Very few players have enjoyed as much success in the history of the World Championship of Online Poker has Shaun Deeb has. On Monday, Deeb added to his legend by picking up his second WCOOP title of 2018 and sixth overall while another highly-respected player from his generation picked up the first WCOOP title of his career.

Deeb outlasted 172 other players to win Event #59 High ($2,100 Six Max Pot Limit Omaha 8-or-better) for $69,011.45. ‘Leviathan101’ finished just one spot behind Deeb for $52,165.48 while ‘jutrack’ finished third for $39,431.78.

Patrick ‘Egption’ Tardif picked up the first WCOOP title of his young career in the Medium event, earning $29,948.84 in the process. The Low version of the event went to ‘Aces Amin’ and came with a $11,973.30 payday.

Despite all of the success that Steve O’Dwyer has enjoyed over the course of his career, a WCOOP title had somehow eluded him. That changed on Monday however as O’Dwyer won Event #57 High ($2,100 Eight Max No Limit Hold’em) for $227,100.97 – the largest online cash of his career.
