PCA 2014: Shaun Deeb wins Shaun Deeb's game (and other side event news)

Well, of course he did.

It's almost silly, really. Shaun Deeb is largely responsible for teaching the poker community as a whole how to play Open-Face Chinese poker. He did everything he could to grow the game. He did a seminar on the game last year at the PCA.

And so, of course, Deeb came in yesterday and won the PCA's Open-Face Chinese side event.

Of course.
