Round up of latest results

The big headline of the weekend was Shaun Deeb's third WCOOP win. As Kristin Bihr reported, the past five years have been busy for Deeb. He got married, became a father, and won various poker titles live and online, including a WSOP bracelet. So in short this is a continuation of that theme. It's the eighth COOP win for Deeb, which is now two more than anybody else. Read the full report on the PokerStars Blog.

In other news, the final eight players in the $51K Ultra High Roller (the biggest buy in for an online poker tournament ever) return later today to play down to a winner. They'll be led by Mike "Timex" McDonald, who appears to be doing to online high roller events what he typically does to live ones. With blinds on their return set at 1k/2k 250 ante, the full line up is below:

Tîmex (Canada) 237,712
Cejakas14 (United Kingdom) 214,540
dpeters17 (Canada) 195,294
