Evidently Shaun Deeb is giving up the whole MTT poker thing, despite being regarded by some as the best online tournament grinder in the world.
He opened a thread on 2p2 a few days ago with these words.
"yah Im burntout I hate them I'm done with them. I cant win live everyone was always right I cant win online I just ran good everyone was always right. I'm gunna take rest of year off hopefully and go do something else yah poker was good for a while but **** I hate what I've become. "
Apparently it's for real as a few other online pros chime in throughout the discussion.
You can check out the thread on 2p2 here.Last time we saw Deeb was at the WSOPE Main Event and seemed pretty happy with everything. We'll see if this "retirement" takes. It wouldn't surprise me if we see him back on the felt before long.
