2007 WSOP: Freddy Deeb H.O.R.S.E. champion

Freddy Deeb is the H.O.R.S.E. world champion

Freddy Deeb ended day 4 of the tournament in spectacular fashion when he made quad sixes to eliminate Gabe Kaplan and cripple Thor Hansen, and Lady Luck stayed with him all the way.

It wasn't, however, an easy journey to victory in the $50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E. event for Freddy Deeb. He was in bad shape several times on the final day, especially when play was three-handed against John Hanson and Bruno Fitoussi.

Deeb stayed alive, turned things around, and had a commanding lead when the heads-up match for the title against Bruno Fitoussi began. The Frenchman put up a good fight, but never managed to close the gap.

In the final hand, the game was Seven-Card Stud Eight or Better. An 8-7-5-4-A for the low, and a pair of fives for the high, was enough for Freddy Deeb to scoop the pot and win the tournament.
