SCOOP 2013: Shaun Deeb shows himself (again)

So, you thought you were going to get through this SCOOP series without three or four love letters to Shaun Deeb, didn't you? You thought, "Deeb...that's so 2012." Well, you thought wrong, dear readers. Deeb is making another run for Player of the Series, and he's found his footing once again.

Sometime over the weekend, Deeb caught fire and made two final tables. He's not actually won anything so far in this series, but he's cashed 15 times and finished in second place twice. The effort has propelled him to second place on the overall leaderboard, just behind Brazil's ninototoroko.
