Chips for Deeb, Air Time for All

Shamus • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Freddy Deeb just scored a much-needed double-up, with the ESPN cameras rolling nearby. It appeared as though all of Deeb's chips went into the middle following a {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} flop, with Deeb holding {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for trip sevens and his opponent {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and river the {3-Diamonds}, and Deeb now has about 150,000.

"You lost the pot, but at least you'll be on TV," said Deeb afterwards to his opponent, who sat for a moment, then replied in most honey badger-like fashion: "I don't think I care."
