In the final Remko on the Rail of the 2018 World Series of Poker, Remko Rinkema crunched the numbers on the Player of the Year race. He also compared Shaun Deeb’s 2018 to Chris Ferguson’s 2017 and crowned Deeb the “most successful WSOP Player of the Year ever.”
Numbers and charts seem to support that claim, but why just look at the results when you can watch the wins? Luckily, both of Shaun Deeb’s 2018 bracelet wins streamed live on PokerGO and Twitch and both victories are ready to be rewatched on both platforms. Event replays from over a dozen bracelet events are on-demand on PokerGO and archived final table replays from Poker Central’s WSOP coverage are available on Twitch.
While Deeb’s 2018 campaign started with a close call in the $1,500 NL 2-7 Lowball Draw event, he picked up his first bracelet of the summer in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller. The big buy-in event always boasts a star-studded field and a massive prize pool and this year’s final table featured defending champion James Calderaro, POY contender Ben Yu, High Roller extraordinaire Jason Koon, and the legendary Scotty Nguyen.
Deeb busted Calderaro and then outlasted the rest of the stacked final table to take home a career-best $1.4 million score. Rewatch the entire final table below and check out Day 2 action from the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller here.
The second Deeb win of the summer came in the post-Main Event Pro Bowl, or as the WSOP called it, the $10,000 6-Handed Championship. Much like the $25,000 PLO High Roller, the $10,000 6-Handed Championship regularly features the world’s best players and toughest competition.
2018’s final table was no different. Paul Volpe entered looking for his second bracelet of the summer, while WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown champion Scott Margereson and Super High Roller Bowl participant John Andress were also in contention. Deeb ended up victorious, beating Volpe heads up for a 4th-career bracelet and an $814,000 score.

Whether Shaun Deeb ends 2018 as World Series of Poker Player of the Year remains to be seen, but what we do know is that Deeb’s historical campaign will live forever on PokerGO and Twitch. Rewatch and relive the action now.
