Former WSOP winner Shaun Deeb hospitalized with COVID-19


On Sunday night, Four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Shaun Deeb tweeted that he is currently hospitalized with COVID-19. Deeb recently visited Mexico as he participated in PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). 

WCOOP legend Deeb was looking to claim his ninth record leveling title but failed to do so. He exited the tournament at 7th place, earning just $28,596 for his efforts rather than the moment of online poker history that he surely craved.

For many this global pandemic has brought significant changes in people’s life. Deeb is one of the more prominent members of the poker community to be diagnosed with COVID-19, a disease that has so far been detected in 31.2 million people worldwide, including 5.56 million in India. Many believe the actual number of infected to be much higher due to undetected cases.

Deeb had kept the news regarding his health status for a week and a half. Since the announcement, he has been posting regular updates on his twitter handle. He did note that he was having connection issues joining WCOOP events, with PokerStars displaying a message that he could not play real money gaming from his location. 

At the time of being admitted into the hospital, Deeb had made multiple Day 2s in upcoming WCOOP events.  “I will say this wcoop grind while sick was on a whole nother level for me I may lost a chunk but I played the best at like 10% Strength sleeping during every 5m break everyday.”

Deeb appears to be in good spirits, even making light of the situation he finds himself in. Though he is hospitalised, it has not affected his ability to play, “You not really a #wcoop grinder if you’re not one handed 10 tabling on touch pad in a Mexican hospital with covid”.

We hope for a quick recovery and looking forward to see him at the felts soon. For more updates about the poker industry, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com
