One side event at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is the 2014 PCA Event #7: $2,000 Open-Face Chinese and Shaun Deeb used it as an opportunity to showcase his impressive skills. Nobody was surprised when Deeb emerged victorious and claimed the first prize worth $32,380, ahead of Paul Volpe and Yu Benjamin.
There was no shortage of poker professionals at the 2014 PCA Event #7 and even though they lost to Shaun Deeb, most were satisfied with their performance. Yu tweeted his fans about his performance and apparently he was more than happy with the results and Paul Volpe did the same, praising Deeb for his flawless game.
