The former seat of Jason Potter who recently busted was replaced by Shaun Deeb. We caught Deeb in a hand where himself in early position, Rob Perelman in the hijack and the player in the cutoff saw a flop. Deeb checked to Perelman who bet 3,600 and the cutoff folded. Deeb made the call and then both players checked both the turn and river. Deeb turned over for a pair of nines which were good when Perelman mucked.
While the hand was a good start for Deeb who has a sizeable stack at his new table, sitting to his left is the largest stack at the table and one of the largest in the field in Biagio Morciano. At least Don Nguyen and his big stack are to Deeb’s right but talk about good position for Morciano! We’ll hopefully catch some hands between these players as there could be fireworks.
