Shaun Deeb won his fifth bracelet when he outlasted 212 runners to win 2021 WSOP Event #53 $25,000 PLO for a score worth $1,251,860. Meanwhile, Ben Yu banked $721,453 and his fourth bracelet as the last player standing in WSOP Event #56 $10,000 6-Handed NLH Championship. Brian Yoon also won his fourth bracelet with a $839,350 score in WSOP Event #57 $10,000 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship.


The 2021 WSOP continued at the Rio, and a trio of pros added another bracelet to their ongoing collection. Ben Yu, Brian Yoon, and Shaun Deeb were already multi-time bling winners, but they padded their stats with a couple more major victories over the last couple of days.

Shaun Deeb had a health scare last year when he came down with COVID while grinding WCOOP in Mexico. He documented his bout with COVID on social media while the poker trail got real-time updates during his stint in a hospital. He fully recovered and Deeb returned to the winner's circle for a fifth time in his career.

Deeb won the $25K PLO back in 2018 for his fourth-bracelet victory. He won his first bling in 2015 and finally joined the exclusive 5-timer club as the 28th member in the history of the WSOP to reach that milestone. He's only 35, and should win five more to reach double digits. But can he catch Hellmuth, who won his fifth at age 29?

2021 WSOP Event #53 $25,000 High Roller PLO attracted 212 runners and a prize pool slightly over $5 million. The top 32 places earned a cut of the prize pool. Notables who went deep and cashed in the $25K PLO included... Ben Lamb, Tommy Le, Jeremy Ausmus, Joao Vieria, Martin Dam, Jerry Wong, Bryce Yockey, Chance Kornuth, Ben Yu, and Scott Seiver. Tommy Le bubbled the final table in ninth place.

The final table for the $25K High Roller included Shaun Deeb, Ka Kwan Lau, John Beauprez, Maxx Coleman, Veselin Karakitukov, David Benyamine, Ben Lamb, and Charles Sinn. Deeb and Lau were heads up for the title, but Lau could not handle Deeb. Deeb won $1,251,860 and added a fifth bracelet to his collection and a second High Roller PLO title.

WSOP Event #56 $10,000 6-Handed NL Championship attracted 329 runners and a prize pool worth $3,067,925. Only the top 50 places paid out. Notables who went deep in the 6-Handed Championship included Matt Berkey, Vojtech Ruzicka, Niklas Astedt, Pavel Plesuv, JJ Liu, Sam Grafton, Nick Yunis, Fabian Quoss, Mike Watson, Elky, Nick Schulman, Ryan Laplante, Jeff Gross, Jake Schwartz, and Matas Cimbolas.

The final table included Ben Yu, Nikita Kuznetsov, Ariel Mantel, Mike Sowers, Steve Yea, and Asi Moshe. Boris Kolev bubbled the final table in seventh place.

Russia's Nikita Kuznetsov and Ben Yu were heads-up for the bracelet. Yu picked off Kuznetsov in second place, which paid out $445,892. Not too shabby, eh? Yu won $721,453 for his fourth-career bracelet. Yu won his first bracelet in 2015 and added more bling in back-to-back years in 2017 and 2018.

WSOP Event #57 $10,000 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship attracted only 80 runners and a prize pool worth $746,000. Only the top 14 places paid out and notables who cashed in the event included a min-cash from Mike Matusow, Shaun Deeb, Dan Zack, Michael Trivett, Nathan Gamble, and Dan Smith.

The final table of seven featured Jordan Siegel, Brandon Shack-Harris, Joao Vieria, Don Nguyen, Wil Wikinson, Danny Wong, and Brian Yoon. Mike Thorpe bubbled the final table in eighth place. Wilkinson busted in third place, which set up a big-time heads-up battle between Brian Yoon and Danny Wong. Wong was unable to rally from behind and he settled on a $148K score for second place. Not too shabby, eh? Brian Yoon banked $240,341 for the victory and added bracelet #4 to his growing collection.
