixth place. Somehow, red-hot Jason Koon got cooled off in fifth place. I thought he was a shoe-in for a bracelet this summer... and maybe he will win one in the next two weeks, but I really thought this was going to be the big one for Koon. Alas, Deeb had a different script in mind.

James Calderaro tried to win back-to-back $25K events, which woulda been redonkulous. Alas, last year's champ was knocked out in fourth place.

How about Scotty Nguyen? Just when you thought the world was passing Scotty by.... NOPE! Scotty went deep, made the final table, but he whiffed on another bracelet. Scotty finished in third place, which was good enough for $593K.

With Scotty's elimination, it came down to Ben Yu and Shaun Deeb, Two young guns. Both had won two bracelets and were seeking a third. Alas, Deeb defeated Yu. Deeb banked $1.4M and slapped a third piece of bling around his wrist. Yu settled on a consolation prize worth $866,924. Not too shabby, eh?

Yu took third in the $10K Stud just the other day and he's cashed in 9 events so far this summer. Yu's advanced to two final tables, but he could pull off the end-game magic. Yu earned a second place and third place finish in the last couple of days. Yu also moved up the POY leaderboard and he's in the Top 10.

Jon Depa bubbled off the final table in ninth place. Among those went superdeep in this PLO High Roller... George Wolff (10th), Ves Karakitukov (11th), Jason Mercier (12th), Luis Velador (13th), Martin Kozlov (14th), Rob Mizrachi (15th), Craig Varnell (16th), Konstantin Beylin (17th), and Chris Frank (18th).

Other notables who cashed included.... Omar Z, David Prociak, Mike Song, Sam Soverel, Mike Leah, Erik Seidel, Tom Marchese, Adam Owen, and Paul Volpe.

WSOP POY Race

Speaking of Player of the Year… we have a new leader. Shaun Deeb earned 1,236.44 points for the $15K PLO High Roller win, which rocketed him into first place overall in the WSOP POY Race. Deeb leapfrogged Johnny World Hennigan, who looked like he had a formidable lead after final tabling the $50K PPC.

Elio Fox won a bracelet during the opening weekend of the WSOP (which feel like a year ago!) and followed it up with a second final table in the first week of action. That put him out in front, until Johnny World Hennigan crashed the party. This has been a sensational summer for Johnny World. He shipped his fifth bracelet and had with several deep runs of note including a runner-up in the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, which he lost heads-up to The Grinder.

Fox is currently third overall. Deeb, Hennigan, and Fox are the only three players who have at least 2000+ POY points. With a second-place finish in the $25K PLO, Ben Yu moved into the Top 10. Yu is 8th overall.
